Snowboarding Gingerbread Peeps

I am so excited to be participating in the group project … Give the Gift of Gingerbread … with many talented bloggers that you may already know!  I’m sure that you will find some wonderful ideas and recipes and even have the chance to win a great prize!  All of the info is after the directions for my Gingerbread Project!

When you hear gingerbread, what do you think of … gingerbread cake, gingerbread boys or maybe Gingerbread Peeps?  These Peeps jumped right into my grocery cart … OK, I helped a little.  It was decided … they were going home with me!  Within five minutes I knew the Peeps would be snowboarding and skiing … they are very athletic little guys!

I picked up the Gingerbread Peeps because of their cuteness.  When I opened the package, I was surprised how good they smelled … just like gingerbread!

This is how to bring your Peeps to life and what you will need …

skiing snowboarding peeps supplies

  • Gingerbread Peeps
  • White candy coating (such as CandiQuik)
  • White/clear coarse sugar
  • Graham cracker squares
  • Fruit Stripe Gum (I found it at Michael’s)
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Large round edible confetti

gingerbread peeps directions

  1. Melt candy coating according to package directions.  Cut or trim graham crackers if necessary.
  2. Spread/smear a little candy on a cracker … I just used the back of a spoon.  Let the candy sit a minute or two, but not harden up.
  3. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and let candy harden up.  Shake off excess sugar and reserve for reuse.

4.  Use kitchen scissors to cut Peeps apart.

5.  Cut gum to shape skis (pointed end) or snowboards (rounded)

6.  Make ski poles – my pretzels were a little long, so I broke about 1″ off (snacks for later), attach flat end to large sprinkle with a dot of melted white candy.

7.  Attach the Peep to the graham cracker with a little melted candy … add more melted candy in the back to support the Peep if necessary.

That’s it … pretty easy, wasn’t it?

  2. How come when most of us look at Peeps – we just see Peeps? But not you – – – – oh no. You’re thinking skiing and how to make the skis and boards. Geez….. I envy your creativity. I don’t like gingerbread anything, but these are just too cute NOT to make!

    Thanks for the just too cute idea.
