Baking With Littles: Peeps Sunflower Brownies

After making an emergency, week-long trip home to the US this week, this post is a little behind schedule! It was intended for Easter, but given that sunflowers work most any time, I give you : the Peeps Sunflower Brownie.

I saw this all over pinterest a few months ago and knew it was worth a try. Though Peeps have a very love-it-or-hate-it reputation, their decorative purposes know no bounds!

This recipe is perfect for little ones, and they can help with both the making and decoration of the brownies! To keep it simple, I suggest using a boxed brownie mix.

Instructions:

Mix brownie mix according to the package instructions. Bake in a 6 inch round tin, again according to the instructions on the packet!

While the brownies are baking, make a dark chocolate ganache by boiling 1 cup of whipping cream. Once boiled, pour in 8 ounces of semisweet chocolate. Let stand for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt, then stir.

Cover the brownie with the ganache on the top only. Then, arrange yellow chick peeps around the edges of the brownie to represent sunflower petals. Place mini chocolate chips or Maltesers in the middle of the "flower", and you're done!

 

Excluding baking time, the whole thing takes 10-15 minutes to pull together. It's fun, pretty, and according to Peeps-lovers, delicious!

I hope you and your family have a beautiful Easter surrounded by those that mean most.

Thanks for reading!

Kind Regards,
