Intermission: Peep Show (The Candy Kind)

The Washington Post is highlighting some of its favorite submissions of dioramas made out of Peep candies.

For six years, The Washington Post has hosted a Peep Diorama Contest, receiving thousands of submissions of famous historical or cultural scenes made entirely out of Peep marshmallow candies. The deadline for 2012 submissions is later today, so the paper is highlighting their favorite submissions from past years for last-minute inspiration. Although the finalists and semi-finalists selected must be from D.C., Maryland, or Virginia, anyone can enter. Who knew leftover Easter candy could be so fun?
