Peeps® Capture the Screen in Allrecipes’ Easter Videos

Anyone for a Peeps® cocktail? Who knew the rainbow-colored marshmallow treats could be used as ingredients? A couple of clever Allrecipes home cooks, that’s who. Allrecipes’ video team captured their clever ideas for using the sweet fluffs—which appear in stores like migrating flocks as soon as Easter is on the calendar— in two fun DIY Easter videos released on Allrecipes’ YouTube channel. The recipe featuring eggshell cupcakes (baked right in the egg shell) topped with hatching Peeps even made NBC’s TODAY Show on Tuesday!

Who doesn’t love an ooey-gooey crunchy, cheesy chicken casserole?  Start with cheese-flavored tortilla chips as the bottom layer, top with cheese, salsa, soups, and chicken. Bake and indulge!

The Week’s Top Search Terms

For obvious reasons, Easter and Passover are the primary recipe search topic for home cooks. With Easter ranking as the year’s third largest cooking holiday, figuring out what to serve for the Sunday feast is essential. Passover also has significant traditional dishes, which are an important part of this holiday. The fastest growing week-over-week search terms driving traffic to the site reflect this, as well as spring cravings for chocolate cake.

Other fast growing search terms driving traffic to the site included lobster tail recipe, Easter recipes, and Passover recipes.
The fastest growing week-over-week internal search terms follow the same pattern, and include Passover, Easter, French dip, and grilled pork chops.

What special dishes will you be cooking for Easter or Passover?
