Step Up Your S’mores Game with Peeps & Cadbury Eggs [PHOTOS]
Next time you're camping, forget the marshmallow & chocolate bar. Kat has found the holy grail of s'mores and now that Easter is over, you can grab all the stuff while it's on sale!
I was camping this weekend with Shawn in Hoosier National Forest, and we had joked about making s'mores over the campfire, but rather than the traditional boring s'mores, we wanted to step up our game a bit. We brought a package of Peeps and some Cadbury Creme Eggs (and a couple of caramel ones too!) Extra special shout out to Shawn for grabbing the supplies for this after we had joked about trying it!!!
We started by laying everything out - 2 graham crackers, one Cadbury Egg (pictured here in caramel) and 2 Peeps.
Next up, poking those pink little sugar covered confections onto the roasting sticks!
And you roast 'em! I toasted mine until the sugar was starting to brown & crystalize. They are a softer consistency than regular marshmallows, so I was careful not to over do it, to prevent them from sliding off into the fire!
Next up, we layed the perfectly roasted Peeps onto the Cadbury Egg that we had in the middle of the first graham cracker and topped it with the second graham cracker.
At this point the Peeps are nice and hot, so I smashed that second graham cracker down, using the heat from the Peeps to flatten out the Cadbury Egg, distributing chocolate and caramel across the bottom graham cracker.
Next up, was the taste test! Let me just go ahead and tell you, it was incredibly delicious!
That's it. That's how we stepped up our S'mores game, and you can too!
A word of warning: It had been a while since I had eaten Peeps. The sugar will get every where and it may stain your fingers a little bit too.
