Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Peeps S’mores Pie

Before I begin I must get something off my chest. I missed World Nutella Day yesterday. I haven’t missed a single one since I started this little blog o’ mine. It’s disturbing because I’ve noticed many other food holidays pass my by, such as National Peanut Butter Day – now that’s shameful! This whole move-thing really threw me off my game. But I digress…

This recipe has been a long time coming. I first made during my cousin’s bachelorette party weekend it back in May of 2013. She loves Reese’s so I mixed some into the brownie batter before it baked in a graham cracker crust, followed by a broiling of marshmallows. It turned out super gooey and was quite a challenge to eat but we still managed to kill it off, and of course I neglected to snap a photograph before the destruction.

This time around I decided to mix it up a bit and replace the regular marshmallows (yawn), with Valentine’s Day themed marshmallow Peeps! Because evidently Peeps are for more than just Easter. Specifically I used the Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts and one red marshmallow heart, because I thought it would look cute. Turns out I would’ve been better off using just the vanilla crème because the red one did not puff up at the same rate, but it was still fun!

  2. Pour graham cracker crumbs into a medium bowl and mix with melted butter and sugar. Press into an ungreased 8-inch or 9-inch pie dish.
  3. Evenly distribute the unwrapped peanut butter cups in the bottom of the crust. Set aside.
