Peeps Candy for Easter

Toasted Peeps

Easter is almost here, and that means there are plenty of Peeps on the store shelves. Our boys like to eat Peeps “as is”, but they also like to toast them, like marshmallows.

When perfectly toasted, the sugar coating on the Peep caramelizes.  And the marshmallow insides becomes really gooey, just like in a regular toasted marshmallow.

JD is the best Peep toaster in our family. He can roast a Peep to perfection every time. He treats it like an art form.

Slightly stale Peeps work as well as, if not better than, fresh ones. So stock up on a few boxes when they go on sale and take them on your next campout. Scouts of all ages enjoy them.

    We did the Peeps this weekend at a campout and they were a huge success! Even people who said they don’t like Peeps – they enjoyed them toasted. Thanks for the tip!
