Easter is Sunday, and there is going to be plenty of candy. So much candy. Peep overload.
If you’re tired of eating your Cadbury Eggs “raw” and your Peeps out of the box, don’t fret. I have a few twists for you and your epicurean friends.
Peepshi – Peeps sushi. No I’m not joking. Using a base of Rice Krispies Serious Eats turned the sugar marshmallow chicks and bunnies into your favorite sushi items. I’d serve these to my friends just to see the reaction on their faces. Of course, that would mean I wouldn’t be able to eat all the Peeps before they hit the table :-/
Deviled Cadbury Eggs – A new take on what is usually the day after Easter favorite in my house (so many eggs!!!) Serious Eats turned the sugar filled Cadbury Chocolate Egg into deviled eggs. How cool! To make sure the egg holds up, place it in the freezer for about an hour before starting.
1 Unwrap your first Cadbury Creme Egg. Give it a long, hard look and ask if it is ready to meet its destiny.
2 Using your very sharp knife, gently slice the egg in half lengthwise, following the seam that keeps the two egg halves together. The egg should separate into two separate halves fairly easily; each will have a dollop of fondant inside. Leave the fondant inside of the egg halves.
3 Using a pastry bag fitted with a star tip, pipe yellow buttercream in a spiral so that it covers the entire exposed inside of each egg half (directly on top of the fondant). You’ll use about 1-2 teaspoons’ worth of frosting per egg.
4 Garnish with red sprinkles to mimic the look of paprika.
5 Repeat with the remaining egg halves. [From Serious Eats]
Why not try one of these with your friends. Or do it together at brunch as an activity. I know plenty of friends that would want to slice those happy Peeps into pieces.
