Peeps S’mores for Easter


So what do you get when you combine a peep and a s’more? a shmeep maybe? Whatever you want to call them, they are good, and I am not found of peeps. I do like marshmallows, but peeps? You have to admit they are kind of gross, and a little odd. Here’s my son’s first experience with a peep. He was 5 months old here, and just starting to explore the world of food. Despite my lack of photography skills back then, he sure is a little butterball of cuteness, isn’t he?ย  Looks like he’s saying, what the heck is this Daddy? But peeps are so freakin cute, and no Easter basket would be complete without them.So here is the perfect quick and easy recipe to use up leftover peeps. Just add chocolate bars and graham crackers to the kid’s Easter baskets and you’ll be set!

Hope you have a wonderful Easter, I will have more Easter recipe ideas next week. Don’t forget I also have a new giveaway from Seattleโ€™s Best for a $100 Amazon Gift Card from Blogher.

    I can’t resist sharing that we actually went to the Peeps Fest in 2009 in Bethlehem PA where they make the candy. It was Christmas time, and s’mores were on the menu. The best part were the dioramas that local school students made using Peeps and other Just Born candies (they make Mike n Ikes and Hot Tamales):

    These are way cute! Pretty surprised some nut-job animal rights activist hasn’t freaked out about the smashing of the Peeps and PETA hasn’t slapped ya with a lawsuit of some kind, but I’m glad you don’t have the extra drama on your page! LOL Cute idea!

    Gwenevere — April 19, 2011 @ 7:20 am

    I don’t know why I like peeps…I think its the grainy crunch the sugar provides, whatever the reason…I think these S’Meeps are GENIUS! So much so that I’m going to stock up on a few packages of peeps to enjoy this summer as we s’more around the fire pit. ๐Ÿ™‚

    vikki — April 19, 2011 @ 9:16 am

    too cute! can you roast the peeps over a fire? that might be a little too scary but that’s the fun of smores!

    • Angie replied: — April 19th, 2011 @ 9:19 am

      I was afraid to put them over an open fire because I thought the sugar crystals would burn to quickly, but I don’t really know what will happen. If you try it let me know how it turns out!

    My daughter in England LOVES Peeps! I’ll plan to take a bunch with me when I go end of May. We’ll eat Peep S’Mores while waiting for her baby to make her/his entrance. And get to introduce my son-in-law to another wonderful American treat!

    Won’t the peeps explode in the microwave? Cleaning marshmallow out of the microwave=no fun. Just wondering! It looks like a brilliant idea.

    • Angie replied: — April 19th, 2011 @ 4:19 pm

      Just be careful not to over zap them Kristen, none of ours have exploded. But you can also place under the broiler ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is AWESOME! We just got a HUGE box of Ghirardelli (dark) chocolates from a family member, and I think I know how to put ’em to good use. Not that they’re not good on their own, but seriously…it’s a huge box. I’m really excited to get some of the dark chocolate with the peeps…yum. I also like the splash of color they add. So fun!

    LOVE this for Easter. I think I’m going to put the chocolate on the graham crackers then put them in the oven JUST LONG ENOUGH for the chocolate to START to melt, take them out, then place the peep on top immediately so it stays stuck even once cooled and leave them like that so they look like the first picture rather than squishing them and ruining the cute Easter look by putting another piece of chocolate and graham cracker on top. Can’t wait! (Hopefully my idea works…)!

    I have done this for years but found an oooey gooier shortcut! Instead of peeps and chocolate bars…which i can never get to the right meltiness at the same time…I use the chocolate covered marshmallows. Pop one on a graham cracker, stick it in the microwave, and enjoy!
