Spooky S'Mores Brownies

One more day till Halloween! 

I have seen these babies floating around Pinterest for a few weeks and decided that I needed to give them a try. This is the recipe from Home is Where The Boat Is I found on Pinterest and this is the brownie recipe I used from Kitchen Concoctions.  I was drawn to the brownie recipe because of the tagline of one bowl.  Busy week night and one bowl brownies? Score!  The brownie recipe was absolutely delicious and I can't wait to make it again- Peeps or not.  My picture is not great and does not do justice to how use these guys are.  I loved the idea of using Peeps for a holiday feel to traditional s'mores flavors. Think this would also be fun to try with the different Peep marshmallows released around Christmas! 


1 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
¾ cup sugar 
½ cup all-purpose flour 
1/3 cup cocoa powder 
¼ teaspoon baking powder 
¼ teaspoon salt 
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
2 eggs 
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips (reserve 18 to use for the eyes)
1 package of Ghost Peeps (you could use pumpkin or cat too)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bag, crush graham crackers to equal 1 1/2 cups. Add butter, sugar and salt. Mix with hands until evenly incorporated. Press graham crackers into the bottom of a greased 8x8 baking dish.  Bake crust for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees. 

While the crust is cooling prepare the brownies batter.  Add flour, coca powder, baking powder, salt, oil vanilla and eggs into a large bowl of stand mixer. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. 

Spread brownie batter over cooled crust. Bake 20 minutes.  Top with chocolate chips and bake an additional 2-3 minutes. 

Remove from the oven and arrange Peeps on top.  Broil briefly to brown the marshmallow.  Remove from oven and place remaining chocolate chips on the Peeps to make eyes. 

Allow brownies to cool. Slice and enjoy with a glass of cold milk.
