so i don't know if you all know, but marshmallow peeps are like my most. favorite. thing. ever. if i had to choose what to eat the day before i die, it would be a rice noodle bowl with a side of fish sauce and marshmallow peeps for dessert (but only the chicks as i'm pretty unscientifically convinced that shape = better taste).
the following pictures will prove to you that i am a marshmallow peep murderer. no worries. i promise they did not die in vain because how amazing is it that rice krispy treats + peeps = MARSHMALLOW PEEP RICE KRISPIES!!!
everyone at your easter shindig will be awing in amazement.
i'm not sure why this peep has a monocle?? but it's pretty darn cute.
