So if you haven't guessed by the pic above, we went to Disney! It was the first time ever for any of us, can you believe that?
I saw these Mickey Mouse Peeps (who knew they made Mickey Peeps???!) back around Christmas time and scooped some up since I knew we had the Disney World Trip planned for this February. And what better way to tell the kids we were going to there? Yep Mickey and Minnie Mouse Peeps Pops!
Add a little melted candy melt or chocolate to a pop stick and insert into marshmallow. Let harden.
Dip the marshmallow ears into melted black candy melt. Michaels is selling the black Wilton's candy melt year round now but you could use chocolate or other candy melt colors would be fun too.
Minnie's red bow is just more red candy melt and before totally hardened, add some white non-pareil sprinkles. Attach to pop with more candy melt.
And you get some pretty simple Mickey and Minnie ear PEEPS Pops! We told the kids the day we left for the airport with these pops. So fun!
And in case you are interested in our Disney trip, here are some of my instagram shots from the week!

We definitely had a great time and there is still plenty to do if we go back. Disney does it well too, the new Fantasyland is really neat and my little girly girl was able to play a part in the Enchanted Tales with Belle character experience, so that was really cool. Oh and the Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom is intense, my boys are still recovering from it! Anyway, a great time had by all at the happiest (and most expensive!) place on earth!
