I have always loved Peeps. Ask anyone that knows me well and they will tell you this. Sugar covered marshmallows, what could be bad! I admit that I used to buy a bunch of them at Easter and then save some in the freezer so I could enjoy them all year long.
Then a few years ago they introduced them at Christmas. And slowly I have been able to find my favorite candy more often then at just Easter.
This year I heard about Valentine’s Day themed Peeps and I thought, finally a way to show someone you really love them. Yes, with Peeps.
This Valentine’s Day you can enjoy these great flavors:
Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Crème Flavored Chicks
These are Strawberry Creme flavored marshmallows dipped in either milk or dark chocolate.
Chocolate Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Bears
I admit I am most looking forward to these. Chocolate mousse flavored marshmallows in adorable bear shapes.
Cherries Drizzled and Dipped in Chocolate
Chocolate (milk or dark) Covered Raspberry Flavored Hearts
Strawberry Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts
Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts
Sugar-Free Marshmallow Hearts
One of my favorite things about Peeps is that they are low in calories and gluten free, making them a great treat. Besides making a fun snack or special treat, I am looking forward to using them for some fun Valentine’s Day baking. I think the bears would be adorable on cupcakes.
