Simple Easter S’mores Dessert

This Peeps S’mores recipe is a simple spin on the campfire classic and is a quick and easy way to make all of your sandwiches at once in the oven.

Skip the bonfire and bake your s’mores indoor any time of year, or use your leftover marshmallow Peeps to create the perfect Easter party sweet treat; it’s a fun way to feed a crowd.

Indoor s’mores are so easy to bake on a sheet pan: simply top a graham cracker with chocolate and a bunny, put them in the oven to broil until slightly brown, press another graham cracker square over the marshmallow to make your sandwiches, and you’ve created the best batch of delicious Easter dessert without a fire!

Ingredients

  • Graham crackers: Feel free to use use honey, cinnamon or even chocolate graham crackers in this recipe. 
  • Hershey’s Symphony Chocolate Bar
  • Easter Bunny Peeps: You can use chicks or eggs if you prefer.

Substitutions and Additions

  • Seasonal S’mores: You can easily change out the Peeps bunnies to suit any holiday or season. Make this recipe with trees or snowmen for Christmas during the winter, or pumpkins and ghosts for Halloween. They even have themed peeps like Birthday Peeps.
  • More Marshmallows: Instead of Peeps, feel free to make your s’mores with any kind of marshmallow. There are “Stacker-Mallows” which are wide, flat marshmallows made for s’mores, regular marshmallows, jumbo-sized marshmallows, mini marshmallows, colored marshmallows, special flavored marshmallows, etc.
  • Change The Chocolate: You can use any milk or dark chocolate for this recipe. Dark chocolate helps even out the sweetness a little but it doesn’t melt as evenly as milk chocolate so the outside may be runny when the inside is still hard.  
  • Savory S’mores: Instead of using the classic graham cracker to make these s’mores, you can swap the sweet cookie for savory Saltines, Ritz crackers, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, Pringles, or Potato chips.
  • Sweet S’mores Swaps: Instead of using graham crackers to make these s’mores, you can use your favorite cookies, like Oreos, Fudge-Striped Cookies, Chip’s Ahoy Cookies, etc. to make your sandwich.

How to Make Peeps S’mores

  2. Place 2 rectangles of chocolate on each graham cracker square.
    place chocolate piece on top of graham crackers

Tips

  • You can make as many s’mores at once as you can fit on your cookie sheet!
  • S’mores are best when served immediately, while the chocolate and marshmallows are still warm and gooey!
  • I like to line the bottom of my baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: These Peeps S’mores are best enjoyed warm, right after they are prepared. If you do have leftovers, be sure to wrap them well or store them in an airtight container at room temperature. They will last 1-2 days and can be eaten at room temperature (obviously the chocolate won’t be soft).
  • To Reheat: You can be reheat the s’mores in the same method as originally used, either in the oven or microwave.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best chocolate to use for s’mores?

If you are looking for classic s’mores flavor you will want to use milk chocolate. Dark chocolate helps even out the sweetness a little but it doesn’t melt as evenly as milk chocolate, so the outside may be runny when the inside is still hard. 
You can also mix it up and use white chocolate, Nutella, or Reeses peanut butter cups.

Do I have to use bunny Peeps for this recipe?

While I love using Peeps for this recipe because they are colorful and fun for Easter, you can easily swap them for any holiday, like Christmas Trees, Ghosts or any other Peeps shape that you prefer.
You can buy Peeps at a huge discount after most holidays and stock them to make these delicious S’mores any time.
Peeps work just like marshmallows in this recipe so if you can’t find Peeps or don’t have any left after the holidays, feel free to substitute regular marshmallows or even mix it up and use a jumbo marshmallow or some mini-marshmallows to make a quick and easy s’more. 

What happens to Peeps when they are heated?

When these Peeps are broiled or heated in the microwave, the outside gets a nice caramelized flavor like crème brûlée and the inside is gooey and soft. Delicious!

Can I freeze my Peeps S’mores?

No, you cannot freeze Peeps S’mores. When you put a marshmallow in the freezer, the water freezes even though it is part of the gel, causing the marshmallow to become hard. When you heat it up again, the water melts and the marshmallow softens.
