I am the only person in my house that actually likes Peeps.  This colorful, sugary, over-the-top sweet treat comes around each spring and (although I’m ashamed to admit this) every year I have to try my hardest to avoid them at all costs at the supermarket and the drugstore.  But no one has ever turned down s’mores.  In fact, I don’t know one person who doesn’t love s’mores.  So, when I saw photos of these peeps skillet s’mores circulating the internet, I knew I would end up making them this weekend, for those peeps lovers and haters alike.

Emma doesn’t really like peanut butter, so even though the first recipe I came across included peanut butter, I came across a few others that added warmed whipping cream instead.  The end result is a combination of a few recipes I found online and I chose to mix semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips, because that really just seemed necessary to me.  🙂

Since I never tried these and just stumbled across this recipe, these images are not my own and credit is given below each photo.  I will update with my own photos after this weekend when I make this gooey goodness myself.

  • Graham crackers, for serving
