A marriage of two of my favorite things. Peeps and s’mores. I am not sure I why I had not thought of this creation before. It was not until I saw the idea floating around the Interwebs, that I realized I had been missing out on something extraordinary. And extraordinary it is. They are messy for sure. See photo above. But when they cool a bit, and start to harden up, you truly realize how the Peep really does belong in a s’more. The sugar on the outside of the Peep does something to the overall texture. Not to mention, the sheer joy of having hot pink and purple peeking out of two graham crackers. It screams festive. I am not really about subtle holiday treats.
Have you had the chocolate dipped Peeps yet? Not the one entirely coated in chocolate, but the one that is sugar coated and just the bottom is dipped? Usually the Easter candy obsession at this house is the Cadbury Mini Egg, (which I still love and obsess over) but this year we have been all about the Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Peep. I love Peeps. But I have to admit, that I am not entirely sure how I feel about a Christmas Peep. Or even a Valentine’s Day Peep.
Anyway, I want to wish you a Happy Easter. I hope that the Easter Bunny fills your basket with lots of chocolate and Peeps, of course.
Hershey’s Milk Chocolate (for s’mores, I am a traditionalist)
Lay out your graham crackers on a foil lined baking sheet. I like one small piece of chocolate, but if you like more, go crazy.
Place a Peep on top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 3 minutes or until the Peep starts to puff out.
Put another graham cracker on top and smoosh the crackers together.
How cute are these?
I told you they are messy. Be warned. But so worth it.
