Easter has come and gone and my house is filled with candy. I don't know about you, but I like to use all of the leftover holiday candy as soon as possible, otherwise it ends up in a bowl somewhere tempting me for weeks! We decided to get creative with our Easter candy this year and found a new family favorite...Peep S'mores! They are so good. The sugar on the outside of the peeps crystallizes when you melt them over the fire adding a unique crunch. Instead of using a Hershey's candy bar we used crushed up Cadbury Mini-Eggs (my favorite Easter treat). Did you know they make white chocolate mini-eggs? That was a new find to me and I was super excited. They went in my cart instantly.
The littles were in love with the fun colors and ate a lot of the peeps by themselves. That's fine by me - more chocolate for my own s'mores. :)
This was the best way to use up candy lying around our house. I'm sure you could use just about any chocolate candy you have to go inside. Let me know what you use!
1 Graham Cracker (broken in half)
2 Marshmallow Peeps
5 Cadbury Mini Eggs
Crush up Cadbury mini-eggs. I microwaved our bowl for a few seconds because we were using our firepit at home. If you don't have a microwave, just set the bowl close enough to the fire for them to get soft. Roast your marshmallow peeps. Sandwich chocolate eggs and roasted peeps between graham crackers and enjoy!
