It’s that time of year again. The time when we celebrate the most sacred of Christian holidays by covering bird shaped marshmallows with yellow sugar. (No, I do not count any other holiday theme, color, shape, etc. as a real Peep.)
Did you know that Peeps have their own website? They do. It’s www.marshmallowpeeps.com.
And, as I was infinitely curious about what could be said about this delectable manna from Heaven, I decided to visit that website.
They have recipes.
Lots and lots of recipes.
I was drooling over all the Peeps recipes. Like this one:
Isn’t that the cutest thing you ever saw? It’s called Blue Raspberry Sparkle. Really, there could be nothing better than Peeps and Jello. In fact, my motto has always been, “There’s nothing that can’t be improved upon by adding Peeps and/or Jello.” True story.
But then I found this little gem.
It’s called Peeps Yum Yum Platter. Or as I like to call it … Attack of the Homicidal Bunnies.
Now I suppose it is meant to resemble Sushi. But you know what immediately sprang to my mind? The old Bugs Bunny cartoons where one of them gets tied to the railroad tracks as the train is coming. I just keep waiting for a train whistle.
I mean sushi is bad enough. But there’s something completely wrong about homicidal bunny marshmallows. It would be like if Santa Claus showed up to your house with a machete.
