Easter Peep-Za

When brainstorming Peeps ideas this year, I came up with some pretty good ones that were shot down: Peeps Sweet Potato Casserole. Peeps-Jello Salad. Twice-Baked Peep-Topped Sweet Potatoes. Peeps Ambrosia. The idea that did make the cut: Peep-Za.

Peeps on a pizza, well that’s just gross. But Peeps on a pizza-like dessert — that is amazing. To make a Peep-Za, you just need a cookie crust, some frosting and the contents of your Easter basket: Peeps and M&Ms or whatever candy you like best.

For the crust, I like Cookie Monster’s sugar cookie recipe because he’s the most credible source for cookies I know, but you can take a shortcut and use store-bought sugar cookie dough. Same goes for the frosting; use store-bought if you don’t have time to make homemade frosting.

Sifted: Peeps Edition

"A Peep of Thrones" by The Epi-Log

5 Hot Links We’re Loving:

  1. Peeps take on a comical dark side in theA Peep of Thrones.” No offense to the HBO original Game of Thrones, but we prefer The Epi-Log’s peeptacular rendition.
  2. Inside the Marshmallow-Chick Factory: It only takes 6 minutes to create the beady-eyed Easter icons, start to finish. “But for such an innocent, marshmallow-and-sugar pastel candy, the Peep is surprisingly polarizing.” — NYT Magazine
  3. Peeps and crushed Easter candy turns white chocolate into a no-fuss Easter bark recipe. We love the pretty pastels.
  4. Not a fan of the sugary mallows? These recipes for rocky road blondies and lemon meringue tarts might change your mind.
  5. It doesn’t get much easier (or as tasty) than Easter fondue. Peeps pair perfectly.
