It's a scientific fact that Marshmallow Peeps are practically indestructible. Which is a good thing, considering that the Easter candy is used for so much more than eating: Peeps have become central props in colorful diorama contests.
The Washington Post held a must-see Peeps Show for the fifth year, with eye-popping results that must be viewed to be believed. This year's winner came up with a candy re-creation of the incredible rescue of 33 miners in Chile. See the winner of the Peeps Show and the runner's up in the slide show above.
Last year's winner re-created the house elevated by balloons in the movie "Up." A-mazing.
The chick-shaped treat with the hecka-long lifespan dates back to the 1950s and has only grown in popularity on the Web. Searches in the last week alone for "marshmallow peeps" have sweetened the Search box almost 1,000%. Peeps fans are also craving "marshmallow peeps recipes," "peeps dioramas," and "peeps art."
