6 Ways to Reuse Marshmallow Peeps

Once I had that whole Easter Bunny thing figured out as a kid I asked her to not put Peeps or chocolate covered marshmallow eggs in my Easter basket - pretty please - because I don’t like to eat them. Turns out the Easter Bunny didn’t like them either and bought because she thought her kids would like them. Turns out no one in the house liked Peeps. It was a heartfelt confession - a very After School Special moment.

So what to do with all of those left over Easter Peeps if you don’t like them either?

I suppose you could use them to make s’mores.


Of course when I make s’mores I’m more about lighting the marshmallow on fire to please my inner pyromaniac than actually making and eating the confection. A charred marshmallow bunny face peeping out from underneath the graham crackers could lead to some sort of psychosis or inner trauma. Like I don't have enough of that in my life already.

No, my friends, I say when life gives you marshmallow Peeps, pick up a glue gun and get crafty!

You can reenact Great Scenes in Rock and Roll History.


Or reenact scenes from your favorite movies, like Mommie Peepsest,


Soylent Green,
Soylent Green is PEEP-le! PEEP-le!
or Star Wars.

Not much to say here other than that's a whole lotta sci-fi sugar.

Whatever you do, don’t let those little Peepss party unattended. The results could be more than you bargained for.
Yes, it's a Peep show.

OK folks. Spill. Marshmallow Peeps. Love ‘em or hate ‘em?

Not a peep fan. Except maybe when they're in a Soylent Green skit. That's the best use of peeps I've seen yet!

I am not a fan. But I love these pictures!

I used to eat them in high school for a sugar high, lol, but now I don't understand what I ever saw in them. Yuck!

Those usage ideas are hilarious, though.

Sorry, I still like Peeps. My kids love them as well.

I don't like marshmallows so not shock that I don't like peeps. I don't think we ever got peeps on Easter, at least not from our parents.

Love 'em! And I love that annual diorama contest. Be sure and check out this year's entries at the Washington Post. Some people are so clever! I also love putting them in the microwave, which has earned me the "coolest aunt" award from my young nephews. Peeps are so versatile!

Ick on Peeps but wowsers on the art with PEEPs. Now I have to go find the glass cleaner and remove the coffee spatters that resulted from laughing too hard while trying to swallow my cuppa joe.
