V.I.Peeps: Delicious Ways to Transform the Marshmallow Candy
How to give a batch of chocolate chip cookies some colorful personality? Add a marshmallow bunny to the dough and bake!
Pulling a rabbit out of a hat never tasted so delicious. All you need to create these treats are sandwich cookies, marshmallows, candy melts, Airhead candies (for that colorful striping) and, of course, Peeps.
You don’t need a campfire to make this twist on a classic – just graham crackers, a chocolate bar and few squished Peeps. Stick in the microwave and soften to melty goodness.
Now this is how to jazz up a basic brownie: Hayley Parker of the Domestic Rebel blog added Peeps and MampMs for a double-textured dessert.
If you run out of chocolate syrup or caramel, look no further than your candy stash for an ice cream topping. Melt Peeps on the stovetop or in the microwave and spoon over your favorite frozen treat.
A graham-cracker crust is filled with melted Peeps and whipped heavy cream, then chilled overnight. Breakfast, anyone?
Whipping up a batch of pastel popcorn is a great way to welcome spring. And it’s so easy to make: Just put Peeps and butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until it’s all melted. Pour over freshly popped kernels and be prepared for sticky fingers!
RICE CEREAL TREATS
Kerry from the blog Bakergirl admits there's nothing fussy about these treats: "Sometimes baking is simple. Sometimes it's not even baking at all… it's just melting bright, colorful, sugary marshmallows and stirring in crispy cereal." Sounds good to us.
You'll want to watch as the chick first floats on the cocoa's steamy surface then gradually melts into marshmallow oblivion. What a sweet way to warm up on a chilly day!
