This past weekend my family had our first campfire of the year (hooray for warm weather)! My favorite part of campfires are hands down, without a doubt, s’mores (chocolate AND gooey, melty sugar? yes please). When it comes to making s’mores I have very strong opinions on proper assembly, two marshmallows, and a half a bar of chocolate (don’t even try that three square nonsense) are absolute necessities, I take my s’mores VERY seriously! However, this weekend I strayed from my go to, and used marshmallow peeps in place of plain marshmallows. The result? Delciousness! The sugar crystals on the outside of the peeps harden slightly, tasting almost like the burnt sugar top of creme brulee.
Break a graham cracker in half and top one half with half of a Hershey’s chocolate bar. Roast your peeps over the fire until they’re swollen and slightly browned all round.
Once your peeps are done place them on top of the chocolate.
Cover the peeps with the second half of a graham cracker, and enjoy!
