A few days after Easter, after the chocolate bunnies are eaten and all the jelly beans (except the black ones!) are gone, among the plastic Easter grass I’ll usually find a package or two of Peeps.
Don’t get me wrong, we eat marshmallow Peeps like crazy at Easter, but I tend to buy way too many because they are so darn cute! Plus, they come in so many different colors, it’s impossible not to buy at least one package of each!
Peeps have been a tradition at our house since I was a little girl. In fact, my dad would buy a ton of extra packages and put them in his closet until around the 4th
of July when they were nice and stale, just the way he liked them.
Yuck! I am not
a fan of stale marshmallows, so we wanted to find a creative way to use those leftover Peeps while they are nice and fresh. Nature Valley Granola Thins to the rescue in these colorful, yummy Peeps S'mores
These crispy squares come preloaded with chocolate and have a fantastic crunch. When combined with delicious Peeps, you get one colorful tower of s’mores!
All you need to do is take one square of Nature Valley Granola Thins (the Dark Chocolate variety is our favorite!) and put a Peep on top. Microwave for 10-15 seconds.
Add another Nature Valley Granola Thins on top and you’re done!
Dessert in under 30 seconds? We have a new favorite treat at our house! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go buy a few more packages of Peeps…
