Layered S'mores Brownies with PEEPS: rich, fudgy brownies with a layer of grahams, fudge and brownie. Topped with marshmallow #PEEPS

When I was a kid we always had PEEPS in our Easter baskets. The marshmallow oozed out and stuck to the jelly beans and plastic green grass. But it was fine with me because the PEEPS were the last thing I ate.

Why? I like them stale.

Weird, right?

But in this recipe they are best fresh. So don’t be pulling out your stale PEEPS for these brownies!

Speaking of these brownies, lets talk about the layers for a minute.

Last year I made some Chocolate Chip Toffee Fudge Bars. They had a delicious crust with a layer of fudge. So I decided to use that same crust theory on some brownies. Then it occurred to me that these brownies needed marshmallows! That’s where the PEEPS came into play and the S’mores brownies became a reality!

These brownies have a delicious graham cracker crust and a layer of rich chocolate fudge. They are then topped with some fudgy brownies (not cake-like please).

A PEEP sits on top of these cuties not only for the Holiday appeal but for the added marshmallow flavor! YUM. Be sure you scroll down to the end of this post for the recipe!!

Easter is only a week and half away! Are you ready?? Well these cute Layered S'mores Brownies with PEEPS might help get you ready! Plus there is a PEEPS prize to win today too!

Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 2 cup graham crackers (about 13 whole grahams),
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Fudge Layer:

  • 1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 bag (11.5oz) milk chocolate morsels
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter

For the Brownies:

  • 1 box (18.3oz) fudge brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines chewy fudge brownies for 13x9 pan)
  • 20 PEEPS

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse grahams until fine. Add melted butter with a fork and press into the bottom of a parchment paper lined 13x9.
  2. In a medium sized glass bowl, heat condensed milk in microwave for one minute. Add butter and milk chocolate morsels and return to microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth (may need to heat an additional 30 seconds). Pour over graham crust.
  3. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions (don't bake yet). Make sure you buy a brownie mix for a 13x9 recipe, and make the fudgy version (not cake-like). Pour brownie batter over fudge layer.
  4. Place in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. Remove and press PEEPS into top, 5 across, 4 down. Allow brownies to cool completely in pan. Remove with parchment paper and cut into rectangles. ENJOY.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

  2. These are amazing!! Looking forward to giving them a try this weekend, after the bunny makes his big drop of peeps!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. LOVE peeps stale or fresh. I feel a bit embarrassed admitting I like them so much. They seem like a kid treat for sure.

  4. I love to get a few packages of peeps and invite my parents over. My dad’s favorite “candy” is peeps, so my kids and I always buy him at least a few packages a year. We have him come over to pick them up and he very seldom actually goes home with peeps. Kids can’t keep their hands off them!!!

  5. I don’t actually eat PEEPS–however, they bring me lots of enjoyment! My kids love PEEPS and now I have a grandson who likes them, too. Their delight in these goodies makes me smile. The other way I enjoy PEEPS is by putting them in the microwave and watching them expand 😉
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I just braved Walmart (the horror!) for some Party Cake Peeps for a batch of Peeps Cake Batter Candy from Cookies & Cups.

  7. Love these brownies! Thought about making them and individually wrapping them for my son and his college friends (girls) on the hall, they seem to be the recipients of my goodies!

  8. My husband would be all over these! Sadly, I’m not a chocolate fan (saved me many calories over the years), but I do try to make him some chocolaty treats every once in a while 🙂

    Random question, do you use a program to get your recipe to show up in that format on your blog?

      1. Thanks! I just can’t figure out how to make the image of the actual recipe appear on my post. I’ll keep working with it.

  9. I made these yesterday to take to our youth group last night. They were fabulous! I didn’t put the peeps on them though because I needed to get a lot of servings out the bars. Everyone loved them! The fudge layer was incredible!

  10. I am OBSESSED with Peeps! I still have a stash leftover from Valentine’s day I’m working on. I just love eating them right out of the package but they have to be fresh for me!

  11. The graham cracker crust sounds so yummy with the fudgy brownies! The peeps just pop with color against the brownies too!

  12. I love Peeps! I always had a ton of Peeps at Easter because I would trade with my siblings. They didn’t like Peeps and I didn’t like Cadbury creme eggs. So we would do a trade. 🙂

  13. The peeps look soo cute laying on their bed of fudgy brownies! I’d like to stretch out on some brownies some time too 😉

  14. These look absolutely incredible! Love chocolate and marshmallow! Such a fantastic addition to the Peeps party! So glad we got to collaborate 😀

  15. I love Peeps and can’t wait to try this recipe. I am addicted to all of your fudge recipes and make them often.

    Thanks for testing out all of these recipes and sharing them. You rock!!

  16. I love to eat PEEPS straight from the package while they are FRESH! They are my favorite candy! I love your recipe; thanks for sharing.

  17. SO MANY PEEPS! I am loving this peeps party happening on all my favorite blogs, but it DOES make it quite hard to pick which recipe to try….maybe I’ll just stockpile on Peeps and try them all – that sounds reasonable right? 😉

  18. Finally!!!! Someone agrees with me about stale peeps! It’s true, they were always stuck to the Easter Grass…but that’s the beauty of them….adn the staler the better! I have archived peeps with dates on them. I buy a new package and slit it open and date it. If I don’t get a new batch of peeps…I cannot eat the stale peeps. That’s the rule! I’ve always been a simple peeps person, however, I just might go over the edge fot these peep smore’s brownies!!!!!

  19. I’m not much of a PEEPS person, but my sister is absolutely OBSESED with them! She has put them in the microwave to make them get huge, she has put them in her hot chocolate, just plain eaten them, and dipped them in chocolate!

  20. I just pulled these out of the oven a little while ago and they look and smell fabulous! My only problem is that the peeps didn’t stick to the brownies 🙁 I’m going to use a bit of buttercream and “glue” them on. Thanks for the great recipe!

  21. Oh I love the looks of these! Graham cracker crust layer, fudge layer, brownie layer, and a peeps layer…yum! Can’t go wrong making anything s’mores 🙂

  22. Usually I love Peeps straight out of the box but I have discovered the chocolate covered Peeps and they might be my new favorite!

  23. Between you and Jocelyn praising the wonders of stale Peeps, looks like I need to rip open a package and set ’em out for awhile to enjoy them stale! If you say so 🙂 these brownies look SO gooey and delish, Aimee!

  24. My husband just brought home a package of Peeps for me last weekend (they ARE my favorite holiday treat) and I enjoyed them sitting on my bed, reading my emails, while the kids were outside. I just brushed the sugar crumbs off the bed and myself after polishing off the whole package.

  25. I like to open the package and let them set out for awhile so they get kinda hard & crusty. They’re really good that way! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  26. These peeps brownies are so cute. Thanks for the recipe & the sweepstakes. We love peeps, so any excuse to use them s always welcome!

  27. Those fudgey brownies with a crust are killing me…I love how dark and decadent they look!!!! And so cute and festive with the Peeps on top!!!

  28. Peeps are a childhood staple of Easter. I had never thought about eating them as part of a dessert. My youngest will love the Layered S’mores Brownies. I can’t wait to try the chocolate covered ones.

  29. Oh yum! Peeps are my favorite…I love them for almost every season!! Easter is my still my favorite though. 🙂

  30. Very cute! Although I am not a big fan of Peeps. That’s ok, I’ll save those for for some one else and I’ll devour the fudge brownie!

  31. I love Peeps too!! And the brownies look so fudgy and moist and gooey!! I want!! And I am not going to lie I totally forgot Easter is only a week and a half away!! I really should remember since it’s my birthday as well as Easter on the 31st!
