Leftover marshmallow peeps easy recipe
Peeps and jelly beans are synonymous with Easter, especially if you have kids. Whether you do or not, all of the big kids will love this and it makes good use of leftovers…which I love!
If you wait long enough or are a holiday procrastinator (as I often am), you are likely to find that the Easter candy deeply discounted on sale. Peeps are such yummy and fun marshmallow treats and they are now available as not just Easter peeps, but Christmas peeps and probably some other holiday peeps that I don’t even know about. Gather up any leftover Easter marshmallow peeps and try this recipe before they go stale!
- Split a graham cracker into two pieces.
- Place a Peep on top of each half.
- Heat under broiler for a couple of minutes. In my case I used the toaster oven broiler for a small quantity.
- Remove and place one square of chocolate on top of each Peep. The heat from the marshmallow Peep will melt the chocolate sufficiently.
- Top each with the other half of graham cracker and press lightly to flatten.
- Wrap with plastic wrap or foil to save until ready to devour.

You can do these outdoors on the grill or the firepit as you would with a traditional smore. Serve and enjoy!

How clever!! Peeping Smores! I don’t like to eat Peeps but they are so fun to decorate with but always toss them later. This will be a good way to recycle Peeps and give my grandson something fun to eat. Thanks for the idea. Have a lovely week! XOXO
Oh you are just the sweetest Cecelia! Kids really seem to love Peeps and it’s fun to get creative with them. xo
