For the Love of Peeps

Can you tell I just love Peeps from the photo I am using as my blog header? I will keep the Peeps marshmallow candy package as my blog header until Easter.  Just a little tribute to my favorite Easter candy. I guess you either love Peeps or hate them. My sons never cared for them, so sad for them. :-)

Last March, I posted a recipe that I received in an email from Taste of Home magazine. The recipe and photo were for a cute Peeps sunflower cake . Are you are Peeps lover? My favorite colors are white or yellow. I think the other colors leave a faint after taste in your mouth. Although I saw some light orange Peeps in the store the other day, I might have to give those a try.

Last week on the TV Food Network show, Kid in a Candy Store,  a segment was done on the Peeps store, and on Unwrapped,  there was a segment at the Peeps factory in Pennsylvania on how Peeps were made. I found the shows interesting, and of course the Just Born company who produce Peeps  have a website marshmallow peeps if you care to look.

Did you know that there is a Peeps cookbook?  I saw one is A C Moore and briefly flipped thru the pages. Cute ways to use Peeps to decorate cakes and cupcakes.
Personally, I love Peeps when the are very stale and hard as a rock. To speed up the process, I tear open the package to let the air get at the marshmallow chicks and bunnies. Yum!!!! So, I have to ask...Have you had your Peep today? :-)
