A guide to using up Easter’s best selling, yet underappreciated candy
by Alexander Quebec
Love them or hate them (most likely the latter), you are probably swimming in peeps right now.
Your kids, or little siblings and cousins, seem to think even less of them then you probably did when you were a kid, yet, you kinda feel bad throwing them out. You could have an eating contest with them, but after the 20th or so, you’d probably yack 18 of them back up.
Isn’t there a better way to use up those boxes of peeps piled up on your kitchen counter?
CaliPlate wants to help you use up of all those Peeps in a constructive way, who doesn’t mind repurposing things for sweet treats?
- Rice Krispy Treats with Peeps
This is actually a very easy way to use up all of those peeps, since all you need are butter, the peeps and the Rice Krispies. The result is a colorful (and super sweet) version of the famous breakfast cereal treats. Get the kids involved and you can have this done in no time.
- Peeps S’mores
Since they are already marshmallows and you probably would have some Hersey’s (or other chocolate bars) lying around right after Easter, why not make some smore’s over a bonfire. They’re also pretty easy to make too.

For lovers of pizza and dessert, this recipe is sure to satisfy your cravings for both and help you use up all those peeps in the process.
