Peep Sushi


Behold…Peep Sushi, or as the originators are fond of saying, Peepshi. Yes, I am including this in my recipes tage because dudes…Peep! Sushi! There can be none cuter! Anyway, under the clicky is the whole sordid instructions.

Ingredients
* A sharp knife, preferably a mini cleaver like the one found in the Serious Eats office. (Don’t ask.)
* Peeps: 6 Peeps per roll, 1 Peep per handroll, 1 Peep per nigiri
* 1 box of Rice Krispies Treats
* 1 box of Fruit by the Foot
* Nimble fingers. Man hands might find this a wee difficult.

Directions

1. Slice off six 3/16th inch slices lengthwise from a Rice Krispies Treat (Please don’t kill yourself trying to get exactly 3/16 inches. There are more important things to worry about, like beheading Peeps!).

2. Execute six Peeps of your color choice by decapitation. Cut off more neck than you think is appropriate. If necessary, you can trim off more later.

3. Portion out a length of Fruit by the Foot slightly longer than the Rice Krispies Treat slice.

4. Flatten and elongate the Rice Krispies Treat slice slightly and shape it into a hollow circle. It’s okay if it breaks, just mold it back together again.

5. Take a Peep head and tuck it into the top of the hollow Rice Krispies treat cylinder. Use a toothpick or tip of the a knife to help get it snug.

6. Wrap the Fruit by the Foot strip around your roll. Some folding and nipping may be necessary to get the cleanest look.

7. Serve at room temperature.

Preparation Notes
Ok you have to visit the original site because they have cooler pictures and there is a whole etiquette section of eating peep sushi that I didn’t yoink but is worth the read. Go on, I’ll wait.

We cut our Rice Crispy treats in half long ways so we had 2 thinner but “full sized” planks for our peep nigiri (the single whole peeps on a plank). For the rolls we cut the Krispy treat in ribbons down the long edge so we had planks that were maybe 2 inches by half an inch by whatever we sliced the plank by (maybe a quarter inch?). We didn’t moosh up the Krispy treat but instead made a circle and stuffed the peep head (or parts) in.

I am sad that I couldn’t find anything but multi froot by the foot. I think single colored froot tape would have looked better.

Oddly, this is not as sweet as one might think: The crispity of the Rice Krispy cuts the peep sweet adn the froot adds a nice tart. They were really quite good but filling.


2009: Saturday was indeed more exciting because I slept in!

2008: JSFR: White Rabbit Corn Flavour Candies

2007: JSFR: Meltyblend (cacao)

2006: “Like, the car ahead of me? It was stopped for like the looooongest time. I mean, am I supposed to be like waiting for my turn at the stop sign? That’s so, like, bogus.”

2005: I slackery.

2004: I’ve been busy at Promotion Fu but not as busy as I would like; sock puppets are still stalled at “How do I get the damned spots on without gluing myself to the puppet”, and they don’t even have feet yet. Poor sock puppets.

2003: “Hey babe, I have a pocket full of squishy ninjas all for you!”
