Holiday Special: Easter Peepshi!

Maybe not as tasty as Sushi, but more fun to make!

A new trend in Easter food experimentation is PeepshiPeeps Sushi.  The premise is simple: instead of fish on rice, use marshmallow Bunny and Chicky Peeps on Rice Krispies, and tie them together with dehydrated fruit strips instead of seaweed.

Last night a friend from CUA and I ventured into the world of Peepshi, and they turned out pretty awesome.  The only ‘issue’ is that they have SO MUCH SUGAR ❤  If you need instructions, there are some on Serious Eats, but we just winged it and they turned out just fine.

Tada!

On a related note, apparently this week is Peeps Week.  The only thing I have figured out that it entails is making everything you can out of Peeps, and then eating them all on Easter Sunday.

Locally, the Washington Post held a Peeps Competition, where creative minds vied for the title of “Best Peeps Diorama”.  A selection of the competing Peeps dioramas will be display at the Artisphere in Arlington from May 7-31.  As it’s only a few blocks from District Geek Central, I’ll try my best to make it out there and report on my findings.  If you can’t make it, allegedly the entire collection can be found on the Washington Post Peeps Page.

    ok I’m liking the peep art
    But… that’s gotta end up killing you in the short term. Something like 2 hours after consumption. Don’t peeps eat you from the inside out if tortured before consumption? Isn’t this sort of like Gremlins? 🙂

      It may be, but if they did kill me I am now a Peeps-Induced Zombie

    Hmmm.. a Pombie? Zombeep?

    I’m sort of hoping there is a little peep sitting in a chair using controls, piloting you like a mech. 🙂
