I don’t know about you, but I end up with tons of leftover candy after pretty much every holiday. Easter is no exception. I’m lucky enough to come from a home where there is no shortage of sweets and my mom still gives me an Easter basket every year. It always makes for a really fun holiday at my parents’ house, and I end up going home with a huge bag of candy. This year I thought why not re-purpose all that Easter candy into Peeps s’mores?! Even better, take it up a notch and layer them with a couple classic Cadbury Creme Eggs. Are you drooling yet?
Seriously, I love s’mores. I don’t love marshmallows very much by themselves, but I absolutely love them in s’more form. Cadbury Creme Eggs and Peeps are a staple in any Easter basket, so I figured this is the perfect time to share. Even after Easter, you can still enjoy a spring treat in as little at five minutes!
- 1 Peep (the bunnies smoosh better!)
- 1 Cadbury Creme Egg
- 2 graham crackers
Line a baking sheet with foil and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place a Peep on top of one graham cracker (inside) and bake for about 3 minutes until the Peep has puffed up and spread out with a little browning on the sides. I like to use the bunny Peeps if you have them because they’re flatter – the chicks are too round to smoosh. While it bakes, cut two Cadbury eggs in half (longside) with a sharp knife. Take the Peeps out of the oven and immediately place the four pieces of Cadbury eggs on top of the marshmallow. Let sit for a moment as the chocolate begins to melt, and squish down the top graham cracker and admire the chocolate and marshmallow as it oozes out the sides.
If you like the crackers a bit more toasted, you can leave the top graham cracker in the oven as well with the chocolate on that side. Personally, I preferred a less baked cracker, but this method gives the chocolate more time to melt in the oven.
Happy Easter! Enjoy!
