Peeps: Recipes and Crafts to Make with Your Favorite Marshmallow Treat

Peeps: Recipes and Crafts to Make with Your Favorite Marshmallow TreatPeeps are deceptively simple looking, with their fluffy interiors and brightly colored sugary coatings. At first glance, it doesn’t seem as though there is much more that you could do with a little marshmallow chicken or bunny other than eat it. It turns out that there is a lot more that you can do with Peeps and Peeps: Recipes and Crafts to Make with Your Favorite Marshmallow Treat is pretty much dedicated to the subject.

The book is very lighthearted and has a lot of fun with its subject. Examples of Peeps recipes include Peeps Affogato (peep with espresso shot poured over it), Peeps Fondue and Peep-sicles. Each recipe is paired with a picture, so there are lots of colorful visuals to go along with the text. Following the recipes, there is a section on Peep crafts, which includes Peep Chopstick Holders and Peep centerpieces. The Peeps are easy to work with on all counts and add a festive (and sugary) touch to everything they come in contact with.

Now, this book isn’t going to be a hit with someone who isn’t a fan of the marshmallow chicks and bunnies, but anyone who does like Peeps will get a kick out of it. It is also a cute seasonal gift for kids as long as you don’t mind them playing with their food for a while before they eat it!

  1. This is a great find, I love Peeps! Plus they make different shapes and flavors for each holiday (not just Easter anymore) so they’re pretty much available year-round.

  2. Peeps bring me back to my childhood and I absolutely love them. What a great book.

  3. I loved them growing up, but I bought some today and they’re too sweet for me now. They are as cute as can be though. I may have to find something crafty to do with the rest of the pack.

  4. How adorable! My favorite thing to do with Peeps is to place them in the microwave for about 15 seconds, then let them sit for about 5! They get warm and crunchy.

  5. Great find…my kids would love this!
