Let's take a look down memory lane and revisit one of my favorite Easter-time snacks. Those precious little marshmallow birds that get stocked to the shelves each year. One of the things I eagerly await. Here's a neat way to turn them into a delicious, fingerlickin' snack. Sugary, sweetness. I snatch up one of every color. Or at least what's available at the time. A classic campfire treat turned into a holiday appetizer (?) or dessert (?). Whichever one you choose it's too tempting not to try.
I remember trying this little s'more concoction several years ago after much trial and error. All I got to say is...gotta love the microwave. :) The oven tends to burn the sugar. By using the microwave you still get the bright sugar color, but with the inner melted goodness.
You know you want to try this!
Peeps (any color/bird or rabbit)
Hershey's milk chocolate bar (divided into squares)
Honey Graham Cracker (halved)
Take one half of the graham cracker and place a peep on top.
Microwave for 20 seconds in two 10-second intervals. The peep will puff up like a balloon, but won't explode.
Remove the microwave and add a nice chunk of chocolate on top then place the other half of the graham cracker. The heat from peep will instantly melt the chocolate into liquid goo.
Warning: This snack will get messy, so have plenty of napkins on hand.
