Master-Peeps Theatre: Mondrian Peeps

The best part about Easter? Messing around with the candy, of course. There are so many things you can make happen with the sweet treats that proliferate around this time of year--make S'meeps (that's Peeps S'mores), create dessert taco plates with rice pudding and jellybean "rice and beans"; you can make Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs.

But it's also fun to add a bit of high culture to your candy-eating, and so I present this Mondrian-inspired Peeps creation. Filled in with black jellybean outlines around Peeps, marshmallows, and various other candies to fill in the gaps, this was as fun to make as it will be to eat.

My favorite part, of course, is the Peeps that are torn in half to fit in certain sections. I will tell the truth, it was gratifying to rip them apart.

If you like Peeps art, you might also enjoy the Starry Night one I made a few years ago:

Happy Easter Season!

i heart your starry night peep art!

in my family, peeps have always been eaten stale (dates back to my great-great uncle) and i always ate the bunny ears or the tails of the chicks first because they had the best hard/chewy consistency. now a vegetarian, i've had to break up with peeps, since i no longer eat gelatin.

Ha! I love this! Peeps are such an iconic American Easter thing, I love that you've turned them into something so artsy. Sadly we don't get Peeps here in the UK, but I've been thinking of making my own. Whenever I go to the US I always bring some Peeps back. My favourite are the purple ones.
You have taken Peep art to a whole new level. Love it!
