The first time I ever had S'mores was on a girl scout camping trip with my daughters' troop. We had a nice camp fire going at the state park and we were all looking forward to toasting marshmallows. The troop leader said we were going to have S'mores. I said what's a S'more? She couldn't believe I never had S'mores."We'll girls, were going to have to make Mrs. West a S'more." The girl scouts proceeded to roast their marshmallows. While the marshmallows were still warm, they sandwiched a layer of chocolate and toasted marshmallows between two graham crackers. Oh boy, were they delicious! The warm melted chocolate and toasted marshmallow with the crunch of graham cracker.
Easter chick Peeps Skillet S'mores have brought this nostalgic delicious dessert to a whole new level for Easter. Enjoy these Skillet S'mores anytime, there's no need for a fire and they can be made in a matter of minutes. Whether you're feeding a crowd or entertaining friends this simple, fast recipe is a fun, colorful sweet treat that will conjure up nostalgic memories.
- Peeps. Different colors make this Easter desert fun and festive.
- Chocolate bars or chocolate chips (I used Hershey's chocolate eggs and chocolate bars).
- Your favorite graham crackers for dipping
- Cast iron skillet. (I recommend cast iron because it will keep your chocolate warm longer).
- A spoon (for mixing chocolate until melted)
Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet on your cook top. Remove skillet form the heat, layer your choice of chocolate chips or your favorite chocolate chopped up into small pieces into the bottom of the skillet.
Then place a single layer of Peeps on top of the slightly melted chocolate.
Finish off by baking at 450 until peep marshmallows are soft and gooey. If you like caramelized marshmallows like I do, briefly roast under broiler until desired.
Use graham crackers for dipping, using a spoon to scoop this Easter Peep treat is also helpful especially if you caramelized your marshmallows like I did. Serve Peeps Skillet S'mores right away while warm.
I think it's time to invite the girl scouts back, now that their all grown up!
Mmmmm yummy! Happy Easter!
Do you like your Peeps fresh and soft right out of the box or do you like your Peeps stale and firm?
