Easter Peep Popcorn is a colorful and easy treat to make and include in the kids' Easter baskets. The fact that you get to melt down a whole bunch of Peeps is just a bonus.

You can grab everything you need right at your local Kinney Drugs, so you don't even have to fight the crowds at the grocery store - and you can grab all the rest of your Easter needs while you're there, too.

1 cup white chocolate chips
20 peeps - any one color
1 cup of Easter candy - whatever you prefer

1. Pop popcorn according to directions, and spread out on parchment lined tray. You could also cooking spray the inside of a large bowl and place the popcorn in there.
2. Melt butter and peeps in a saucepan, stirring constantly.
3. While the Peeps are melting, melt white chocolate chips in the microwave, in 30 second increments until pour-able.
4. Once chip are melted, and Peeps are smooth and melted, work quickly to pour the Peeps over the popcorn, and then the white chocolate. Mix with a spatula sprayed with cooking spray. Mix in candies.
