    Looking to expand your Peeps palate this Easter Sunday? There's no place like Serious Eats to satisfy all your sugar-encrusted marshmallow needs and desires. Continuing in the grand Peeps Week tradition, here's our offering for any occasion that calls for awesome and fun all at once: Peepshi.

    1. There is no wasabi. Same goes for ginger. Peeps are sassy enough on their own. (We tried smashing up a green Peep for a wasabi-esque condiment, but decided against this.)

    2. Do not eat an entire Peeps roll. Unless it's a challenge. (Honor must be kept at all costs.)

    3. Use the extra Peeps bodies (there will be many) to create your own Peeps diorama!

    4. Room temperature water is the ideal companion to Peepshi. Too cold and the sugar feels gritty in a bad way. Too hot and then, you're just drinking hot water.

    5. Don't let silent Peeps screams deter you from your task. You're a professional.

    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

    1 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!).

    2 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.

    3 Portion out a length of Fruit by the Foot slightly longer than the Rice Krispies Treat slice.

    4 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.

    5 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.

    6 Wrap the Fruit by the Foot strip around your roll. Some folding and nipping may be necessary to get the cleanest look.

    7 Serve at room temperature.

    LOL thanks, I thought this was a cute idea and can't wait to make some tomorrow. My kids are just going to go nuts for these, since their favorite food is sushi.
