My husband is obsessed with Peeps.   Seriously obsessed.  It seems as though the last 5 years that I’ve been seriously blogging, my Peeps baking game has been brought up a notch because of it.  The Funfetti Peeps Cupcakes and S’mores Peeps Pops from previous years are two of my most popular Peeps posts!

With my big move from Germany to the USA, I’ve found that I have less time and energy for big, extensive baking projects.  So this year, I’m focusing on simple, yet still delicious recipes & projects to share with you.  Thus, the Peeps White Chocolate S’mores were born!

These s’mores are so simple to make.  You start out with a ton of peeps, white chocolate, graham crackers and a clean baking sheet.  Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.

Line  the baking sheet with halved graham crackers.

Since white chocolate bunnies are everywhere this year, I decided that instead of spending a ton of money on bars of white chocolate, I purchased an Easter bunny and cut it up into pieces.  I’m all about spending less money on desserts!

Simply, chop the bunny up into tiny chunks and shards and evenly distribute it onto the graham crackers.

In a 350F preheated oven, pop the white chocolate and graham crackers into the oven for one minute.  You want to get the chocolate soft and a bit melty.

Press another graham cracker onto the top of each soft Peep and press until the Peep oozes out the side and is short enough to fit in your mouth.

With so many new Peeps flavors, it was hard to choose which was my favorite.  I used Vanilla Delight, Party Cake, Raspberry Delight,  Strawberry Delight and Classic.  Hands down my favorite was the Raspberry Delight with Vanilla being a close second.

The tangy flavor of the Raspberry Delight Peep paired with the sweet white chocolate and the crunch of the graham cracker was divine!   If you love Peeps and if you love s’mores, you’re going to die for this dessert!

S’mores Peeps Pops

S'mores Peeps Pops by JavaCupcake.com

Last week I participated in the Spring Hop Along Peeps party with 22 other amazeball bloggers and I collected a LOT of Peeps to prepare for it.  So now, I’ve got DOZENS of Peeps and needed something to make with them – S’mores Peeps Pops!  Seriously can’t go wrong with dipping marshmallows in chocolate and crushed graham crackers!

{Fun for the kids} S'mores Peeps Pops by JavaCupcake.com

I had a few helpers with these yummy treats!  My daughter and a few of the neighborhood kids came over to help decorate some of the Peeps.  We had graham crackers, sprinkles, jimmies and little baby chicks to sprinkle all over the chocolate.   Afterwards, one of the parents told me they thought these were such a great idea that next year for Easter they were going to decorate Peeps instead of eggs!  I think I started a new family tradition!

After the chocolate hardened on these pops, I packaged them up in treat bags and tied them with a piece of string and sent them to school with my daughter to hand out in one of her classes.  They make the perfect individual treat!

Enjoy!
