We love Peeps at Easter time. They're such an iconic treat. My husband grew up in Bethlehem, PA, so Just Born candies are always a hit with him, too. These Peeps Pretzel Rods are fun and easy, and while this particular recipe is designed for use with Easter Peeps, you could easily repeat for use with any of their seasonal marshmallow Peeps treats.
