in an effort to become more celebratory of holidays, i decided yesterday afternoon that i was going to make an easter treat for some of my coworkers. i think i particularly have a hard time with easter, because american culture has just commercialized the heck out of it, and it doesn’t leave much for the actual meaning.
i have read somewhere that dyeing eggs goes back to the passover (before Christ came), but i can’t really verify that or give you any more history than that. but the easter bunny? since when does a bunny lay eggs? just saying.
i’m going to do a post later today on good friday, which will explain what easter really is, but until then i’ll hang up my cranky pants and tell you about my treat. :)
i was inspired by a link i saw on facebook yesterday. i also saw a link for peeps sushi, and had i gotten it to work, this post MIGHT just be titled, ‘peeps sushi.’
so here they are, it’s very simple. graham crackers, chocolate and peeps. at first i started out with just one peep, but it looked so lonely.
i put all of these things in a little celophane bag and tied it shut with a twisty tie. and ta-da!! some lucky soul gets the mix matched peep set. :) it’s my favorite.
right after i posted this, i gave my first one away and the recipient thought it was so cool! success. and it cost…maybe 5 dollars to make 8 of these. that’s pretty good, i say!
thanks for reading!
