Cooking With PEEPS

With Easter around the corner, PEEPS are all over!  Here are some fun ways to "cook" with Peeps.

Ingredients:  Peeps Chicks or Bunnies

Preheat oven to 300° F
Place as many Peeps as desired onto cookie sheets, approx. 3 inches apart.  Chicks should be upright, Bunnies on their back
Bake for 4 minutes, or until warm and puffy
Remove from oven and serve immediately

Ingredients:  Peeps Chicks or Bunnies, 1 tbsp. cooking oil

Pour oil into a small skillet and place over high heat
When oil is hot, drop in Peeps
Cook bottoms of Peeps for several minutes or until Peeps are tender and caramelized
Depending on carmelization desired, you can fry Peeps on one or all sides
Remove from skillet  
Wait a few minutes before serving to allow caramel to develop crunchiness

And, don't forget -- PEEPS are fab right out of the package!!  Enjoy!!!
