Easter Peeps mini cakes

I didn’t post anything yesterday for my Sunday night dinner because I was planning my Easter Sunday menu. So, most of my post this week will be Easter related. I love this time of the year because it reminds me
of when I was a little girl. My sister, cousin and I would go stay up the night before preparing for church.
We had to sing every year for my grandmother’s church. After church, we would go back  to grandma’s house for big family soul dinner .AHHHH. There would be those big Easter basket filled will different candy.
So, I try to recapture they same family gathering for the next generation.

This is a very easy recipe that I love because it has Peeps Marshmallow ,store brought cake mix  and white chocolate.












Ingredients
1 box of Ducan hines Butter cake mix
2 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips
2 -3 Packages of peeps marshmallows
Sprinkles and kind you like










Preheat oven at 350.  Mini-cake pans or cupcake pan
Prepare cake according to box. Lightly spay pans. Once mixture is set pour in to mini cupcake pans and bake 12- 15 mins or until tooth pick comes out clean. Let cool. While cake is cooling, place 2 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips, in microwave safe bowl and on high for 30 seconds. Take out and stir and repeat until it is melted.
Then once its melted take each cake and dip in the top of cake until it’s cover. Take peeps and dip just the bottom part in, then place on top of each cake.  Then  take the sprinkles and throw on top, wait for it to set then you can eat.
