Welcome to the peep show, or should I say, the S’meep Show. I am going to let the pictures speak for themselves: 

1.) The goods.

   To make s’meeps — a s’more made with Peeps — we required graham cracker squares, Hershey’s chocolate bars and an assortment of brightly-colored Peeps with which to experiment. Which shapes melt the best? Do the different colors taste differently? Can a s’meep be too far gone (i.e. burnt marshmallow syndrome). These were all very important variables driving our research. 

2.) The first trial.

Kitchen area begins to smell like that top of creme brule — heat-fired carmelized sugar-topping deliciousness. We realize that the pink chick peeps expanded in the toaster oven after just 3-5 minutes. The chocolate is gooey and melty, t00.

3.) The control: Bunny Peeps.

Which obviously were as successful as the classic yellow, or any of the colors, for that matter, of any of the bird peeps. … 

4.) The “Can You Resist This” factor:

 If this doesn’t look absolutely scrumptious, then I blame the poor quality of my iPhone camera, because in actuality, I can’t think of one person who wouldn’t try (and love) this amazing love child of two classic, kitschy, brilliant bits of American food culture. 

COST: $n/a
PREP TIME: bedtime for this girl.

— The inspiration for this adventure came from this Serious Eats post: How to Make S’Meeps: S’mores plus Peeps.
