Denture Danger: 5
This is quite an interesting new twist on the classic Easter candy, Peeps. This individually wrapped peep is crunchy, this peep is gooey, this peep is a taste treat. Maybe it is just because of the contrasting crunchy chocolate, but the marshmallow inside the milk chocolate casing seems gooyer than that of a normal peep making it taste like a coconutless mallowcup.
Ehem, allow me clarify, this is not a chocolate covered Peep. This is a chocolate covered Peep shaped marshmallow, at least it attempts to be Peep shaped. Peeps are most known for the delicious and colorful sugar that surrounds them, unfortunately this chocolate covered yellow marshmallow lacks that sweet, crunchy sugar.
This difference also explains the different consistency of the marshmallow itself. Chocolate covered peeps are something you can find recipes for through the internet, Peeps’ Milk Chocolate Covered Marshmallows can be found on candyfavorites.com. Despite the fact that this really isn’t a traditional peep, this is a delicious candy… and I bet it would be even better melted between two halves of a graham cracker.
