Peeps Sunflower Cake

Peeps Sunflower Cake

This is a super easy and impressive dessert for Easter, or even just for Spring! The yellow peeps make eye-catching flower petals, and the chocolate chips, carefully placed in a circular pattern, resemble the seeds in the middle of a sunflower. Not only is it fun for kids, or anyone, to enjoy, but it is also delicious!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes + cooling
Makes: 12 servings


1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
2 cans (16 oz. each) chocolate frosting
19 to 20 yellow Peeps candies
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions, using two parchment paper-lined and greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to wire racks; remove paper. Cool completely.
  2. If cake layers have rounded tops, trim with a long serrated knife to make level. Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake.
  3. For petals, arrange Peeps around edge of cake, curving slightly and being careful not to separate chicks. For sunflower seeds, arrange chocolate chips in center of cake.
