Peeps S'mores


This is the first in a series of blogs for Easter. I love both s'mores and peeps, so I knew this would be something I would have to try for Easter when I saw it months ago here. S'mores in the microwave aren't quite as good as making them at a bonfire, but this was still good. The color was really good in the s'mores, and they were really sugary. The peeps were also the perfect size to fit on one graham cracker square.

If you are strictly vegetarian and don't eat marshmallows, here are some ideas for substitutes:
You can buy vegan marshmallows, or
you can make your own.

Ingredients:
-graham crackers
-chocolate
-peeps
I bought 3 different colored peeps.
Add the chocolate to the graham cracker like you
would to make a normal s'more.
Top with a peep.
Put in the microwave for 15 seconds.
The marshmallows expand.
The marshmallows deflate when you get them out of
the microwave.
Top with another graham cracker.
Similar to regular s'mores.

These were easy to make a lot of, and lots of s'mores come in a pack. This would be a good way to use up all the s'mores you have for Easter. They are good warm, but they can also be stored and eaten for a snack later.

  1. Hi Becky, Peeps and marshmallows are not vegetarian, they contain bovine gelatin.

    1. Hi, I'm not actually a vegetarian, my co-blogger is though, so I'm still learning what is vegetarian and what isn't. Here is a good vegan substitute for marshmallows that I found that you can buy: http://www.sweetandsara.com/, or here are some instructions to make your own: http://www.inhabitots.com/how-to-make-homemade-vegan-marshmallows/ . I'll make a note of that on the blog. Thanks for commenting and thanks for letting me know!
