Who doesn't love Peeps!!!
Okay...me. I don't like them.
Please don't hate me...just not a raw marshmallow fan.
However, give me a s'more made with a peep and I might bite off your finger.
Maybe that's why I've never made these before.
I just might be the very last baker to get around to them.
Until recently, peep cutters were hard to come by.
Now I've heard that Peeps sells them online and
Copper gifts makes a gorgeous copper peep cutter called
the 'Bunny Bun'. They even have different sizes!
I've put them into my virtual shopping cart a few times now,
but they always seem to be the cutters that get left behind when I see my total!!
(copper's not cheap....)
So here we are again, it's Easter time, and I still don't have the right cutter...
"NO PEEPS FOR YOU!!!!"
Well we can't have that now can we...?
Time for a little creativity....and pliers.
I found this cookie cutter set at Wal-Mart, in the Easter candy section.
Jack and I were searching for something completely different
and this jumped off the shelf at me!
I barely had it in my hot little hand when Jack said,
"MooooooooM! You already have a bunny cutter!"
(some children are much too observant aren't they?)
So I explained to him...
"You know, you're right Jack, I do. Look at the ears on this bunny though.
They look a lot like something I need and don't have.
I think I can turn this into what I need it to be."
...after mulling that over for about thirty seconds....
"Mom, can I get that star wars lego set with the clones in it.
I know I already have it but I can mix up the clones and make new ones.
I really need it so Ethan and I can have a battle and play together...."
So here's the set that came home with us...
The ears looked just like the ears on a peep to me,
I just needed to get rid of the feet.
I flipped the cutter over
and just worried about the shape of the edge that would do the cutting.
Its much harder to manipulate the folded/top edge!
It took about five minutes of smushing and pinching
with a pair of needle-nosed pliers.
No more feet!!!
His cheeks are a little less pointy too.
What do you think?
(they're 4"inches tall, in case you want to make your own!)
Pretty Peepish I'd say!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
