Some people will say that Peeps are the best thing to ever happen to Easter candy. So, does that mean that chocolate Peeps
are the best thing to happen to chocolate Easter candy? We certainly think so.
Of course, there are those poor souls out there who think Peeps are only good for microwave tricks; in fact, in our very unofficial survey of 150 random people, more than 55% of respondents felt the same. Oh yes, if you haven’t heard…microwaving a Peep is kind of like…well…watching a bird grow from a baby chick into a chicken--in 45 seconds flat. Microwave it too long, though, and you’ll have a Peeps explosion that is worse to clean than the marshmallow goo from the Rice Krispie treat mixing bowl.
By the way, has anyone ever tried making Rice Kris-Peeps treats? Oh yes. Yes indeed. That version simply uses Peeps instead of marshmallows, and comes out as a supercharged variation (think sugar shock) of the popular treat—a creative alternative to the same old Easter candy!
We love adding Peeps to hot chocolate, and now that chocolate Peeps
have hatched, well, it doesn’t get much better than that, does it?! Okay, maybe it does: White chocolate Martinis with “drunken” Peeps—also known as Peeps-that-have-taken-a-bird-bath-in-some-vodka-for-a-few-hours.
Now, we know that with chocolate Easter Candy comes some very distinct camps. (Think of it like the Thanksgiving turkey eaters—some like dark meat, and others like light meat. We prefer the mashed potatoes!) We have the dark chocolate die-hards, the milk chocolate veterans, and then, out there in the distance, let’s not forget the white chocolate folks (maybe they are the mashed potato people, too).
Thank goodness, we have both dark chocolate Peeps
and milk chocolate Peeps
! We even have dark chocolate and milk chocolate Peepsters—mini chocolate covered Peeps. Perhaps someday there will be mashed potato Peeps? Okay, maybe not, but maybe white chocolate ones…
The entire Peeps posse comes to us from Just Born, the same peep-le who bring us some other very tasty Easter candy: Just Born jelly beans! Beans, birds, bunnies…Just Born and BlairCandy.com do it all!
