Easter Peeps S’mores Dip

This Peeps S’mores Dip couldn’t be any easier to make and is a fun way to serve an Easter or spring season treat for any s’mores fan.

It’s as simple as baking your bunnies or chicks on a bed of chocolate (I love using Hershey’s kisses) to create a delicious dessert of creamy melted candy and sugary sweet, gooey marshmallows; scoop it up with graham crackers or cookies or dip in your favorite fruit.

Ingredients

  • Dark chocolate kisses: You can substitute 4 cups of dark chocolate chips if you don’t have the kisses. 
  • Peep marshmallow bunnies or chicks: You can substitute regular marshmallows, of course, though you won’t get the caramelized sugar top like you do with the peeps. But it will be delicious.
  • Optional foods to dip: Feel free to use your favorite foods for dipping (I like graham crackers, pretzels, and vanilla wafers).

Substitutions and Additions

  • Fun Fillings: When baking these s’mores, you can have fun adding other flavors and candy as you see fit. Some of my favorites include white chocolate chips, a few scoops of peanut butter, chocolate candies, (like Reece’s Pieces, Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Rolos), a layer of Nutella spread on top of the chocolate, or a swirl of caramel.
  • Change The Chicks: You can easily change out the Peeps chicks to suit any holiday. You can find themed Peeps around most holidays. Make this recipe with trees or snowmen for Christmas or pumpkins and ghosts for Halloween. They even have themed peeps like Birthday peeps. You can also use regular marshmallows or theme marshmallows that aren’t Peeps marshmallows to create your own custom dip.
  • Delicious Dippers: This dip goes great with any type of dipping cracker or cookie such as honey graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers, vanilla wafers, teddy grahams, or butter cookies. You can also serve it with fruit such as strawberries or bananas. For a salty and sweet combination you can use Ritz crackers or saltine crackers. Pretzels or pretzel rods are also delicious dippers.

How to Make Peeps S’mores Dip

  1. Spread your unwrapped kisses onto the bottom of your prepared baking dish.
    Pro Tip: You should have enough of them for about two layers of kisses all across the pan. 
    place unwrapped kiss at the bottom of pan
  2. Place the pan in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 3-5 minutes, until the chocolates are shiny and soft throughout.
  3. Arrange the Peeps to cover the chocolate.
    Pro Tip: I like to alternate the colors but you can also do all 1 color or do a gradient of colors. Feel free to have fun with it.

  4. Place back in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until the tops of the peeps start turning golden brown.

Tips

  • This dip is best when served immediately, while the chocolate and marshmallows are still warm and gooey!

  • This recipe is a perfect way to feed a crowd. I love serving the dip on a platter surrounded by a variety of dipping options and letting people dip in.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: You can store your Peeps S’mores Dip, covered, for 3-5 days in the refrigerator, however it is best warm and fresh.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long can I leave out this s’mores dip?

As with most foods, you should use a 2-hour mark as a guide to make sure bacteria doesn’t begin to grow. If you want to leave it out longer, you will want to reheat it. Just pop it back in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until it is melty again.

What is the best baking dish for this recipe?

Any shallow oven-safe dish will work for this recipe. Use for a cast-iron skillet for a rustic presentation, a glass pie plate, or you can opt for a white round baking dish for an elegant and effortless look. 

Is this recipe only for Easter?

No, this recipe is not only for Easter! You can make this dip year-round, and simply swap the colors and shapes of the marshmallows for whatever holiday you’re celebrating. Did you know that Peeps makes Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, even Fourth Of July marshmallows? Rainbow colors work great too to make a unicorn dip!
