|Peeps Ala Mode? Yes. Please.|
The good Peeps at Peeps thought they'd challenge an Underachiever to a craft idea with these fun little marshmallow characters. Maybe they thought it would be good to show frazzled, busy, crazed moms how easy and inexpensive it is to use Peeps for Easter/Spring decorations - they probably thought they'd use a Tag line So Easy Even an Underachiever Can Do It. If you've seen my Pinterest board then you'll know what kind of hot mess I really am with crafts - I can't even keep my boards straight - I've got my cut out cookies (my only baking talent) with my ecards I made, and my movie quotes mixed in with memes. I'm a mess. So - let me be the first to say - if I can do something fun with Peeps - so can you.
OK - - so here's the thing. Peeps has the cutest little video about 2 brothers - and of course, they remind me of my 2 littlest boys...and they'll remind you of something too...(we'll get to that in a minute). You know I'm a huge movie buff so if you are too, I bet you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. So watch this video and then tell me what movie comes to mind - if you're a real movie buff, you won't cheat and scroll past the video...right?
OK so...what movie came to mind when this little guy named off all of the ways to use Peeps?
Yup...you're right. Forrest Gump....when Bubba told Forrest all the ways to make Shrimp.
Bubba: Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.

I started to Google/Pinterest Search the following to see if my clever ideas were already out there..
Peeptini? - DONE BEFORE.
Centerpeeps? (Centerpiece made of peeps) DONE.
Shit. It's all been done. Now I really have to dig deep.
Peeptini? (Martini w/ Peeps) - done.
Peepsicles? (Frozen Peeps) - done and DONE!
Rice Kripeep Treats? DONE - WHAT THE HELL AM I GONNA DO??
And then...it hit me. My girlfriend Heather just opened the magnificent, delicious, mouthwatering YoBite! shop in Chelmsford, Mass and I've been dying to get down there with the boys to try it out. Yobite has 12 yogurt flavors and more than 50 toppings - so it would be the perfect place for me to make something that has not (not that I know of) been done before - and I wouldn't even have to dirty my kitchen!!! (BONUS!)..ready? Drumroll...
|How much fun will your kids have making these!!!??|
Peepster Sundaes! (Instead of Easter Sundays...get it??)
SOOO easy, even an Underachiever can make them. Ok, so I'm not a poster girl for something difficult but whatever - I'll take it! The COLORS - -ohhh the colors make this so easy and fun..toasted coconut for the nest? Not a fan of coconut, no worries - with your toppings you can do anything with these little doobies!
These are all made with YOBITE! (SQUEEEEE..IT'S SO GOOD..IF YOU LIVE ANYWHERE NEAR CHELMSFORD - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???)!
