I like marshmallows as much as the next gal, but only toasted over a campfire.
Crispy, caramelized outside, gooey inside -- that, I get. What I don't get is eating marshmallows "raw," particularly at this time of year, when they're shaped into baby chicks, coated with Day-Glo coloring and tucked inside Easter baskets. Blech!
Which is why I find the idea of Peeps sushi so appealing.
Devised by the people at SeriousEats.com, "Peepshi" could pass for fish rolls served in a Japanese restaurant. Rice Krispie Treats stand in for the rice, fruit leather replaces the seaweed, and Peeps play the role of protein.
The best part: the project involves beheading those inedible little chicks.
"Don't let silent Peeps screams deter you from your task," the site warns. "You're a professional."Photo courtesy of Serious Eats
