One of my family’s favorite pastimes is sitting by the fire in our backyard fire pit. Part of our fire ritual is making s’mores. I saw a pin that used Peeps instead of marshmallows in the s’more. Brilliant! I knew my girls would love this idea. I’m not a peep fan, myself, so I was a bit skeptical. It turns out that they were really good cooked up and the s’more tasted just the same. I have a Tupperware full of s’more ingredients on hand at all times since we make them a lot, especially in the summer. The only ingredient I was missing was the peeps, so I picked some blue bunny Peeps up at the store.
The entire family loved this activity. My 4-year-old enjoyed roasting the Peep (and eating them). My 19 month old got a taste of her first Peep and she came back for seconds. My husband (not a big sweet person) loved it, too! Overall, I’d say these were a hit, and easy too.

Substitutions: The link shows duck peeps, but I used bunny peeps. I wish I would have gotten more than one color … maybe next time!
Time: It only takes a few minutes to roast a marshmallow!
