Have you ever wondered what happens when you bake marshmallows for a long period of time? Well, they disappear. They melt into little extra pockets of sugar and do absolutely nothing for the dessert. Total bummer because these Peeps would have been beautiful to cut into!
I loooveeee Peeps. Marshmallows covered in sanding sugar? What’s not to like? I’m partial to the bunny ones over the chicks because of the marshmallow to sugar ratio. The more sugar the better! You can even pick which colors you like better to match, well… your mood? I did Laker colors for their recent win against the Hornets. Talk about a comeback.
Peeps should probably be saved for topping brownies at the end. You could even throw them on for the last couple of minutes of baking and let them melt a little bit. That way, they don’t disappear into the batter and you’ll get to keep those beautiful colors on your brownies.
Call me lazy, but I used a boxed mix for this. I can’t help my love for boxed brownies! Minimal work with maximum results.
The tops of the marshmallows kind of stayed. Sort of. You can see the color peeping (like my pun, there?) through.
Oh, how I could go for a bite right about now. Just look at that crackly top and fudgy center!
This view above has got to be one of my favorite things in life. Leftover brownie batter and getting to lick the wooden spoon? Pure happiness, I tell ya.
