Frozen Peeps: A Cure For What Ails Me

I'm sick. I was hoping it was just an allergy attack yesterday, but no, it wasn't. Ugh. I'm not sure if I'll be able to go into work or not tomorrow. I'm going to wait and see how I am in the morning. I'm really bummed that I was too ill to go to the Bazaar Bizarre with a couple of friends this afternoon. I was really looking foward to it.

One bright spot in my weekend has been the discovery of the joy of frozen Peeps! I was clued in by a couple of co-workers last week, so I marched out and got some festive Peeps (snowmen and Christmas trees!) and stuck them in the freezer. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the results are wonderful.

Freezing the Peeps is a way to get the stale Peep consistency, but much faster. You get a somewhat crunchy outer layer and a soft, but not as gooey, inner layer. Yumtastic!

I'm going to have some chicken soup and go back to bed. I just can't seem to get enough sleep.

P.S. Possibly only one of my readers knows about this, but the "lost" PSP was found today...by me. We were about to write it off as gone though. I'm glad we found it, but now I have to think of something to buy him for the holidays instead of just a replacement!

As I was wandering the toy aisles the other day, I saw that you can buy your own Peep maker. I didn't see what kind of molds were available or if you could buy different ones, but it sounds like fun.

Yeah, I hear they have things called cookie sheets and bread pans too and some people actually use those to make their own cookies and bread!

I'm one who will buy it if I can, not make it. Laziness is only part of the equation. Retardation with cooking ingredients is the other!

You can microwave Peeps, too.

you know, i have attempted making marshmallows...i'm betting i could make you something peep-like...hmmm. (glad you found that thing!)

I've never microwaved them, but I have toasted them over the open flame on my gas stove. The melt very quickly though!

Ah, frozen Peep over the open flame of the stove works great! It doesn't melt as quickly and the sugary outside gets nice and crispy.

I will have to let my mother in law know about frozen peeps. She loves peeps. She will only eat them stale...maybe she would like this way too.
