One of the best things about this time of year is the anticipation of Marshmallow Peeps for Easter. This morning, one of my Twitter followers sent me a link to a great Buzzfeed post full of Peeps recipes. The official Peeps website now has a section for recipes too.
My favorite recipes in the Buzzfeed article include Peeps race cars made from snack cakes, Peeps brownie bars and Peeps S’mores. Flame-roasted Peeps are especially good. Three years ago, I toasted Peeps on my gas range after reading about Peeps brûlée.
The folks at Marshmallow Peeps created a commercial that mentions several uses for the confection, in a style that should remind you of Benjamin Buford “Bubba” Blue from the film “Forrest Gump.”
