Peeps a new way

Tis the season for peeps, and I am ready to stock up on those babies.

About 4 years ago I found a new way to enjoy Peeps. You roast them over the fire. I love the way the sugar coating gets all crunchy and the center all gooey. A few people have told me that it just seems wrong to do that to Peeps, but it makes perfect sense to me. Then again I am not fond of eating "raw" marshmallows.

It all happened when my husband and I when to get some food for a camping trip one fall. It was just before Halloween and I saw some pumpkin, and cat shaped Peeps. I just stopped and thought why not, they are marshmallows after all, so I grabbed a couple boxes. I did have to explain to my husband what the Peeps were for. In his defense, there are not many people that would think of roasting them. Many people I have told this to look at my like I discovered this new wonder. Often they mutter "I have to try that." That or I get looks like I've lost my mind.

As the phrase goes though "Don't knock it till you try it."
