I decided to make brownies for Easter dessert. As I mixed the batter, I started to think of how to make the brownies more festive. I have various kinds of sprinkles and was about to root through my baking things to decide which to use when my thoughts turned to those sugar-sprinkled staples of the American Easter basket: Peeps. I thought they would go well in the brownies. I considered cutting the Peeps with kitchen shears and pushing pieces into the batter. However, when I asked my kids if they would donate their Peeps to the cause and my youngest suggested that I shove entire peeps into the batter. I did and this is what happened.
Step 1: Prepping
Brownie mix prepared according to directions and poured into prepared pan*
*Make sure to grease everything well so the Peeps come off later. I used my favorite divided brownie baking pan which is certainly not a requirement but kind of nice for determining optimum placement of peeps.
Step 2: Into the Inferno
Bake according to package instructions. The Peeps will inflate and begin to brown before finally collapsing.
Allow to cool before cutting into pieces.
