Intro: Peeps Smores
After Easter's come and gone, you might find yourself with a basket full of candy. What to do with all that candy! The obvious solution (besides eating it) is to make Peeps Smores.
Peeps Smores (or PeepSmores) combines those chocolate bunny ears with the classic sugary goodness of Easter peeps. While microwaving is the traditional method employed when cooking peeps (for obvious entertainment reasons), roasting them over the open flame of a gas stove provided a much more desirable flavor and consumable texture.
Step 1: Collect Candy
Raid your sister's Easter basket, or head to the local Walgreens for 75% off Easter candy.
This recipe works with pretty much any kind of Peeps (yellow or pink, bunnies or chicks) and chocolate bunnies (peanut butter or caramel filled? Even better).
You will also need to procure some graham crackers, though I bet vanilla wafers or even digestive biscuits would work as well!
Step 2: Behead Your Bunny
Prep your PeepSmores by breaking a graham cracker in half and snapping the ears and/or neck off of your chocolate bunny*.
Gently place the head upon one half of your graham cracker.
*Tiny guillotine optional.
Step 3: Method 1: Nuke Your Peep
Microwaving Peeps is a rite of passage, and really one of the best things you can do with a Peep. One minute is plenty. Make sure you watch the magic as it happens.
Squish your exploded Peep between the bunny headed cracker and the other half of the graham cracker.
Consume immediately or your Peep will turn into some kind of unidentifiable plastic. We could repair space shuttles with this material.
Step 4: Method 2: Roast Your Peep
For a truly tasty PeepSmore, opt for the open-flame roasting of your Peep. It's pretty much just as fun to set your chick on fire as it is to watch it blow up in the microwave, but it smells and tastes way better.
Again, smish your Peep between the chocolate bunny headed cracker and the other half of the graham cracker. You have a larger window of edibility here, so you might want to let it cool down a minute before digging in. Added bonus: the bunny head gets nice and melty the longer you wait.
Happy Easter Candy Day!
