Have leftover Easter candy?
If you are looking for a fun idea to keep the kids entertained while quarantined that also uses up your leftover Easter candy, Hip2Save reader, Jennifer came up with a brilliant idea. Read her idea below and then grab your Peeps (candy and kids 😂), a few skewers, and get roasting! 🔥
“Roasting leftover Peeps over an open fire is just morbid enough to get my kids attention and absolutely delicious! I don’t like Peeps unless they are roasted over a campfire 🔥.
The outside gets a nice caramelized flavor like crème brûlée and the inside is gooey and delicious. I don’t enjoy regular Peeps. Makes me think of eating a marshmallow with beach sand on it, lol.
This is also a great quarantine activity. We have also been experimenting with other Easter candies over a open fire such as Starbursts and chocolate covered marshmallow eggs. The possibilities are endless!”
Peeps that taste like crème brûlée?
I’m not a huge fan of Peeps either 😝, but I LOVE crème brûlée and can’t wait to try this simple hack! 😋 Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing this fun and tasty treat with us!
