The “I Forgot To Make Dessert” Easter Savior
Only three ingredients required.
Sure, glazed hams and traditional side dishes are perennial favorites, but dessert is arguably the best part of the Easter meal. Homemade treats like carrot cake and colorful egg-shaped cookies make it hard for diners to not look forward to the end of the main course. (There’s always room for a slice of coconut cake.) Family and friends are gathered together to celebrate the Easter holiday, so why not end the occasion on an especially sweet note?
Did you forget that you had dessert duty this year? Fear not! There’s a quick-and-easy, last-minute recipe for you: Smore’s Peepza. It requires 15 minutes and three ingredients, one of which is everyone’s favorite Easter candy—Peeps. These colorful marshmallow chicks cost only a few dollars, making this budget-friendly treat all the more appealing. Smore’s Peepza can be made in the morning before church, or you could even prepare it afterwards before heading to your Easter lunch.
You’ll need a refrigerated pizza crust, Nutella, and Peeps in a variety of colors. Start by spreading the pizza crust on a greased sheet pan, and then bake at 400°F for 10 minutes. Spread 8 to 10 tablespoons of Nutella on top of the baked pizza crust. Top with Peeps, alternating colors until crust is covered. Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven for a gooey, chocolaty, colorful dessert both kids and adults will love.
Smore’s Peepza can also be prepared ahead of time. Bake the pizza crust, and top it with Nutella and Peeps before your gathering. Because this dessert is best when served straight out of the oven, pop in the Peepza for the final 5 minutes when your crowd is ready to dig into dessert. Everyone will be asking for another slice of this pastel-colored Easter treat.
