Peeps

I did a DC search and found a few ideas for these little critters...but no recent entries. I bought a package of yellow Peeps - couldn't resist - but now really don't know what to do with them. I saw on the Peeps website that someone used them to make s'mores Roasting Peeps???

That actually sounds really good!

I like them when they get stale.

Peeps are so popular this year. I was at a store where they had the pink and yellow ones and also blue, green, and purple. I love eating Peeps at Easter. They are just a fun Easter candy and make a pretty decoration.
They would look pretty on a fruit tray or bread tray to give it some color. But melted between two squares of graham cracker with chocolate and it would look like "Road Kill". LOL

I've always just eaten as they are purple, pink, yellow, blue, whatever. I'm not keen on them, but my daughter likes them.

They're so much better that way! Whenever I have peeps, I immediately cut slits in the plastic packaging and detach them from each other. That way the air gets to them pretty quickly and they get that hardish chewyish texture that's so good.

. . . and most people I know think I'm nuts, but I don't care.
