These Peeps in a Blanket brownies are a festive Easter dessert recipe! Chewy chocolate brownies are topped with cute bunny peeps, dipped in chocolate and decorated with sprinkles!


  • 3/4 cup (180ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups (310g) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup (98g) all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 1/2 tbsp (59g) natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 810 Bunny Peeps
  • 1012 oz Ghirardelli melting wafers (or similar baking/melting chocolate)
  • Sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9 square baking pan and line it with parchment paper that sticks up above the edges. You’ll use the parchment paper to lift the bars out of the pan later.
  2. Add the oil, sugar and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl and whisk together to combine. Add the eggs and whisk together until well combined.
  3. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl, then add to the wet ingredients. Whisk together until just well combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.
  5. Allow brownies to cool completely, then remove them from the pan using the parchment paper. Cut the brownies into rectangles that will fit the Peeps. I cut them down the middle to cut it in half, then cut eat half into rectangles. You should get 8-10 brownies.
  6. Place melting chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt according to package directions. Use a knife or offset spatula to spread a little chocolate on the back of each peep and stick them to the brownies. Allow the chocolate to dry.
  7. Dip the brownies, one at a time, into the melted chocolate. Gently shake or brush off the excess chocolate. Place brownies onto parchment paper and add sprinkles. Allow to dry completely.
  8. Store brownies in an airtight container. They are best eaten within 3-4 days.
