These Peeps Popcorn Balls are a Perfect Easter Treat! They are super easy to make and they are the perfect combination of sweet and salty! Yum.

Thankfully I am not hosting Easter dinner at my house this year. Since I did the last holiday (Christmas), my sister is having this one at her house. Score! Of course I can’t show up to her house empty handed, so I have been experimenting with different desserts to bring with me. I came up with these Peeps Popcorn Balls and they are PERFECT. They are just the right combination of sweet and salty and I know everyone is going to love them. And if they don’t, that’s ok – I will eat them all myself!
