Peeps S’mores Dip

Please share

This Peeps s’mores dip is a perfect way to put that extra Easter candy to good use. The melty chocolate and gooey marshmallows are just begging for you to dig in with graham crackers.

If you don’t have extra Easter candy, this is a good excuse to get more! Of course you can make it other times of the year as well, but the Peep smore dip is a perfect excuse to turn whatever is left in the Easter basket into a fun dessert dip.

Use chocolate bars, chocolate eggs, or even chocolate chips to make the melted chocolate layer. Cover them with colorful Peeps marshmallows and broil it until they are golden and gooey.

All you need are some graham crackers to dig in with! This sweet dip; is one everyone is going to love.

All the Easter Candy

If you are anything like me, you have a love/hate relationship with Easter candy.  At first, like in any new relationship, it is all love.

Chocolate eggs and jellybeans, where have you been all my life?  I have missed you so.  Please come around more often.

Arranging Peeps over melted chocolate and milk mixture.

Then Eater comes and the candy multiplies.  Why yes, I will have another peanut butter egg.  Thanks for asking!  Then by a couple days after Easter, all your favorites are gone.

How does a whole bag of those mini eggs disappear into thin air like that?!  (Don’t judge… they are so little and soooooo good!)

By midweek after Easter I just can’t with the candy any more.  WHY IS THERE SO MUCH?!

How did it get to be everywhere?  When will it be gone?

For Pete’s sake, shorts season is right around the corner.  Why have you forsaken me Easter Bunny?!

Recipe Alterations and Substitutions

If you don’t have any plain chocolate candy to melt down, you can always use chocolate chips. In fact, semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips would help to keep the dip from getting too sweet.

Alternatively, you can use regular marshmallows instead of Peeps. Either way, they will be gooey and delicious even if the regular marshmallows are less colorful and cute.

Graham cracker in the melted chocolate and marshmallows.

You can use animal crackers, vanilla wafers, or even pretzels as dippers instead of graham crackers. Or use Teddy Grahams if you want to take the cuteness factor up another notch.

You don’t have to use a cast iron skillet for this recipe, any oven safe skillet will do. Or you can put the melted chocolate mixture in a pie plate or square baking dish and top with the Peeps.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you store leftover Peep smore dip?

Any extra dip can be put in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Just warm back up for a few seconds in the microwave before enjoying.

Can you use Peeps for smores?

If you are in the mood for a classic s’more, you can use Peeps instead of regular marshmallows. Just keep a close eye on the Peep when you roast it as that sugary coating can burn easily.

Pinning to my Easter fun board! What is it with the Easter candy? I just can't even eat one more piece of candy either! Well. Maybe I can inhale one more.. Can't wait to try this, Carlee! It looks like a lot of fun!

Luckily we are now pretty much done with it. I think there is one more Cadbury Egg downstairs. I think at this point it has become a relic of the holiday that nobody dares destroy ;-) Oh well, it's almost birthday time so a new batch of sweets will take hold soon!

Thank you, Nikki! Peeps are one of those foods that I like better toasty and gooey! Plus it is hard to go wrong with melted chocolate.
