Maybe it’s just me, but I love Peeps. However, I almost always buy too many of them, and then end up staring sadly at a poor pile of stale marshmallows.
Not this year.
This year, I used my leftover peeps to make rice krispie treats. Don’t judge me – I was out of marshmallows. Warning: this gets a little gruesome as the peeps melt and their eyes fall out, so not necessarily the most kid friendly recipe.
Don’t believe me? Watch:
