Peeps Brownie Pops

When Christi (Love From The Oven) and Michelle (Sugar Swings! Serve Some) asked me to participate in their "Spring Hop Along Peeps Party", I was more than happy to join in on the fun! I'm not sure there's a more iconic candy associated with Easter than Peeps ( though chocolate bunnies are a close second;))!
I thought that I'd share an easy-peasy, but yummy treat, to feature these bright, bunny Peeps. It doesn't really require a recipe, but just a few short steps to end up with a fun and fabulous Easter pop.
 
 I used a brownie mix (hence the easy-peasy label), candy melts, bunny Peeps, popsicle sticks and sprinkles.
 
Simply bake up a batch of brownies in a 9x13-inch pan, and bake according to package directions. Let cool completely, and then cut into rectangles big enough to accommodate the bunnies (I used a cookie cutter that is shaped like an ice cream bar). Insert the popsicle sticks. Melt the candy melts according to package directions, and use a small, offset spatula (or knife) to spread the melted candy over the front of each brownie.  Add sprinkles and then the bunny while the candy melts are still wet.  Voila!  You now have some colorful and yummy Peeps Brownie Pops! 
You can add them to Easter baskets or use them as an Easter/spring decoration:)

  20. We make Peep Smore's at my house, toasted peeps on a stick (seems a bit sadistic now that I see it typed out) :), and I baked them in the middle of a choclate cake...the presentation wasn't what I was thinking it would look like go figure marshmallows melt :O) ,but it tasted good

  26. Cute ideas! I love to make S'mores with peeps. Sometimes after making them I dip the ends in white chocolate. A favorite way to eat them is to open the pacakge and let them get a little firm. To be honest I'll eat them any way I can get them - probably my most favorite Easter treat. I'm glad you can get them for most holidays.
