What to Do With Your Leftover Easter Candy…

Reading Time: 1 minute

  1. 100_3883100_3883Separate a Marshmallow Peep from the pack.
  2. Place on a microwave-proof plate (fireproof as well, if possible) and place in microwave.
  3. Set on low-medium for 20 seconds.
  4. Watch the transformation.
  5. Enjoy the results.

Note: Longer times or higher temperatures may result in a "carmelization" of the peep, which can be difficult to clean off the microwave interior. (No, I didn’t let them try it!)
