PROPER PEEPS ETIQUETTE

DAY 1

#1. Buy Peeps. Buy assorted colors. (I also bought red ones but they are already gone. I had never seen red peeps before.)


#2. Free peeps from their cellophane prison. They have no thumbs so you cannot bake them a cake with a file in it. You must free the peeps yourself. They will be very grateful. A grateful peep is a happy peep.




#3. Test your peep for freshness. Really...they do not mind at all. This is a new born peep. See how squishy and tender he is? He is not ripe yet. Peeps need maturity.


#4. If you are unsure, use the backhand peep squishy method. Still too fresh. Fresh peeps are poisonous! Peeps are not designed to eat straight out of the package.



#5. Leave your peeps on the counter where they can run, frolic and mature. Do not cover your peeps. Coverage discourages the peeps the and
makes them all emo.





#6. Remember that there is a 15 year old he-man in the house that does not care if peeps have reached their peak of readiness and has not one ounce of patience when it comes to peep aging. Go back and add a warning sign.

#7. Wait.

  1. *snorts* Good advice!!!

    I always buy the yellow Peeps because of their coloring closeness to their animated cousins. But red would be good too. Gonna have to get some now.

  5. Thanks for the AWESOME tutorial! I have always appreciated a mature peep, but hadn't yet mastered the squeezing techniques. I'll go practice today!

  8. I was expecting to see the peeps meet an unfortunate early demise at the hands of you and Rachel, ala the peanut butter and marshmallow bunny incident that she posted.

  9. ALL Peeps is poisonous, in my humble opinion.

    This is too freakin' funny, Mindy!

  13. The Alpha has cut his Peep consumption to one per year -- I buy him that chocolate egg with the Peep inside -- but since he just looked over my shoulder, it occurred to him that we should try roasting Peeps over an open fire this year, which of course will require a larger purchase. Experiment report this weekend.

  15. I was on the same page as Rev Kim - when they "mature" enough they'll be stiff enough to be buried in the peanut butter :0 *Run Peeps Run!!*

    I like the way Flutterby thinks!!

    PS - this is the same aging protocol I use on all marshmallow products unless I am using said products to hold together rice krispies

  16. You made ma LOL at "they get all EMO."
    I prefer Bunny's for some reason. Thank Gawd there will be microwave lessons to follow.
    The gals in my club had never heard of such a thing, so that's what we did for fun. 10 women all gathered round my microwave like little kids.
    Bunny 'Smores totally rawk!!

  18. My kids used to like to blow up regular marshmallows in the microwave; I can only imagine what a Peep would look like after microwaving. I look forward to the tutorial.

  19. Peeps are gross, IMHO. But they might be okay roasted, like Flutterby said, if you have enough chocolate to cover them!
