Peeps ... listen up! It doesn't matter if you like them or hate them because we've got something for you! We've got recipes and super-cute Easter decorations that kids and adults will love.
Prepare a 9x13-inch pan of Gourmet Crispy Bars. Use a 1-1/2-inch round cookie cutter to cut bases for "sushi rolls." Or use a knife to cut rectangles for nigiri.
Nigiri (Fish on Rice): Cut heads from some Peeps candy chicks; set aside. Turn over bodies and snip about 1/4 of the way up with scissors to shape tails. Use frosting to attach to Crispy Bar rectangles. Drizzle with melted chocolate or add sprinkles. For Nigiri with heads: Attach Peeps chicks to rectangles with tinted frosting or apricot preserves. Wrap Fruit by the Foot sanck strips around Peeps chicks and tuck ends under Crispy Bars.
Seaweed-Rice Rolls: Wrap Fruit by the Foot snack strips around edge of sushi roll bases. Use a finger to make indentations in centers. Fill as desired.
Garnish with green-tinted frosting fro "wasabi;" curl a Fruit by the Foot snack strip for "pickled ginger."
