Easter Peeps

I'm not a big fan of prepackaged peeps, but recently, I've learned how to make homemade marshmallow. It's easy, soft, delicious, and can be flavored just about any way you can imagine. It's really just a matter of making a syrup (sugar, water, and corn syrup, heated to boiling) and then whisking it with the stand mixer into bloomed gelatin and the flavoring. These ones were lemon flavored. After beating the mixture until it's nice and fluffy, The Girl piped them out into little chick shapes and coated some with powdered sugar and some with colored sugar. I can't tell you how awesome these are. If you haven't made marshmallow yourself, do it. Now!
