Easter Surprise Cupcakes Recipe - A Fun Holiday Treat!

Easter Surprise Cupcakes
A Fun Holiday Treat!

I came across this fun cupcake idea on the website Tablespoon and I knew I had to make something similar for our family's Easter celebration! I love how simple it is to put together and it's a fun dessert that you can have the kids help with!

  • 24 pre-made cupcakes, cooled (your choice of flavor/color)
  • 1 container of frosting (your choice of flavor/color)
  • 24 marshmallow PEEPS chicks
  • 1-1 1/2 cup assorted mini candy-coated chocolates, jimmies or confetti candy sprinkles (we used Easter and Spring themed Wilton's sprinkles and M&Ms speckled egg-shaped chocolate candies) 

Tools needed: Melon baller (or spoon, small measuring spoon)

Using melon baller, scoop out center of each cupcake, about 1 inch deep.

Fill each cupcake with 1 heaping teaspoon of candies as you can fit them.

Frost cupcakes with desired amount of frosting and top each one with a PEEPS chick.

Store loosely covered. 24 servings


  1. These are so fun! My kids would love this. Hmm, wonder what else I could hide in there as a surprise...

  2. So cute! I spent 90 minutes stuffing eggs last night. I think I bought to many.

  3. Okay, these are AWESOME!! I'm going to have to do something like this for Passover. Heck...who cares. I love Peeps and Cadbury eggs...I'm doing this for 'jus because'!

  4. Pretty funny - someone was creative putting this idea together. I'm sure kids will love them!

  5. This is fun!! Kids would love these!

  6. Sarah, you make me want to go make these now. How creative!!
