What To Do With All Those Peeps You Don't Want to Eat

Another Easter has come and gone. We've gorged ourselves with festive, pastel-colored candy (only the best kind though), we've found most of the eggs that we hid in the yard (that'll be a nasty surprise next year) and we've enjoyed spending time with family and friends (now we don't have to again 'till the Fourth of July). And what do we have to show for all of this holiday spirit?

Peeps. A shit ton of Marshmallow Peeps.

Sure, they're cute and they're an Easter icon, but what are they really good for anyway? Gut Check has rounded up our favorite Peep projects in hope that we can inspire you to greatness.

Here are the top six things to do with leftover Peeps...

1. Jousting Peeps

I don't know about you folks, but where Gut Check comes from, this is a tried and true Easter tradition. You'll need a microwave safe plate, two toothpicks and however many Peeps you're willing to sacrifice in battle. Oh, and a microwave. The chick Peep variety are best for this game, but bunnies will work too. Place the Peeps facing each other and stick the toothpicks into the Peeps so they look like they have their jousting rods facing each other. Turn the microwave on for a minute. Whoever's Peep inflates and stabs the other one first is the winner. Then, we suppose, you can eat the gooey mess.
