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:

  • Peeps
  • Graham crackers
  • Hershey’s chocolate

ingredients for easter dessert

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! easter smores

Once the Peeps are appropriately poofy, place a square of chocolate on top of the Peep followed by another graham cracker square, and push down. easy easter dessert

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.

what to do with extra peeps 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. peeps smores 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.

    Shenanigan’s you have done it again! Fun easy and great way to use up those peeps after Easter!!! Oh so colorful too!!!!


    What a neat idea to use them.  Seems more people like them for the decoration than the eating.  Now you’ve given everyone an opportunity to revisit an old memory as you state “summer camp”.  Good one.  Zoet Hart
