Recipe: Peep-Stuffed Brownies

Recipe: Peep-Stuffed Brownies

I have no CSA recipes to report so far this week. I'm still struggling with pine mouth, so I wasn't feeling particularly like experimenting this weekend.

But I did stumble across this recipe, and before I knew what I was doing, I impulse-bought a box of brownie mix and some Peeps to try to make these Peep-Stuffed Brownies.

Calling this a "recipe" is really an overstatement. It's basically a gimmick, but it's funny, and it's sugary, and it's chocolate and marshmallow, so how can you go wrong?

The original recipe cut the Peeps in half and used only three. I had a ton, so I put in six un-beheaded Peeps. In the oven, they puffed up, as seen above, giving the pan a "zombie Peeps arising from a chocolaty grave" kind of look.

After they were removed from the oven, the Peeps deflated, and the marshmallow spread out. These were no longer cute; the Peeps no longer identifiable. But they were yummy, in an Easter-basket sugar-coma sort of way.

Makes: 6 brownies (my brownie mix said it made 16; I think 9-12 is probably a more accurate count than either 16 or 6)

1 box of brownie mix (+ ingredients listed on box)
3 Peeps – cut in half (I used 6, not cut in half)


1. Preheat oven according to package directions.  Mix brownies according to package directions.
2. Spray an 8×8 oven proof dish with cooking spray. Place 3/4 of the brownie mix into pan. Press peeps down into brownie mixture {1/2 peep per brownie section} Spread remaining 1/4 of brownie mixture on top.
3. Bake brownies according to package directions. Allow to cool completely prior to slicing.

Notes: Make sure you really grease the pan well. Even buttered, my pan was reluctant to give these brownies up in one piece.
