Sista Felicia’s Marshmallow Peeps Easter Egg Suprise!
Don’t you just love when inspiration strikes! Last week while shopping at Scalafini Bakery I noticed one of my favorite childhood Easter treats on the shelf for sale. The creative wheels in my head started turning and latter that afternoon I surprised my nieces and their friend Karlee Lorden with this Marshmallow Peeps Easter Egg Surprise! …And for the record it took 10 guesses before the girls guessed the correct filling inside the chocolate egg! They had a great time taking turns guessing during dinner time!
Can you guess what’s inside?
