I live for mashmallow peeps this time of year. But not year round the way some people do. I understand mad love for marshmallow, and Peeps, for me, are a reminder of my childhood Easters. So in trying to find something to do with all those peeps we bought (besides eat too many) we made one of the best desserts I’ve had in a long time for our Easter lunch.
Beck lined up the one on the left. I made mine on the right. In case you were wondering.
Peeps S’mores Ingredients
Take a pan and spread peanut butter on the bottom. We used round pans just cuz.
Now sprinkle chocolate chips over that. How many is up to you. We covered the pan with a thin layer. You could go wild if you wanted.
Cover the pan with Peeps.
Realize you have too many Peeps because you bought out Target last week and make another pan. This is how Beck got to “experiment”.
When you are ready to bake, keep an eye on them – you’ll need their heads to toast a little until it’s all melted.
Scoop it up with a graham cracker
Or get more traditional and make a S’mores sandwich! Since Peeps are a year round thing now, you’ve got a dish for ALL the holidays!
Once it’s hot and melted, remember to share. That’s the hardest part of the whole dessert. Or ‘zerts as Beck likes to call them. Gotta have our ‘zerts.
Can’t make it now?
