These cute DIY PEEPS Bunny Easter Pretzel Treats are perfect for party treats, Easter baskets or a pretty Easter brunch table decoration.
When it comes to Easter and candy treats, PEEPS is one of the first things that come to mind! They have been a part of our family Easter tradition for as long as I can remember. They always find their way into every Easter basket and it just wouldn’t be Easter without them.
My mom is the BIGGEST Peeps fan, but she has one quirk. She likes them best after the package has been opened for a super long time and they have hardened. At the very first sighting of Peeps in the spring I try to buy a package, open it and let it sit until Easter. She loves her “pre-hardened” PEEPS!
Those sweet marshmallow PEEPS aren’t only good for eating “as-is” – we also like to use them in Easter PEEPS recipes.
This year we’re making something new with these DIY PEEPS Bunny Easter Pretzel Rods! They’re so fun and easy to make and they look super cute once you’re finished! They make a great party treat or easter basket filler.
To package the treats individually I recommend these pretzel rod favor bags. Since they are totally clear you can see the pretzel through the baggy. Tie them up with a pretty ribbon and you have the perfect party favor or gift.
Another serving idea is to place your pretzel rods upright in clear mason jars. It kind of makes a bunny bouquet! It’s a cute way to decorate the table for Easter brunch.
