Just in time to be to late for Easter it's Creeps, the marshmallow treat with a bang!
As many of you probably know these were part of ThinkGeek's 2013 April Fools
product line but this means, at least at time of writing, that they are also fake. This is a shame because it's a great pun and would make a great gift for the Minecraft enthusiast in your life. In keeping with the creeper's explosive tendencies I've added a twist to the marshmallow recipe, a jalapeno infusion. This gives these guys a spicy kick that sets them apart from their chick and bunny counterparts.
Note: For those of you who don't know, a creeper is a hostile monster (mob) from the game Minecraft
. When a player ventures to near a creeper it explodes like a block of TNT.
This nasty habit is the inspiration for making the Creeps spicy.
There are three parts to this project, each of which is sort of it's own mini project, but the best way to get real Creeps is to follow all of them. The parts are: Building a creeper shaped cutter, making the spicy marshmallow, and turning the marshmallow into creepers. First up is the cutter.
