chocolate and strawberry creme . . . Valentine S'mores

Our kids love PEEPS. Who doesn't, I guess? 

I grew up enjoying the simple bird PEEPS that appeared in stores just before Easter. Do you remember them, too?  

Over the years, I've enjoyed watching them transform from the simple, cute birds to include various shapes and flavors. My mind whirls with ideas when I see them make their debut around the holidays.

So when I saw these adorable PEEP hearts in the market over the weekend, I felt inspired to make Chocolate Strawberry Creme S'mores with my little ones. We had so much fun!

package of Strawberry Creme PEEPS
Chocolate bar 
(Since I planned on eating them too, I bought GOOD chocolate!)
Chocolate graham crackers

Preheat oven to BROIL
Assemble S'mores
Place S'mores on a cookie sheet and broil on a high shelf for 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown
Crack your oven door so that you can watch them!

The dark chocolate and chocolate graham cracker make this S'more special and unique . . . but it's the Strawberry Creme PEEPS that make this fun dessert extra special with its creamy heart topping that pops with hints of strawberry candy. We loved them! 

I can't wait to see what kind of PEEPS we find in stores this Spring!

LET'S STAY in touch!

    These are so cute. I have never bought my little man Peeps before, I never thought about it but now that you say kids love I need to go get him some for V-day!

    1. PEEPS are so fun :0) I put them on top of mugs of hot cocoa instead of marshmallows . . . and they make the cutest S'mores. Happy that you're planning on introducing your little man to them this Valentine's Day.
