Love to feast on Peeps come springtime? The iconic marshmallow chicks are the star of the latest food mash-up by Dunkin’ Donuts.

The doughnut chain is launching Peeps flower-shaped doughnuts for Easter. They’re iced doughnuts with Peep marshmallow chicks at the center of the doughnut.

The doughnuts are decorated with pastel pink or green icing and come topped with a pink or yellow Peep.

The new doughnuts will be available for a limited time at participating locations nationwide beginning Monday.


And since we’re talking Peeps, you may want to try making your own this Easter. Test Kitchen director Noelle Carter has a recipe for homemade “peeps” that’s easy and fun. And the best part? You can decorate them any way you like. But for the Peeps purists, two dots of melted chocolate eyes should do the trick.

We’re wondering how all these Peeps will fit into a diorama. Anyone have any ideas?
