Before Rick can even light the fire, the children, roasting sticks in hand, start jockeying for positions around the fire-pit. My job, in addition to acting as fencing referee, is to provide the marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars.
Last May, my little cousin, a city-gal, and fellow foodie through and through, arrived on the banks of Mill Creek with her four boys, and a shopping bag loaded with marshmallow PEEPS - purchased at a discount after Easter.
On the plus-side, the PEEPS held their shape better than their staid conterpart, were a little less messy, and thus easier to eat.
All in all, the S'MEEPS were a big hit, but remember to stock up during the Easter season. The PEEPS will stay fresh in their original packaging for months after the holiday.
