                I could eat a whole package of peeps, lol!
                I like marshmallows and sugar, so it's the perfect combo of both. XD

                              I like to roast my peeps (bunnies for the win). The outside gets all crusty and crackly and the inside is all melty.
                              Also, it is so cool (to me) that I know some of this plant and animal stuff that you guys talk about learning while making the videos. Like the marshmallow plant! I'm not intelligent by any stretch of the imagination, so knowing weird facts most people don't is my only claim to being useful. It's so much fun when that (rarely) happens.

                                  I mean it sounds at first glance like a basic marshmallow recipe--eggwhite is all well and good but a standard recipe is less allergenic, which I like, and SUPER fast and easy to whip together. Also easily amended with flavoring (I've made peppermint vanilla, root beer, and almond flavored marshmallows with the same basic recipe.)

                                                    The best way to eat a peep: spear it on a bamboo skewer and toast it on the stove. Immediately hold it in the freezer for the melted sugar to harden into a shell: gently pull the shell off and savor the delight it is. Repeat until peep is gone.

That way you balance air presure from both sides of your ear. You have to rest for couple minutes before your next atempt.

Her reaction to them saying that love is an ingredient in Peeps was the exact same to mine. Also when she says today's going to be a wrap up day and finishing touches and I see we're only half way through the video...poor Claire
