Yeah I know, this would have been a great blog post PRIOR to Easter, but it wasn’t until two days ago when I was at Target and saw that all their Easter candy was 50% off that I thought about how awesome some Peeps s’mores would be.
After all, I’ve already made deep fried s’mores, s’moreos and s’mores quesadillas, so why not try another s’mores related creation? What’s even better is that instead of regular Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars I found some half priced Hershey’s Easter bunny shaped chocolate to use along with the Peeps I purchased.
Generally I’m not a big fan of Peeps when they’re on their own, but in s’mores form I actually like them a lot better. Their sugary exterior makes these s’mores a lot sweeter than traditional s’mores while adding a nice contrast in texture at the same time.
If you’re looking to make your own Peeps s’mores I’m willing to bet that Target (as well as most other stores that sell Easter candy) still have some available at some pretty deep discounts. In fact, by now the markdowns are probably even more than 50%. I might have to go buy some more!

I LOVE Peeps! BUT I never thought about Peep S’mores! Yum! You can get Peeps pretty much year ’round these days… I’ve seen Santa Peeps, Snowman peeps, Black Cat Peeps. And I alwas have a box or two in my drawer for Peep emergencies…

I know, it’s so crazy to me how they sell different peeps all year round now. Back when I was a kid I feel like the only time to get them was around Easter.

Been making these with my wife for years now.
The BEST part is, as you roast them over the fire, the eyes go all bug-eyed.

We did something similar, but used a homemade salted blueberry jam instead of chocolate. Wow, was it amazing! Much better than I would have expected.
