How to Make Homemade Peeps

I must confess, I am not really a fan of marshmallows, and I really don’t like Peeps. I know, I know such blasphemy! With Easter around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to try and make  Homemade Peeps.  Evan loves Peeps, so I think we will be trying them.

If you are feeling up to trying Homemade Marshmellow Peeps – here are a few ideas:

  • I used to love Peeps as a girl. Thanks for sharing!

  • These are so cute!

    I don’t do Peeps, or marshmallow anything, because I’m a vegetarian. If I could do these with veggie marshmallow, I’d give it a try, since I haven’t eaten them in forever.

    BTW, if you don’t know why vegetarians don’t eat marshmallow, you’re better off not knowing.

  • my husband brought me home a chocolate covered peep and it was awesome..nothing like a normal peep it was just a soft marshmellow inside.

    I highly dislike Peeps also and I’m from the Lehigh Valley…argh! But, my kids like them. Not enough for me to buy more than one small package of them for their baskets, but they like them.
