Easter Peeps

Easter Peeps – How to cook a Peep!! Have you ever wondered about this? I haven’t really… but my husband has!! LOL!! He thinks it’s hilarious to see Easter Peeps be cooked in a variety of ways – so he decided to go for it and try it himself!! Anyone else have about a zillion peeps leftover right now?

Do you know the history behind Easter Peeps?

Easter Peeps History

Peeps are marshmallow candies sold in the United States and Canada that are shaped into chicks, bunnies, and other animals. There are also different shapes used for various holidays. Peeps are produced by Just Born, a candy manufacturer founded in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, by Russian immigrant Sam Born (1891-1959). In 1953 Just Born acquired the Rodda Candy Company and its marshmallow chick line, and replaced the painstaking process of hand-forming the chicks with mass production.

Fun Facts for Easter Peeps:

But when Easter weekend is over and the Peeps numbers are counted, the former are clearly in the majority. More than 700 million Marshmallow Peeps are consumed every year in the United States (and you can bet the vast majority of those are being consumed in the month of April). Apr 14, 2017

Why are they named Easter Peeps?

The yellow chicks were the original form of the candy — hence their name — but then the company introduced other colors and, eventually, the myriad shapes in which they are now produced.

We have about 40 packages left! It’s CRAZY! They’re everywhere!

My husband thought it would fun to show how to cook a peep. He had a blast making this video!!  He was able to get rid of 5 of them! Easter Peeps are so much fun for kids during the Easter holiday to have. My kids love them and think they are so good to eat!! I have loved seeing them get so excited about these during the holidays!

I’m hoping he can come up with 321 more ways to cook them! 😉
