Marshmallow Peeps Truffle Brownies

A lot of people hate Peeps. I know a guy who is actually afraid of them! I like Peeps, but prefer mine to be hardened and stale by about 2-3 weeks. The crunch is amazing, try it sometime. It’s weird the things you pick up from your family, thanks Dad! Speaking of which these were adapted from Grandmaman’s cookout brownies. =)


  • 1 box truffle brownie mix (Trader Joe’s are dairy-free!)
  • 14 Marshmallow Peeps, cut in half (I went the decapitation way)
  • 2 T buttery sticks
  • 2 oz. baking chocolate
  • 1 T water
  • 1 T maraschino cherry juice
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar

Mix brownies according to package directions. Bake as directed and 5 minutes before the time is up lay Peeps across the top. Continue baking until the marshmallows are slightly brown. Let cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting melt the butter and chocolate together. Remove from stove and stir in water, cherry juice, and sugar. Mix well and drizzle over/douse brownies =)
