Easter is officially over and if you’re anything like us, you have a ton of leftover candy. Specifically, we have a lot of Peeps after making our Kit Kat Easter Basket Cake, Peep Tree Cake, and Easter cupcake toppers. We decided to put on our thinking caps and think of some clever ways to use up our Peeps before they get horribly out of season. We decided to try and make Peep s’mores! Peeps are basically marshmallows, so we figured: slap them on a graham craker with some chocolate and you’ve really got something! Plus this treat is a perfect way to get pumped for summer (we know it’s only April, but summer is so fun!) First you’ll need your ingredients:
- Graham crackers
- Hershey’s chocolate
Place each Peep on a graham cracker square on a baking sheet. Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees. We just kept watching them until they poofed up. This would be a great time to swap campfire stories, minus the campfire!
You’re all done! We guess you could try actually roasting the Peeps over a campfire, but we aren’t so sure it would work.
These Peep s’mores turned out great! They were delicious and reminded us of the summer camps we used to go to when we were younger. If you still have too many Peeps, you may want to give Peep wars a try!! Place two Peeps on a paper plate and microwave them until they explode! Whichever Peep overwhelms the other wins! (This is easiest if you and your adversary each have a different color Peep). Bonus: you can give them toothpicks to joust with.
