Christmas S'mores: Great Recipe to Make with the kids!6:08:00 PM
I found this yummy, delicious and fun Peep S'mores recipe around Easter time on Recipezaar.com. You use Marshmallow Peeps, HONEY MAID graham crackers and melted chocolate. (Using Honey Made or name brand graham crackers is crucial, as I tried to use store brand once before and they were all broken before I opened them and didn't break into nice even pieces like I need them to).
They were so good on Easter, that I figured why not make them again for Christmas?? (I am so glad they make Peeps for other holidays besides Easter now, I LOVE them!)!
(Not sure why I took a picture of the parchment paper as it is not needed, but can be used to place the s'mores on when you're done making them.)
For the Christmas tree peeps, I used a whole half of a square of graham cracker, because the peep is so fat that it could barely fit on the smaller piece--but for the Snowmen, I used a quarter of a piece of graham cracker.
You can also take the extra chocolate and drizzle over the tops to
Ingredients(Directly from Recipezaar.com)
1 (11 1/2 ounce) package of hershey's milk chocolate chips
3 (16 count) packages marshmallow peeps
1 (14 1/2 ounce) package of honey maid graham crackers
1 Take apart all Peeps from packages and break graham crackers into 48 fourths.
2 Place graham crackers pieces onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper.
3 Place 3/4 pkg of chocolate chips into a bowl and melt according to instructions on package.
4 Dip the bottom of each Peep bunny into the melted chocolate and place on a piece of graham cracker. Continue to do this until all of the Peeps are used.
5 Put the cookie sheets of Peeps into the refridgerator for 15 minutes so the chocolate can cool and harden.
6 Melt the rest of the chocolate chips and pour the melted chocolate into a plastic zipper bag.
7 Cut a tiny piece off the corner to make the chocolate drizzle.
8 Carefully squeeze the bag to drizzle melted chocolate onto each individual Peep S'more.
9 Place them into the refridgerator again so the chocolate can harden.
10 Peeps S'mores can be eaten at room temperature or warmed up in the microwave for 8 - 10 seconds.
