Y'all, it's officially time to get out your Easter baskets and start planning those Easter egg hunts. I can hardly believe it. But let's be honest, what makes Easter extra fun and delicious is its most famous fluffy staple. You know those little brightly colored animal-shaped marshmallows known as Peeps. Those sugary little bunnies and chicks are cute, but not everyone is a fan. And even if you are, how many marshmallows can you honestly eat? To avoid them sitting on your counter until Halloween, here are some things to do with leftover peeps because there's always way more than we can handle.
I've searched far and wide and have come up with all kinds of creative ways to use that over-abundance of Peeps. It turns out that you can actually use your Peeps for way more than just snacking. (Or doorstops when they get hard enough.) There are all kinds of kid-friendly marshmallow science experiments and even decorative crafts to bring a colorful Easter and spring vibe into your home. There are even recipes for Peep martinis (yes, please) and milkshakes that will keep both parents and kids happy — and hyper. But, you can always go with some edible play dough, too. Basically, these are majorly versatile, and Peeps don't have to go to waste.
