What happens when you get a bunch of quirky kids together with their uncle who loves mad science and making weird fudge?
Peeps are weird treats. I can’t stand them, but to each their own. They make a good marshmallow substitute in fudgemaking, though, so we wound up… experimenting. We swapped peeps in for the marshmallows and added a dozen crushed mint OREO cookies at the end. The fudge is a mildly minty “cookies and cream” fudge that just happens to look like stroganoff. Luckily, it doesn’t taste much like it, though.
There are probably some moral messages in there somewhere, like “don’t follow the crowd”, “be careful with what friends and parties you pick”, and “don’t trust a boiling hot tub”, but it was mostly just a fun evening with a crazy idea. Happy post-Easter candy sales!
