Love them or hate them, Peeps are popping.

Fluffy little sugar-coated marshmallow critters, around since the 1950s, are no longer merely an Easter-basket staple. They're cultural touchstones, with fan clubs, a clothing line and even a store devoted to them at National Harbor.

Now we want to see how you can use them as an ingredient.

Enter our Baltimore Sun Peeps recipe contest by devising a way to creatively incorporate Peeps into a dish. Recipes can be a sweet, but we'd love to see some savories. (Ask yourself: "What would a contestant on 'Chopped' do with Peeps?") Peeps soup! Peeps cocktails! Peeps stir-fry? Maybe.

Winners will receive generous prize packages from Peeps-maker Just Born Candy.

Entries must include a recipe, a high-resolution photo of the dish and contact information. Send them to jill.rosen@baltsun.com by March 18.
