Dorky title, I know. Sorry.
In my previous post, I gave you guys a glimpse into my DIY project for the week. I had high aspirations to do something awesome but this was all I got around to!
First, I have to say that the end result was delicious, however the photos are not so pretty. I fully admit it's because I take all pictures on my iPhone because I can never find my camera. But it's also because I used yellow peeps (the OG's), they didn't make a very pretty end result. They ended up kind of scramble egg-looking... Anyways, I am apologizing in advance...
This particular DIY was inspired by this pin and the free Peeps I got in my Pop Sugar Box.
The ingredients are simple:
2. Graham Crackers
3. Chocolate (I used Hershey Kisses b/c we went a little crazy at
Costco a few weeks back and thought we needed 5 lbs of Kisses.
BTW, NO ONE needs that!)
Once you have everything together, put the chocolate on one piece of graham cracker and microwave for about 30 seconds - or until the chocolate gets all melty. I do this in 10 second intervals so it doesn't burn.
Next, put the Peep on top of the chocolate and microwave for about 10 seconds. It will get really puffy. I tried to take a picture of it but it didn't work so well.
As soon as you take the plate out of the microwave, put the remaining graham cracker on top, flatten and enjoy!
See...looks gross but I promise it was good!
I make smores a lot and these were pretty fantastic in comparison. The sugar adds an extra sweetness and crunch that regular smores don't have. If/when you do make them, have some napkins handy...these babies are M-E-S-S-Y!
Have you ever tried something different with an old classic? Are you a Peeps fan or not?
