Hey everyone, it's Peeps season! Yes, it's that time of year again when the magical sugary marshmallow creatures with the amazing shelf life return in Easter-themed shapes.

Although they are "interesting" on their own, Peeps also make for excellent FLAMBE! Imagine if a marshmallow married a creme brulee. And then they had babies. It's super delicious... like a roasted marshmallow that has a crunchy crystallized sugar crust on the outside, warm and gooey on the inside. It's peep-a-licious.

I like to make mine by putting them on a skewer and roasting them with my Bernzomatic butane torch. Roast all around for a minute or so, then let it cool a little bit. The outer sugar shell will crystallize and harden, but it'll still be warm on the inside.

You can also get the same effect by roasting them over a fire (the more kid-friendly version)
