I had been wanting to try my hand at homemade marshmallows for a while, so for Easter; instead of getting my favorite Easter candy, Peeps, I tried out this recipe. It was surprisingly easy! I followed the recipe exactly until the end; I sprinkled on the colored sugar after it had cooled for about an hour. It had to have some of that pretty, sweet sugar coated Peep goodness!

|Dusted the bottom with powdered sugar|
|I dipped the cookie cutters in powdered sugar between each cut.|
I only cut five bunnies, to give to my kiddos (one messed up), and the rest were eggs. The egg shape was so much easier. I rolled the cut edges in powdered sugar after each cut, and dipped all the extra bits in powdered sugar at the end. None of this deliciousness was going to waste!
|My finished "Peeps" and the extra bits.|
|They are so pretty!|
Sadly I haven't gotten to try them yet! I gave up sweets for Lent, but this Sunday I will have to test them out to make sure they're good. I think PT will need help eating his too...
