It didn’t take me long to spot these Peepsters. I have never seen or heard of them until now. Curious as I am, I immediately ripped open the bag to see what they were.
They’re dark (also comes in milk) chocolate bites with a marshmallow flavored creme in the center. The pastel foil wrapping is perfect for your Easter candy dish.
I went online to the Peeps website to see if they had any recommendations for baking with Peepsters. Sure enough, I found a cookie recipe to try.
It’s basically a chocolate chip cookie recipe, but instead of using regular chocolate chips, you replace them with cut up Peepsters.
The inside of the Peepsters didn’t melt away while baking, thanks to a couple of hours in the freezer.
I threw some Easter sprinkles on top to make the cookies a little more festive.
Overall, it’s a simple and wonderful recipe from Peeps. The cookies were chewy, definitely on the sweeter side, and had a cooked brown sugar taste.
I started making the cookies as directed in the recipe by rolling the dough to cover all of the Peepsters, but that got a little difficult. I ended up stirring the pieces into the dough ball, not worrying whether the dough was covering each piece of chocolate or not. Honestly, I didn’t notice a difference between the two versions. Make your life a little easier by carefully stirring the chopped Peepsters into your cookie dough rather than trying to fully cover each piece.
