This month, she chose....
Ugh. Peeps. I don't like Peeps. Sure they're cute and lovable and my sisters love them! But, I'm not a fan. So, this was definitely a challenge.
I thought and thought, and I even came up with some really cute ideas. But, those ideas either required time I didn't have last month or they would have ended up with Peeps that needed to be eaten. I just couldn't bring myself to that. What could I do with Peeps that would put them in a situation where I would still eat them? Then it came to me.
Here they are...unaware of what lies in their future:
I dumped them in a pot with half a stick of butter.
I also added some strawberry marshmallows with them, because I needed more.
I turned on the heat and reduced them to a more basic form.
It wasn't pretty to watch.
And the color was kind of a gross pucey color.
Have you caught on to where I'm going with this yet?
The next step: I added Rice Krispies and stirred it all together.
And of course, at the very end I added chocolate chunks (like the chips only chunks!).
Spread them out in a pan...
...and no one will ever know these used to be those yucky little Peeps!
Even I liked 'em!
*Disclaimer: After reading Sami's post, I almost decided to not post mine since we did pretty much the exact same thing. How embarrassing! But then I started thinking about it. I believe this is a case of great minds think alike, since I did this well before I knew that she did it too. So, I'm posting it because I really want to join in and to support Sami. Also, Peeps turned Rice Krispie treats are awesome.
