Easter is still a ways away, but people have already begun filling up on their favorite holiday treats — Peeps. Eat 'em plain or bake them into sugary Peeps recipes, these sugar-coated marshmallows are a symbol of both Easter and the spring season as a whole. But this candy can be more than the star of an Easter basket. It can also be the main ingredient in a Peep-filled dessert.

Let's be honest — as much as people love Peeps, they can only eat so many before tossing their marshmallows, so to speak. Even Matt Stonie, who ate 100 Peeps in two minutes, probably grew sick of the chicks and bunnies at some point during his challenge. But when the Easter Bunny fills your basket with boxes upon boxes of Peeps, you have to find a way to get rid of them. And we don't mean sticking them in the microwave and watching them self-combust.

From cookies and cakes to a seasonal s’more, there are plenty of easy ways to turn your Peeps into a delicious dessert. In fact, we have so many Peep-filled recipes for you to try, you may have to go out and buy more.
