This Peeps S’mores Treat Is One Of The Coolest Looking Desserts We’ve Seen

Easter season is officially upon us.  That means bunnies and candy and more specifically… Peeps. The folks at Delish took that popular Easter candy that everyone loves and created a mesmerizing dessert that tastes as good as it looks.

To make this, you will spread chocolate chips evenly across the bottom of skillet. Then pour warmed heavy cream over the chocolate chips.  Then top with your favorite color combination of Peeps. Finally, bake in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit until the Peeps brown (around 8 minutes).

With Easter just around the corner, stores are starting to stock their aisles with all those classic holiday candies. One of the most popular and famous of the Easter candies is the Peep. This sugar coated marshmallow candy has a love / hate relationship with consumers.

Some absolutely love them while others can’t stand the site of the little duckies and bunnies.
