Peepshi = Peeps + Sushi

Peepshi

Don’t let the kids have all the fun this Easter. Grown ups need a little marshmallow-sugar- encrusted fun too. The solution to this dilemma : Peepshi. and it will leave you with the most sophisticated sugar high yet.

I was introduced to the Peepshi craze by my neighbor, JennĀ , who was whipping up a batch of these adorable and delicious treats earlier this week. Both the ingredient list and process are fairly simple. I advise 2 things before beginging: 1) have a scrap bowl ready otherwise you will find yourself devouring little bits of peep that lead to a BIG sugar high before the end is near. 2) Invite a friend because everything is more fun with a friend!

peepshi ingredients

To get started all you will need:

  • a Pizza Cuter
  • Fruit by the Foot
  • Peeps, in bunny or chicks form (or both! )
  • a sheet of Pre-made Rice Krispies. Its much easier to make once the marshmallow has set up a little at room temperature.

Start out by laying a length of Fruit by the Foot onto the Sheet of Rice Krispies

Ta-Da – You just made Peepshi! We got a little creative and made several varieties. Have fun with it and don’t forget to add chopsticks and a small dish of chocolate for a soy sauce effect.
