Yes. You read that correctly. Peeps. S’Mores. O. M. G.
So, this is an example of my Pinterest wandering bringing me to something ridiculous. You know those posts of cookies stuffed with brownies? Or the Chex mix recipes that shouldn’t really be called a Chex mix anymore because they are 95% candy bar? I thought that this fell into the category, too. But something about it called out to me. Something told me that these needed to be made. So. I did. One more treat to bring to Easter.
The chocolate dipping part was super easy. The chocolate melted very well and looked great on the graham crackers with the Easter-y sprinkles. Very cute already. I set them out so the chocolate could harden.
This is when I realized that the recipe said that you needed to leave your Peeps out so they could get a bit stale for easy cutting. Yep. Definitely read right over that the first time I read the recipe. So, the finished S’mores would have to wait until the next morning – one more thing to try to get done before we left.
The next day: if you are going to do these, please, for your own sanity, let the Peeps harden up for more than one night. Trying to cut these was just silly. So, the finished product is not nearly as cute as I was hoping. (Darn you, Pinterest! One more example of something not turning out as polished and perfect as yours!)
Also, these do not travel well. The chocolate completely melted and stuck to the serving tray. So, they looked a little sad. But…..they taste really yummy! If you happen to have some leftover Peeps from Easter, I recommend giving these a try. Just try not to leave them by the window in the car.
