Peep Stuffed Brownies

Thanks to the Baltimore Sun, we can stuff more sugar into sugar and have a great big sugary-feast! Your “Get Fit For Summer” routine starts…tomorrow!

Sarah Kickler Kebler quips about the “recipe”:

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.


  • 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.
