  1. I’ve been wanting this book since I saw the PEEPS film contest post, here on Craftzine! Peeps are so cute! I need this book because I just love to create crafts with food. It’s fun, and the kids love it too!

  2. I sooooo have to have this! I need it!! Delicious craftiness what could be better!!! I have this on my amazon list, because I will get this one way or another!!
    Have a marshmallow day!!

  3. I adore Peeps! I’m sitting at my desk at work right now which has a fabby Peep balloon floating above it, a Peep Show desktop picture and I’m not ashamed to admit that last week I Peeped my friends car! (stuck pink Peeps all over it!) yankeegirldesigns @

  4. My brother and I have been calling each other “Peeps” for years and now he refers to my kids as his little peeps. Please, please, please may we have the book? It would mean so much to us! Thanks!

  6. I would like this book because I enjoy Peeps but not to the extent my in-laws seem to think I do* and I always end up with more Peeps than my house can reasonably consume. If I could do something more interesting with them they might disappear before they are no longer tasty.
    * I get Peeps for nearly every holiday which has Peeps made for it. Seriously.

  7. Oh my goodness! I love those little peeps. I get made fun of for it. I would love to have this book.

  8. Not a peep eater myself, but I might FINALLY get my husband to craft with me if there are peeps, and especially if there is the promise of more peeps!

  9. My husband loves PEEPS more than I do and I think he would really enjoy a creative special craft or delicious recipe that I could create for him. There’s something *magical* about pastel-colored sugar-covered marshmallows in the shape of bunnies and birdies that make us feel like young children enjoying an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday. If we could buy PEEPS all year long, I’m sure we’d always have a few of them in our house.

  10. Peeps = marshmallow goodness. I’m a Peep fanatic: every color, every flavor, every season. Nothing finer than some sugar with more sugar on it. I prefer them to be a little stale…cut the package, let them sit for 2-3 days, then enjoy!
    This book would look charming on my coffee table and I’d like to be the envy of all my friends.

  11. It is well known to many that I have a “thing” for Peeps…the yellow bunnies are my favorite, and once I open a box, it is rare that I can stop until the box is empty!
    Yesterday was one of “those days” and I sat down and ate an entire box…well, except for two bunnies that I had to share with my son when he found me and discovered that they were almost gone. Perhaps winning the recipe book and learning some creative ways to use my Peeps would make my ‘addiction’ less of a joke for my family!

  12. Ha! We eat peeps year round at my house because the husband and toddler think they’re the best treat ever. I might actually get my husband to craft with this book ;)
    bbybookworm (at) gmail (dot) com

  13. My family and I have enjoyed peeps for years! We have the big “fresh or stale” debate all the time. I guess crafting with peeps would give us something new to talk about!

  14. OMP OMP (oh my PEEP !!!!! Oh my PEEP!)
    I WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I absoulutly LOVE PEEPS (I buy them more for me than my 2 kids , hahahahaha)
    Enter me please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Yes please! My mom and I were just arguing. She says pink/green/lavender Peeps are unnatural in color and prefers yellow. I say there is no BAD PEEP! I need this book to encourage my mom to craft with me and Peeps Peace will abound, I’m sure. Thanks.

  17. Oh My PEEEEEEEEP!!!!!
    I want want want that book, please , peep !!!!
    I love love peeps and I think I buythem for me and not my kids :)
    enter me , ok?

  18. I want this book for my husband, not myself! He is a HUGE fan of Peeps – I cannot even begin to give you an idea of how emotionally attached to Peeps he is. I would love to give him this as a fun treat and a congratulations because he just got accepted to graduate school yesterday!
    Thanks! – Jennie

  19. I would so LOVE this book! My husband calls me his straberry Bunny! I’m going to buy a bunch of Peeps when I tell him that we’re pregers!!!!

  20. This year I swore I’d enter the Peep Diorama contest (check the Washington Post) so I have 19 boxes of assorted colors, kinds, and quantities of Peep products just waiting for my creativity. Alas! This year the entry deadline came and went and now I have a heart filled with creative desire, a pantry filled with Peep goods and a need for the Peep book so I can satisfy it all! What a terrific find – I’ll have to search for it no matter what. Thanks for the chance to win! rhleep at gmail dot com

  21. The Peeps are in the microwave! Those poor little creatures are being blown up by the evil children in my basement. Help me, Craftzine, you’re my only hope.

  22. I simply must have this book because it really fits into my *thing*, which lately has been making every day ordinary ingredients at home from scratch. Like butter and superfine sugar and marshmallows . . . it goes on and on!

  26. I would actually like to win this book for a friend. Even if I don’t win it, I may just have to find a copy anyway.
    Every year, without fail, she posts about her adventures with Peeps on Easter. Some years, they get blown up in the microwave, some years, it’s roasted over the fire. I so look forward to the Easter Peep blog, and this would be a great thank you gift!

  27. Oh I would love this book. Me and my boys could have so much fun making stuff with the peeps. And they just love peeps.

  28. I have loved Peeps since I was a kid. I remember hoping that I would receive it in my Easter basket and being overjoyed when I received it. I still see Easter baskets even today that have them. I especially love the yellow ones and the fact that it is made of marshmallow. I am wanting to go out and buy some as I write this comment. I am happy to see that there are so many creative ways to make peeps into different things. I would really enjoy adding this book to my craft collection and sharing it with my niece. Since I am always talking to her about arts and crafts.

  29. Hi Craftzine friends :)
    Please enter me into the contest for the peeps craftbook.
    I have an easter bunny addict at home who lives on nothing but sparkly yellow marshmellow peeps :)

  30. I’m posting a comment for the first time anywhere on the internet because I think this is worth it. I just bought a box of Peeps for myself and ate one simply to have the warm, fun feeling of being a happy-go-lucky kid! I didn’t want this Easter to pass without joining in the Peep-generated excitement of the season. I gave some to my 22yr old son and said, “Did you eat a Peep yet?” He said, “You gave me a box of Peeps! How could I not eat one?” I know I made his day. I truly admire the inovation of the person who made this candy!!! kemartini at gmail dot com

    Love Peeps— It’d be fun to make things (edible or not!) with peeps. They always bring a smile to my face when I see them in an Easter basket.

  32. I need this book to truly be a good mother to my son. He is nine and peeps are his favorites, we are so glad you can get them for every holiday now. Plus, we are going to make the bag this weekend, he need more ideas for homemade Christmas & birthday gift.

  33. Until a few days ago, I was the only one in my family who liked Peeps. Then I offered a tiny taste to my toddler – and we discovered that he sure does like Peeps, too. Smart boy!
    I see a future together for us and our Peeps – a future this book will make even more fun. We’d love to win it!

  34. This book looks too cute! I would love to have it and make some crafty goodness out of those one of a kind PEEPS!

  35. I must have this book because I cannot stand peeps. Let me explain, I always get them for Easter, always. But I do not like eating them, and have not ever enjoyed them. If I had this book I would be able to find uses for them in crafts and maybe I would find a recipe that would help me to come to love them.

  36. Although I hate the taste of Peeps, I’d love to have this book because I live pretty close to Bethlehem, PA where they are made and we are always getting tons of free ones at work that go stale (is this possible?). It would be nice to turn them into something cool and crafty.

  37. Peeps are just a great piece of America. I’ve got a stuffed peep on my desk at work. It makes me smile.

  38. I love Peeps but am on a diet, no refined sugars. We have tons around the house at Easter. I need some ideas of what to do with Peeps, otherwise I will eat them, they will turn into rock hard statues, or my cat will hide them under the couch like he did last year (best tasting birds he ever caught).

  39. I love Peeps! To top it off, I’m pregnant so my cravings for the sugary marshmallow treat is even stronger!

  40. Oh Please, I NEED this book as an Easter gift for my mom, the eater of been-opened-in-the-cupboard-since-last-Easter-hard Peeps. I know many people, apparently, like Peeps best this way, but it has been a long-standing source of ribbing for us.

  41. I love Peeps! (and who doesn’t?)
    Peeps are like a ray of sunshine in dark, cold months up here so pick me and brighten up my day!!

  42. I heart peeps so much! I’ve been eating a tray of them a day for the last week or so. If I had this book I could do other things with the Peeps so that I wouldn’t eat all of them.

  43. Ooh!! A new “Bible” for the kitchen; I love it! I have to own this book!!!

  44. I have used nearly every craft medium out there….but never Peeps! I must have this book, so that I can master the nuances of the Peep. And,….I would be too cool to my kids. :-)

  45. I must have the Peep book. I love the marshmallowy, sugary artificial goodness. I float them in cocoa (cocoa is good, but with a little yellow chick bobbing in it it changes your whole outlook on life). I want to have a little cafe known for the best cocoa where each cup comes with a seasonally appropriate Peep.

  46. I REALLY want this book because Peeps have been yummy, sugary friends through many tough times in my life. I would love to have some fun crafty ideas to do with them and pay them back for all the joy they’ve given me!

  47. My family and I love PEEPS! It isn’t Easter at our house until I bring home the PEEPS. My daughter is the one who eats them, she likes to put them into her hot chocolate. (Is this cruel?) And we collect all the PEEPS stuffed animals, we have big pillow ones, and little teeny pen toppers. I’m afraid of this year’s red ones though, they seem to have come from a horror movie, I’ll stick with the pastel PEEPS. Oh, and we enjoy seeing the results of The Washington Post’s PEEPS diorama contest. Check it out!

  48. OooOOoooh! I must have this book! I’ve got big plans for some Peeps on a cake this weekend…but this book might inspire the munchkins to get in on the action. knittinandnoodlin at yahoo dot com.

  49. OoOOooOooh! I have some big plans for Peeps atop our cake at Easter dinner. This book might inspire the munchkins to get involved in the Peepy Craftiness! knittinandnoodlin at yahoo dot com.

  50. Well, who would have guessed I’ve been missing out on an entire book of Peeps recipes. balletmama at hotmail dot com

  51. Why have I never seen this book before. It is sooooo cute! Peeps are so cute. My email:
    growhomeshop at yahoo dot com

  52. I love Peeps. In theory I love them stale even more than I love them “fresh” but I never manage to keep them around long enough to get stale.

  53. my friend loves peeps and I’d love to share this book with her!
    Rini at

  54. This book would be perfect for our kid’s and teen’s craft times at the library I work at.

  55. I need this book, I’ve already made Peep magnets, Peep cards and a Peep jewelry box!

  56. My mother loves Peeps more than anyone I know. She would love to receive Peep-related gifts from me for Mother’s Day, her birthday and Christmas. Luckily, they make Christmas Peeps!

    Why do I deserve this book? Because I wait all year for Easter Peeps, refusing to buy them at non-Peep holidays. :-)

  58. Peeps, how do I adore thee, let me count the ways…
    cheep cheep cheep!
    emily dot schildhouse at gmail dot com

  60. I need this book for work. I work in the kid’s dept. of a huge library and this would be great for programing.
    natana dot gill at cityofhouston dot net

  61. I would like to win this for my husband, who has a deep and inexplicable love for Peeps. (Inexplicable not as in, I don’t get it, but as in, it defies all human language.) He would LOVE this book, and I would love to give it to him in congratulations for getting accepted into grad school yesterday.
    notensionknits (at) gmail (dot) com

  62. I want the book because I love peeps (in that bad candy is so good way) but I NEED the book because it will drive my husband crazy!

    slightlyfoxeddc (at) yahoo dot com

  67. I may actually be the only person on earth that actually like the way they taste. I love the sugary crunch.
    alliemaries at yahoo dot com

  68. I grew up with sisters who adore peeps just as much as I do. Aside from being dedicated crafters, we all have assorted peep paraphenalia, and this book would be a great addition to share amongst us.
    holtsalvi (at) yahoo dot com

  69. I would be able to use the book to assure that my wife is always able to have Peeps everyday. She enjoys Peeps a lot and this would allow me to shower her with Peeps surprises.

  75. Peeps Peeps Peeps!
    I love to eat the little things, but I love even more to have them play with each other, even make war in the microwave!
    deliriousduckie at yahoo dot com

  76. I love peeps, for Easter (so currently) I decorate my house with glittery peeps lights (in blue bunny and yellow chick) two large stuffed peeps for the mantle and a small stuffed peep for the front hall tree. I don’t know what it is about the little guys but they just make me happy!
    my email addy is marzipan dot bunny at gmail dot com

  77. I made up a poem about peeps to share with you. I absolutely LOVE peeps and would be very, very, very happy if I won! I made the best poem about peeps I could think up! Oh I’m soooo excited!
    I only buy peeps once a year
    I opened the microwave and saw a smear
    I looked around the house and then I did see
    A giant peep looking back at me
    cdodds at iw dot net

  78. I actually don’t eat peeps, I just don’t like them. But that doesn’t mean that they’re not adorable and perfect for crafts! Yipppeee.

  81. My Peep Love
    I carry my Peep Fan Club Card in my wallet at all times.
    I asked my sister if I could teethe her baby with a Peep (no, I couldn’t)
    I saved enough Peep Points to get a Peep Clock for my kitchen (that’s a loooooooot of Peeps)
    Peeps + Crafts = Happiness
    lifeinsarahland at yahoo dot com

  82. My daughter and I shared a private joke about PEEPS years ago and to this day we can’t even look at a PEEP without bursting into laughter. This book would be a fabulous gift for her…of course I would have to insert the family PEEP story for her to stumble across while reading the book :-)
    sophiathemaltese at gmail dot com

  83. ahh….the easter gift that keeps on giving….every year my mom peeps buys them on sale after easter…opens the package and lets them dry out and harden….enjoying them months later…her favorite treat of all times….i think she’s crazy, but anytime i see a peep, i think of her and smile….
    jodie at whitewaterceramics dot com

  84. I would love to get a copy of the book for my mom. She’s mad for Peeps and drove three towns over to see the Peepmobile when it passed through — all by herself, since my sister and I (who are both in our early twenties) have not inherited her obsession. I can’t think of a better Easter gift for her.

  85. My children have actually never tasted PEEPS but are very curious and anxious to taste them. They are so cute and the book looks like a ton of fun to make an even more adorable treat.
    LOVE Easter and would be thankful for the chance to win this really COOL book.
    Thank You!!!!!!

  86. I need this book because it’s my brother’s birthday on March 20 and I don’t have a gift yet.
    Saying he loves Peeps is an understatement. He’d kill me if he knew I was sharing this story. When we were in high school, my mom made him an appointment to have a few questionable moles removed on his back. As a reward for not being a morose teenager on the day of the appointment, she bought out all of the local Target store’s recently-clearance boxes of Peeps for him.
    I’m sure the combination of this book plus Easter weekend will blow. his. mind.
    robinsnc at gmail dot com

  87. I would love to have this book, because I love anything related to peeps. I hope there’s an amigurumi pattern included. . .

  88. I LOVE PEEPS! When I was stationed overseas and couldn’t get them, my best friend would send them to me–my favorite care package ever!
    kenglish2 at aol dot com

  89. I love Peeps, but I’ve always felt the non-Easter ones were somehow… wrong (?) or just not as delicious.

  90. Actually, I don’t need the peeps book BUT my Brother-In-Law would LOVE it! He’s a chef and at culinary school they had Peep eating contests around this time. sherlyn AT umich DOT edu

  91. I love Peeps! One of my favorite all time Spring treats! Thanks for giving us a chance to win this super cool book!!!

  92. What a fun book! I try not to eat them, but they look soo cute!! Now I have a reason to buy them!
    abrilmolina at yahoo dot com

  93. PEEPS oh PEEPS pick me please…I must have this book..I am a PEEP fanatic…this would complete my world….thank you…PEEPS 4 EVER!!!

    fembeck at aol dot com

  94. OOOOhhhh, I was just having a conversation with my friends and coworkers about the joys of peeps and dipping them in chocolate. My husband and I were the only ones who thought this was a good idea! I would love to be able to show them all the wonderful things you can do with the sugary deliciouness of peeps!!

  95. heather at rzn8 dot com
    Who knew such a cute book existed. Now I can find something to do with those cute candies that won’t ruin my diet.

  96. I need this book because I live in Bethlehem- home of the “Just Born” factory- there is even a converted vw bug “Peepmobile” that drives around town! Magical.

  97. Peeps, love them! best.creation.ever. With this book maybe I can get my husband to actually touch one. kischer at gmail dot com

  98. Very cute, and it will be fun to read and try. I’ve never eaten a peeps! My parents didn’t believe in treats when I was young, and I never had the nerve to try them when I grew up and had kids of my own. I guess now’s the time!

  99. I just got my peep cup and this book would go peepily with it. Sign me up. Thanks for the giveaway.
    b dot werts at sbcglobal dot net

  100. LOVE peeps!!! love love love them! I can feel the gut rot now….
    s.lee.ferguson at gmail dot com

  101. I may be too late… but I need this book because I’ve broken all the nearby microwaves! (Um…I’ve been inflating my peeps to unholy sizes)
    I need new ideas!
