  1. You have to have at least one Peep during the spring season. It’s tradition. I think your way of presenting a Peep is 100% better than it’s stand alone version. Brownies and buttercream and Peeps. Sugar coma that’s totally worth every bite.

  2. My BIG kids (including the hubby) would love these bars. My husband finally put the kibosh on Easter baskets when my youngest went to college—but they still get a few goodies 🙂

  3. I am in LOVE with these bars, Nicole! Peeps are one of my favorite springtime candies, and the fact that you both color and flavor coordinated Peeps to brownies is genius! Pinned 😀

  4. Oh my god! I Love your peeps chocolate cake bars. Thanks for sharing.
