I wrote an article about Improv and the Art of Snacking for @thekitchn http://www.thekitchn.com/how-snacking-is-like-improv-comedy-219921#.yzacak:K5n9
I had a revelation about snacking after reading the rules of improv comedy in Tina Fey’s book, Bossy Pants. Snacking is different that cooking. Cooking is often planned and follows a recipe. You could compare cooking to being an actor following a script. Snacking, on the other hand, is about being in the moment; thus, the most creative and inventive snacks are the result of mastering the art of improv.

All hail the Peep bunny king. 
That and more of my Peeps related shenanigans over at the +Food Network . 
Fun fact: Most recipes that use marshmallows can be made infinitely cuter by swapping in Peeps.
