Peeps Crab Nuggets

WINNER: BRAVEST 1 pound crab meat 4 tablespoons butter or margarine 1 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon dry mustard 1 teaspoon parsley flakes 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten 1/2 cup flour Oil for frying 2 three-ounce packs of Peeps Chicks Pick over crab meat; remove any bits of shell and cartilage. Flake crab meat; place in mixing bowl. Put Peeps in freezer and freeze. Melt butter in small sauce pan. Add seasonings except for Old Bay, bread crumbs, and egg yolks to crab. Add melted butter. Put frozen Peeps in food processor and process the Peeps until they are gooey. Scrape out of processor and put in microwave safe bowl. Microwave the Peeps for 10 seconds and stir in Old Bay, then add to the mixing bowl and mix all of the ingredients. Put in ice box or freezer to firm up the mixture. Heat your oil to 360 degrees. Form mixture into nuggets the size of walnuts and dredge in flour. Makes about 20 or more nuggets depending on how you size them. Fry in heavy saucepan or deep fryer until golden brown. The sweetness of the Peeps combined with the Old Bay gives the nuggets a real taste kick.
