Easy Ingredient Swaps For Peeps S’mores Dip
To make this fun Easter treat, you need three things. A meltable gooey filling, peeps marshmallows, and graham crackers. But if you’re missing one of the ingredients, or just want to mix up your flavors, here are a few fast swaps.
Swaps For Graham Crackers
There are so many different things you can dip in this Easter dip! You can even combine a few of these ideas for a fun platter.
- Mini graham cracker cookies – these bunny grahams would be fun!
- Butter cookies or shortbread– growing up my grandma always had these Danish butter cookies
- Sugar wafers – Sugar wafers are available in a few different flavors like vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. I like the vanilla the best myself.
- Cinnamon cookies– Trader Joes has my favorite cinnamon cookies
- Animal crackers– These bug bites cookies are similar and feel very spring.
- Fruit (try banana, apple or strawberries, yum!)
- Golden Oreos – You can use regular Golden Oreos or Easter Egg Oreos if your store has them.
- Butter waffles– You can get butter waffle cookies or just break up waffle ice cream cones in bigger pieces.
Swaps for Peeps
This is the hardest part to swap, because the colorful marshmallows make it feel like easter. But if you’re having trouble finding enough peeps, here are a few ideas.
- Colorful marshmallows– You can often find colorful marshmallows in the baking section, especially in spring and summer but sometimes in the candy aisle too.
- Alternate peeps and marshmallows– If you don’t have enough peeps, you can alternate regular or mini marshmallows. With big regular marshmallows, I like to cut them in half so they aren’t too thick.
- Marshmallow fluff– You can spread a layer of marshmallow fluff on top and decorate with just a few Peeps or top with easter sprinkles after it comes out of the oven.
Swaps For Chocolate Chips
You can swap a few different things for the melted chocolate chips in this recipe. A few of these ideas also work mixed in with a little less chocolate in the pan.
- Any chopped chocolate– Have a few chocolate bars? A giant chocolate Easter Bunny? Any chopped chocolate can be used in the bottom of the pan.
- Butterscotch chips– I like to swap out a cup of these for chocolate
- White chocolate chips– These can swap out cup for cup for chocolate chips. You can also chop white chocolate.
- Peanut Butter– You can add a few tablespoons of peanut butter spread out around the pan. Peanut butter candies mixed in also work just fine.
What Kind Of Pan Should I Use?
You can use any oven-safe dish for this recipe. I like using a glass pie plate. but other dishes work too. You can line the bottom of any dish with parchment paper for easier cleanup.
- A small glass rectangular baking dish
- A brownie pan
- A loaf pan
- A cast-iron oven-safe skillet
Can I Make This Marshmallow Peeps S’mores Dip Creamier?
Adding 1/2 cup of warm heavy whipping cream over the chocolate chips will make your dip even creamier! Use a whisk to blend the chocolate chips into the warm heavy whipping cream, then top with Peeps and bake.
How Long Can I Leave This Peeps Dip Out On The Table?
While most dips you eventually have to worry about if they’ve been out too long, the ingredients in this dip aren’t perishable. No need to refrigerate the leftovers with this dip. (Note- If you add the heavy whipping cream, you will need to refrigerate)
You may need to heat this dip back up again though if you leave it out for a long time. Just pop it back in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until it is melty again.

Is this Peeps S’mores dip only for Easter?
Nope, peeps are available for lots of different holidays and in lots of different shapes. (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, even Fourth Of July has fun themed Peeps.)
You can make this dip year-round, and just change the colors and shapes of the marshmallows for whatever holiday you’re celebrating. Rainbow colors work great to make a unicorn dip!
- 25 Peeps marshmallows
- 3 Cups chocolate chips
- 4-6 Ounces Graham Crackers
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Pour milk chocolate morsels into a round pie plate in an even layer.
- Top milk chocolate with peeps marshmallows.
- Place in oven for 8 to 10 minutes. The chocolate will be melted and the peeps will be slightly golden.
- Serve with graham crackers or your favorite butter cookies.
The amounts for this recipe don't have to be exact for the recipe to be delicious. If you don't have enough peeps marshmallows, you can alternate every other peep with regular marshmallows.
Choose a plain graham cracker or simple cookie to dip, as this baked dessert is already sweet.
For a creamier dip, add warm-up 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream for 30 seconds in the microwave. Pour over chocolate chips in the baking dish, mixing with a whisk. Top with marshmallows and bake for 8-10 minutes until marshmallows are toasty and golden brown.
This dip can sit on a table for a long while. If it begins to become too firm to dip, pop it back in the oven for 2-3 minutes or until melty again.
