PEEPS® Easter Bunny Cupcakes

Decorate confetti cupcakes with coconut grass, plastic eggs, and PEEPS® Brand Marshmallow Bunnies to make this adorably tasty Easter bunny cupcake dessert!

Hands On:30 | Total: 60 | Makes: 24 servings (1 cupcake each)


  • 1 pkg (15.25 oz each) Duncan Hines® Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 5 to 7 drops green food coloring
  • 1 container (16 oz each) Duncan Hines® Creamy Vanilla Frosting
  • 24 PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunnies, assorted colors

24 clean plastic Easter eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and place liners in 24 muffin cups.
  2. Beat cake mix, milk, eggs, and oil or butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Divide batter into muffin cups. Bake 16 to 19 minutes, until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, dip each PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunny into frosting to stick into the inside of each Easter egg. Reserve.
  4. Place coconut and food coloring in a large bowl and stir until coconut is thoroughly coated and evenly green. Add additional food coloring if necessary to reach desired color. Set aside.
  5. Frost cooled cupcakes evenly with frosting. Using your fingers, build green coconut up around edges of each cupcake top to create a ring and nestle an Easter egg with a PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunny into the center of each. Use any leftover coconut grass to decorate around Easter bunny cupcakes on serving tray.
