I gave up sweeties for Lent, and that was tough. My sisters were both aghast that my first selection wasn't a chocolate bunny, but a bright yellow Peep. In honour of the end of Lent, I made myself one of my Easter faves: Peeps Bruleé. This simple but elegant fare is such fun for all!
1. Take one box of Peeps (yellow chicks preferred, but any colour and shape will do)
2. Stick a fork into one Peep.
3. Roast over gas flame.
4. Wait until sugar is carmelized and marshmallow is gooey.
The alternative method is to use your little blow torch for this. Beware of the molten sugar though.
There are two camps of Peeps people: those who like them fresh from the box and those who prefer to let them sit and age a bit and become crusty. You can stick them into the microwave and let them melt, which is good for a few seconds of entertainment. Or you can try this:
Happy Easter to all my Peeps!
