The Last Peep Show

That's IT. I am SO done.
If I see ONE.MORE.PEEP. in this house, leftover from Easter I'm liable to...EAT IT!


I must rid my house of these naughty sugary treats that whisper my name when I'm not even hungry!

So here's what's on the agenda for today:


15 peeps (double this recipe if you have more to get rid of)
3 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
1 1/2 tbsp butter

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then the peeps (take off the burner just as they begin to meld together). Fold in the cereal and press into a pan.

**People who've made this recipe encourage you to eat them within a day or when warm, because they tends to harden more quickly than the regular recipe.

Did you hear that???? It's the peeps of hundreds frighten candy chicks. :)

That is hilarious. I'm with you on the sugar in the house. I have so much chocolate (of course, not a bad thing, but I'm trying to lose weight here). Great idea with the rice Krispie treats.

Stina, LOL!!!

Maddy said...

Lol! This reminds me, I negelected to check out the Washington Post Peep to do that ASAP!

That picture was HILARIOUS. Love it. But when it comes to Peeps, I prefer to stick them in a microwave and have a Peep war. If you've never done this, I won't spoil it, but you should definitely give it a try.

All of our candy is already gone.I am not sure how it happened...not sure how a half-gallon container of Starburst jelly beans got devoured in three days...but they are gone, baby, gone!

I am SO on the same page as you. The peeps are going to kill me.

Best picture ever.

Also, I have never thought of turning Peeps into rice crispy treats. I don't know how I've never thought of this. It's probably so genius it's beyond me. Thank you for opening my eyes.

Christina Lee said...

Maddy, those contest are so cool!

Ha good luck with your riddance plan. My weakness are those frosted animal cracker/cookie things. A bad will disappear in record time here.

Next year I'm thinking about making Peep Sushi. Also I like to roast mine over a candle and make something I've been calling Peeps Brûlée. Mostly I use mine to make a diorama.

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog last week. I have been looking for your blog link. (Now I am following you on twitter @TinaLaneBlogs so it should be easier to keep track.)

Well, I finally published my debut novel. Can you believe it???
