When I think about PEEPS® marshmallow candies I can’t help but think of the yellow chicks and bunnies that were always in my Easter basket when I was growing up. These days PEEPS® has expanded to cover most major holidays as well as PEEPS® that can be enjoyed year round.
I looked forward to the newest PEEPS® to join their ever growing collection.
Believe it or not PEEPS® has Valentine’s Day treats that you and your loved one can enjoy. They even have some new varieties you might want to check out.
This year PEEPS® is offering consumers the following products to share with your special someone on Valentine’s Day.

- Cherries Drizzled and Dipped in Chocolate (3 ct)
- Chocolate Covered Raspberry Flavored Hearts (individually wrapped)

- Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts (9 ct)
I had the opportunity to try out some of the Valentine’s Day PEEPS® treats.
The Chocolate Covered Raspberry Flavored Hearts barely made it out of the box. I enjoyed it right away. I was surprised at just how fruity it tasted, especially because it’s a marshmallow. The chocolate coating only added to it’s deliciousness.
I LOVE the Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Crème Flavored Chicks PEEPS® too. They DO taste like chocolate covered strawberries! And much cheaper than the real ones too.
The Cherries Drizzled and Dipped in Chocolate are not bad either, but I prefer the Raspberry and Strawberry ones.
I wanted to do something creative with the heart shaped PEEPS®. When I think about hearts and Valentine’s Day I think about the iconic conversational hearts. That gave me an idea. Why note write messages on the PEEPS®? I took it one step further and stuck the marshmallow PEEPS® on lollipop sticks. I was hoping to make a centerpiece with them but due to the weather – and feeling under the weather – I was unable to visit the craft store for more supplies.
Here are a couple of “conversational PEEPS® hearts” that I made.
I was surprised at how easy the lollipop sticks slid into them. I was worried he marshmallows would loose their shape when I tried to insert the lollipop stick but that did not happen.
I tried to think of something fun to do with the other Valentine’s Day PEEPS® but being under the weather my tired brain wasn’t being very creative.
I have to chuckle a bit because when I went to the PEEPS®website (www.MarshmallowPEEPS.com) I saw that they also wrote messages on the heart shaped PEEPS®. Silly me. I thought I came up with an unique idea. I guess the makers of PEEPS® beat me to it. Ha Ha.
They have recipe for a Black Forest dessert on the PEEPS® website that looks delish. To bad my kids (and I) gobbled up the PEEPS® Chocolate Dipped Cherries Drizzled in Chocolate. After the big winter storm we are having is long gone I’m going to see if I can still find these PEEPS® locally so I can try this yummy recipe out.
The PEEPS® crispy treats look easy to make too. You could even chat a bit a purchase pre-made treats and top them off with PEEPS® heart.
The PEEPS® website has A LOT of great recipe ideas that are worth checking out. They can be enjoyed on Valentine’s Day or any time of the year. You can even use them in baking.
They even have some Valentine’s Day craft ideas too.
