Peeps sushi

Peeps sushiI 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."

Absolutely adorable!

I want to go to there...

Better than pig suhi.

I was going to recommend something on the WaPo's peeps diarama contest but then I realized the absurdity of such a suggestion. They have a contest every year and there are some amazing ones.

LV, I am sooo with you on the raw marshmallow thing. The only exception is stale Peeps. For some reason I like those. Kinda like the crunchy marshmallows in the Lucky Charms cereal...

You know it's hard out here for a peep
When he tryin to get this money for the lent
For the jellybeans and chocklate bunny spent
Because a whole lot of chickies talkin cheep
Will have a whole lot of chickies talkin cheep.

Wow. Laura Lee should get some kind of medal for that comment. It's a deft def parody of the song "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" from the movie Hustle and Flow. I'm in awe.

I would have guessed that the intersection of Laura Lee and the Three 6 Mafia would be the null set but here we go

Enjoy

Peeps are the Candy Corn of Easter. Both are just nasty holiday candies that people buy out of tradition not taste.

I'm glad to see you're keeping Elizabeth's hatred of peeps alive on the blog.

Laura Lee rocks!!!
