Roasted Peeps

I took my Peeps to the hot dog roast and roasted them up. My brother threatened to call PETA. He said it was animal cruelty.

Can you say YUM!!!!

The sugar caramelizes on the outside and the mallow melts on the inside. It's all crispy crunchy on the outside and soft and melty on the inside. BUT you have to do this over very LOW coals and you can't have it over them very long. Peeps roast MUCH faster than regular mallows. I'll so be buying Peeps in the stores so I can roast them from here on out.

Oh and I tried to convince Jillian that they tasted yucky and she didn't want to try them but she didn't believe me. She loved them. What can I say? The girl has good taste.

I put Peeps in my kids baskets this year for the first time. None of them liked them. Not a single one. I don't understand why either. They'll eat regular marshmallows like they're going out of style, but cover them in sugar and they won't touch them.

I don't like Peeps, but I was actually wondering if this would be a good thing to do with the ones I have. Good to know it works!
