I like Peeps and actually bought the Halloween ones to use for marshmallow roasting. Have you tried that?? The Peep sugar sort of crystalizes on the outside and the inside gets all gooey. MMM. Instead, I put each one on a lollipop stick (got those at Michaels for a different food project), put them in piece of floral foam. Put it in a square vase. Covered with orange tissue paper. Taped on jack 'o lantern parts. Put in a bit of black fun fur yarn because I had it on hand. . . . .and off to school we went. Honestly, it was a huge hit with the kids!
Now wouldn't this be fun for Easter too. A basket of bunnies and chicks and such on sticks. No gooey, sugar colored fingers!
