I fucking love Peeps. As soon as I see Peeps lining the shelves at the grocery store, I know Easter is right around the corner. As I’ve become a grown-up, I fully acknowledge that Peeps are absolutely disgusting. But the fact that they are so rare and elusive (except for the obvs Peeps-on-Halloween sacrilege) makes them magically delicious in the spring season.
Besides the played out Peep in the microwave trick, there are many, many amazing things that you can do with this overly sugary goodness. Instead of serving Peeps the boring way for Easter—crammed into a basket full of other goodies—you can use these Peep-tastic tutorials and recipes to take Peeps to the next level.
