How to Make Homemade Marshmallow Peeps
I totally get the glory of the drugstore candy aisle at this time of year. Trust me, friends, I do.
(The bag of Reese's Pastel Eggs in my basket at Walgreens today proves my point.)
(Giant Reese's Pieces, people, OMG GET SOME.)
But in spite of all the readily available, totally craveworthy store-bought candy that's only available at Easter, there's still room to blow minds and influence people with some seriously amazing homemade treats. And I can't think of too many other things that will make people think you've really gone off the deep end and into a Sea of Martha quite like making your own marshmallow peeps. From scratch. I know!
Of course I had to address this very topic in Marshmallow Madness!, and recently I had the chance to shoot a few marshmallow-y how-to videos with the incredible folks at CHOW.
