Easter S'mores

Easter Peeps are as abundant as tulips and daffodils at the moment.  Personally, I've never been a fan of the sugary sweet candies, but somehow I can't resist putting the colorful creatures in my kids Easter baskets.  Yes, even now that 2 of them are in their twenties, the little chicks and bunnies are still tucked into their basket of goodies.  I usually find them a month or two later, buried in the back of the pantry, uneaten, unwanted.  But now that I can turn those peeps into irresistible s'mores, I don't think these little guys will be hanging around too long.  After all, who can resist gooey marshmallow and melted chocolaty goodness.  You don't even need a fire, make these in the microwave!

These Easter s'mores, or maybe we should call them s'meeps, are a great way to make those cute little chicks and bunnies disappear.

3 graham crackers
3 1/2 ounce chocolate bars (or you can use leftover pieces of Easter bunny)
3 Peeps

Arrange 3 graham cracker halves on a plate.  Top each with a 1/2 ounce chocolate bar.  Place in microwave and cook on High for about 20 seconds until chocolate starts to melt.  Place one peep on top of each piece of chocolate.  Microwave on High and additional 10 seconds.  Be careful and don't leave in longer than 10 seconds.  Peeps grow to giant proportions when microwaving.

Remove from microwave and top with remaining graham cracker halves.
I'll have s'more please :)
