Y’all, my life has been changed forever.
Last week, the girls wanted to have a fire and roast marshmallows. And Adam responds, “We should roast Peeps.”
The man is a genius. A freaking genius.
So tonight Alaina and I went to CVS (because I lost my car keys and therefore couldn’t go anywhere today that I couldn’t walk to with all three kids) and bought several packages of Peeps, in every shape and color (you know, because they were 50% off, making each package only 95c).
Started a fire and forked up those Peeps:
Roasted them and waited one minute before tasting.
I will say it again. The man is a genius.
Roasted Peeps are amazing. Just as I imagined, the sugar caramelizes when heated by the fire. By waiting one minute before eating, you allow the outside of the Peep to harden just a bit to make a crispy, caramelized shell that encases the melted marshmallow.
It is heaven, y’all. Pure heaven.
Try it. It will change your marshmallow roasting days forever.
(I should note, I don’t like non-roasted Peeps, AT ALL. But roasted is a whole new story.)
