Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a great week and have something to look forward to this weekend. It’s Easter weekend and we’ve got all our traditional plans lined up with the kids. Should be a great weekend! This year I saw this idea floating around on Pinterest and had to give it a go. So yesterday we visited with some friends and I took over the ingredients, all three of them, needed to make Peeps S’mores. You can find some great pictures on how to make these yourself on Live, Love, Pasta, a really cool recipes blog.
Couple notes: Kids will be screaming at your feet, “ I want pink! I want purple!“, and it’s just more trouble than it’s worth to try to hold one of these and take a picture with your phone to send to your poor husband who’s working while you’re stuffing your face with marshmallowy chocolate heaven. A hunk of melted chocolate is apt to slide out onto the floor, you’ll find out your SD card is full and the eat-your-heart-out picture idea was doomed before you got started, and did I mention those anxious children who want their treats, like NOW?! Never mind the photos. You can find those here. Just get ta eatin’!
So here’s what you do: You pretty much stack these babies up like a regular s’more: graham cracker – chocolate – peep – graham cracker. Then pop them in the microwave. 13 seconds was the magic number for us. They are soooo good! The Peep is a little softer and sugary-er (yup, that’s a word) than a regular marshmallow. It’s truly delish. And if you’re a hardcore Peep S’mores eater, do it up double decker style like what you see in the picture. Mmm…so good. These are incredibly easy to make and a huge hit with the kids. Obviously they’re a huge hit with me, too!
