How to Make Peeps Race Cars for Easter! They were a lot of fun to make and they were very simple! #Peeps #EasterCrafts

Peeps Race Cars

For the most part, kids can assemble these Peeps cars by themselves. There’s just one tricky part that you’ll need a knife for, so I recommend parents do this first. You will need to cut a notch out of the Twinkie for the Peep and the pretzel steering wheel. I used a bread knife because the Twinkies are somewhat delicate and the bread knife makes very clean cuts in the cake.

Cutting a Twinkie to make a Peeps car

I cut the notch slightly off-center to create a “hood” for the race car. It is just large enough to keep a Peep and a pretzel in place.

To make the wheels stay in place, I used candy melts (CandyQuik also works great!). Just place a small dab of melted candy on the back side of Fudge Dipped Oreo Thin Bites. The melted candy hardens quickly, making this a great job for kids!

To add extra color to our Peeps race cars, we added pastel sprinkles to white fudge Flipz pretzels. The trick to doing this is dabbing a tiny bit of light corn syrup with your fingertips on the front side of the pretzel, then dipping it into the sprinkles. Corn syrup is clear and very sticky, making it perfect for getting sprinkles to stay in place! Complete directions are below:
