On Wednesday I was talking to Nikkiand KT (still blog-less 🙂 ) I told them I made marshmallow for my Cupcake Hero entry. They both mentioned that I should make peeps with the marshmallows. I almost have peeps already, I just need to cut them into cute shapes and sprinkle with sugar, why not!
Meet the Peeps.
First up we have Little Bunny Peep:
Next, Little Chickie Peep:
And lastly, we have Little Bo Peep’s Peep:
Decorating the peeps were definitely a challenge. Some may even call it a peeps-capade. I had to figure out how to make the details on the peeps. Melted chocolate of course! So I grabbed a ziploc baggie and melted some chips. Everything was great in the world. I was making record time placing the little eyes on the chickies, but oh no, wait…. what happened!
Yes, it was a gory sight. These poor little chickies lost their lives due to a faulty ziploc bag. (Note to self, don’t use Ziploc baggies to decorate with. They will have a blowout at a very inconvenient time.) So, me being the brillant person that I am (stop laughing) I decided to use my fancy decorating bags. I inserted the coupler, put in the chips, microwaved for 1 minute. I put on my Size 2 tip and began piping. Success is mine once again! Ouch, ouch crap! What is on this bag! Shoot, I melted the bag along with the chocolate. Oh well, it isn’t anything a little tape won’t cover.
All in all, it was a great success. They are sooooo much better than store bought peeps too. Delicious!
(Yes mom, you will finally get to taste my homemade marshmallows on Easter. 🙂 )
