How do you eat your Easter Marshmallow Peeps?

Where would Easter candy be without Peeps? Nearly everyone’s Easter basket contains a package of these sugar-coated marshmallow fluff pieces.

As a child, I never liked Peeps, but year after year they appeared along with plastic eggs and a big chocolate rabbit.

I must be in a minority because an astonishing number of Peeps chicks and bunnies are eaten at Easter--enough to more than circle the Earth’s circumference. Peeps are the best selling non-chocolate Easter candy.

Some people eat the candy frozen or stale- which means rock hard. Others like to stretch them apart or bite off their heads. My daughter and I like to microwave Peeps and watch them grow! They expand like the marshmallow man in the Ghostbusters movie and make a gooey mess.

Have fun with your Peeps and Happy Easter.
