Easter Experiments

For some reason, I've always loved the sugary "Peeps" available only at Easter. I've always called them "chickies". My kids don't seem as enamored of them. Yesterday at Lauren's piano lesson, we mentioned to her teacher that William had discovered that if you put a "chickie" in the microwave, it blows up. He got a horrified look on his face until I realized he thought we meant a live chickie, as he knows we recently hatched some. We soon clarified. Because I knew of what I was thinking, it didn't occur to me that he might think something else.

Here is what happens when you put a candy chickie in the microwave.

Before: Poor innocent peep

Dead chickie
Disclaimer: We didn't continue to cook the peep, as we were worried it might catch on fire and ruin my microwave. I've heard of this happening to someone but I won't name names.

It almost looks like a reversed fried egg.
