It's exactly what you think it is. I did it. And I'm not ashamed. I just hope you won't judge me too harshly. Because, well, I toasted those cute little yellow Peeps.
And it was AWESOME. I'm not even kidding...they were the *BEST* s'mores I've ever tasted. And I'm a s'mores connoisseur. I think it was because the sugar coating caramelized...much like the topping of a Creme Brulee. It was an entirely pleasant surprise. (By the way, I made a Creme Brulee cheesecake for my cousin's birthday party last night, lest you think I'm getting too redneck for this blog. Plus, I just used the word "lest.")
Yes, that is peanut butter you see smeared on top of the graham cracker. Which is my mother's totally fantabulous addition to The S'more. And since we don't have Hershey bars lying around the house at any given time, we usually use chocolate chips. What you see here is a mixture of milk chocolate, semi-sweet, and white chocolate chips. (The butterscotch ones are also a crowd pleaser.)
What a quick dessert! And now you won't have a zillion cupcakes lying around, being all left-over and begging to be eaten tomorrow. Word to the wise.
And maybe the Peeps will be the only ones who need to apply a little cocoa butter for those embarrassing stretch marks. Here's hoping.
If you need this recipe written out, word for word, and a printable link created, you just let me know. ;) In the meantime, you might want to stock up on some Peeps. At half price.
Hope you had a Happy Easter! Alright, back to tea party planning...and praying for no tornadoes this time. You can pray, too. I'd really appreciate it. ;)
