Poo Peeps

by janet on March 24th, 2008

Happy Easter! For Easter, Tinx and I made homemade peeps. “YOU MADE POO PEEPS?!?” said Tinx’s farty brother #1. We used Martha Stewart’s recipe. SUPER easy, with the right tools.

Like a Kitchenaid. And some decade-old gelatin. And, a mere ONE CUP of sugar! Fabulous.

All you do is boil some water and sugar to the “softball” stage (we were helped by a candy thermometer – 238 degrees), mix it in with the gelatin, and then blast that shit with the whisk attachment. For like 10 minutes.

If your mixture stinks because of the old ass gelatin like ours did, then put in something. We put in a quarter teaspoon of vanilla extract (non alcoholic – not sure if that matters or not…)

“ST” after Tinx’s and my favorite music group…

Then dump it all into a piping bag and pipe awaaaay! Well, first throw down a blanket of sprinkles for the peep bellies. Tinx did way better than I did. Her peeps actually look kind of like peeps. I mean, you can KIND of see what she was going for. My peeps just looked like testicles.

Someone wise – Alton or Jeffrey – once said to ALWAYS make your own marshmallows, because store-bought are gross. When I heard that, I was like, “Gimme a break there can’t be THAT much variance in marshmallows!” but when I took a bite of the quivering, just-set heap of heavenly fluff, I knew. Puffy, silky smooth, almost creamy, and soooo sweet. Mmmmm, testicles.
