As it turns out, I went a bit overboard this year when I saw the variety of Peeps at the store before Easter.

Now it's a week after Easter and I still have Peeps. It seems I can't eat more than one plain Peep at a time so I had to get creative if I was ever to rid myself of my excess marshmallow treats. Ideas included Peep dioramas, Peep play dough, Peep s'mores, putting a Peep in hot cocoa, microwaving Peeps and setting a Peep on fire (or at least trying to set a Peep on fire).

Here's a video of my efforts to use up Peeps.


And if you want to see a longer video of our attempts to set a Peep on fire, here you go.

And even after all of these efforts I still have Peeps left. Maybe I'll try Peep Rice Krispy treats next.

Growing up in the Brainerd lakes area I realized that I never wanted to leave, so it is a true blessing that I was able to find a job at the Dispatch doing something I love. As a visual journalist, I work in the mediums of photography and videography to bring our readers everything from sports, hard news, weather and local events to slice of life documentation of our coverage area.
