We made Peepshi for dessert on Easter Sunday. We really enjoyed making and eating it. We thought this might be a fun thing for families to do together, but in retrospect it is probably a little bit hard for younger kids to do. We would suggest this for families with older kids. It gets a little bit messy and sticky , but it is a lot of fun to do and it turns our really cute! One change that Rob decided to make was he added nerds to the tops of some of the rolls to make it look like roe (fish eggs). Over all we give this 4 out of 5 stars because it was fun to make, not too difficult for adults and older children and it tasted good.
- 6 Peeps per roll, 1 Peep per handroll, 1 Peep per nigiri
- 1 box of Rice Krispies Treats
- 1 box of Fruit by the Foot
- Slice off six 3/16th inch slices lengthwise from a Rice Krispies Treat (Please don't kill yourself trying to get exactly 3/16 inches. There are more important things to worry about, like beheading Peeps!).
- Execute six Peeps of your color choice by decapitation. Cut off more neck than you think is appropriate. If necessary, you can trim off more later.
- Portion out a length of Fruit by the Foot slightly longer than the Rice Krispies Treat slice.
- Flatten and elongate the Rice Krispies Treat slice slightly and shape it into a hollow circle. It's okay if it breaks, just mold it back together again.
- Take a Peep head and tuck it into the top of the hollow Rice Krispies treat cylinder. Use a toothpick or tip of the a knife to help get it snug.
- Wrap the Fruit by the Foot strip around your roll. Some folding and nipping may be necessary to get the cleanest look
