I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I was reading about how Emory University did a study on dissolving Peeps. They said that the Peeps eyes wouldnt dissolve in anything. So I decided we needed to put this to the test.
You can see the pouty lip above. She was not happy we were “wasting” the Peeps. Don’t worryshe got one to nibble on. I asked the kids what they thought would dissolve the Peeps. we filled size mason jars with different liquids. And dropped one Peep Bunny in each Jar.
In the meantime, we decided to have a Peep duel. But alas our Peeps were lovers not fighters and they just toppled over and layed there. Looking all delicious.
The kids thought of one more liquid to add to our experiment and we were off. Watching closely for any changes
24 hours Later there was some change I was actually pretty surprised. Look at the Bubbles (AKA Dawn Dish soap)
I will say this even after it looked like it had completely dissolved the eyes and nose were still floating around
Above if you look carefully you can see the eyes still floating
And the last day, Day 7 the lemon juice grew a lot of mold and I was kind of done at this point. So that is as far as we got.
But we still had leftover Peeps so what to do?
We made amazing Peep Crispy Treats of course!
And here they are. They were so yummy I will say they were a bit firmer or harder then other rice crispy trerats I have made. But definitely still very good. Please check out my Peeps Pinterest Board for TONS of great Peep related crafts, snacks, and projects.
