Everyone knows Peeps, those overwhelmingly sweet little marshmellow critters that appear every Spring in the grocery store. Put your leftover Peeps to good use this Ostara, and make them into a delicious ambrosia salad! For the most colorful results, use yellow or pink Peeps.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients:
  • 1 pkg of 12 marshmellow Peeps (chicks or bunnies)
  • 2 cans mandarin oranges
  • 2 cans pineapple tidbits
  • 1 jar maraschino cherries
  • 2 chopped bananas
  • 2 C. shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 16-oz tub cottage cheese
  • 1 8-oz tub of Cool Whip or other dessert topping
Preparation:

Dice the Peeps into small pieces. Drain the juices from all the fruit. Mix all ingredients together, and allow to chill in the refrigerator for a few hours. Serve as dessert following your Ostara celebration.

I only really like them when they're stale. But this whole recipe gives me a fantastic "pseudo-sacrifice" feeling which makes me giggle. I'm sure if I do it there will be little Peep Heads placed strategically around the table. Bwahahaha

I used to eat the bodies and leave the heads in strategic places for friends, family or housemates to find. Usually on tooth pick pikes. I was an odd child...oh hell, I still do it.
