“Eat a Peep”
March 5, 2013 § 19 Comments
It’s Easter time, the Peeps have hatched. They are everywhere I look and there are many imposters …purple & green, pink & blue..have you ever in your life seen anything other than a yellow chick? Rabbit Peeps? Really! Peeps are Peeps. That’s it. Last word.
This year I played around and came up with this simple s’mores idea using Peeps. Here is what you will need:
A package of Peeps, Chocolate Graham Crackers, Semisweet or Bittersweet Baking Chocolate
1. Turn on oven Broiler. Lay an even number of Chocolate Graham Cracker squares out on baking sheets. Top half of squares with a piece of Chocolate & the other half with a Peep laying on its side.
2. Set rack at the lowest part of the oven & place baking sheet in oven. Leave for about 5-7 minutes or until Peeps are puffy and chocolate is melted. Remove pan from oven. “Sandwich” Peeps & chocolate covered graham crackers together pressing gently.
There are many ways to eat a Peep. One of my favorites is the “air-dried crunchy Peep”. You just let them sit around uncovered, out of their packaging, for a few days. This adds a layer of crunch right before you get to the soft marshmallow insides. Try it.
They are also delicious floating & melting on a cup of steamy hot cocoa. This will make you smile and if you have children or know any children then do this for them and they will smile.
Peeps like to decorate the tops of cupcakes as well.
What is your favorite way to eat a Peep? Do you eat imposter Peeps? Halloween & Christmas Peeps! Did you know that there are 30,900,000 results if you Google Peeps? Why do you think companies take a good idea, a special treat idea that you looked forward to once a year and made versions for all year long? If you can get something all the time is it special anymore?
Let me know what you think. Meanwhile, Eat a Peep.
