If you know me, you know that my biggest pet peeve has to be when people don’t have their headlights on when it’s rainy or foggy.
It seriously drives. me. bonkers.
And I always wish that a friendly police officer will drive by and pull the offenders over, giving them the biggest ticket imaginable. Or maybe send them to traffic jail for being a danger to society and an annoyance to me.
Some girls want diamonds. I want this.
But then I was driving a couple days ago during a particularly blustery day, and I saw so many people without their lights on that I felt like my head would explode. Just when I thought I would die of obnoxiousness, I saw a cop! Finally, my dream would come true! But then I realized the cop didn’t even have his headlights on.
It was then that I realized there is no helping humanity. We’re all doomed.
Anyway, I had to come home to console myself with one of my favorite Easter candies, Peeps. I love Peeps and find them to be such a classic holiday candy. Some people have a strong dislike for them, and that’s okay – more for me. Personally, I like them when they’re super fresh and plush, and when they’re stale and a little crunchier. However, this recipe for Peeps Brownie Bombs uses fresh Peeps right outta the package.
If you’ve ever wondered how delicious fudgy, rich brownies are with puffy, sugary marshmallows, you don’t need to wonder anymore! These are the best of both worlds, coated in creamy white chocolate and sprinkles. And they are such a wonderful way to dress up this Easter candy.
I highly recommend making them – you won’t be disappointed!
- 1 (13×9″) pan fudge brownies, baked, cooled and cut into 12 equal pieces
- 12 Peeps candies (any color, flavor, or shape – I used chicks)
- 1 pkg vanilla CandiQuik
- Line a baking sheet with foil; set aside.
- Take a piece of brownie and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Wrap the brownie around the Peep candy, pinching the brownie and rolling it in your hand to completely enclose the Peep within the brownie. Place on the baking sheet – repeat with remaining Peeps and brownies.
- Freeze the brownie bombs for about 30 minutes to one hour or until solid.
- Melt the CandiQuik according to package directions. Drop a brownie bomb into the melted CandiQuik with a fork, completely submerging the brownie bomb into the chocolate. Remove the brownie bomb from the chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet and immediately top with sprinkles. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.
Soft, chewy and ultra fudgy, these brownie bombs are so awesome! They taste great with the classic Peeps, but would be lovely with any of the flavored Peeps too!
Have a super sweet day!
