Peeps Pie is a ridiculous Easter dessert that your family will never forget. Like lobsters, the marshmallow Peeps are placed into a saucepan and murdered. What does it taste like? Pure PEEPS heaven. Yum! Here’s how to make an Easter Peeps Pie.
Peeps Pie Ingredients List:
- (1) Box of 3.9 oz chocolate pudding mix ($0.99 per box via Amazon)
- (1) quart of Half and Half
- (1) Ready made pie crust ($~2.50 each via Amazon)
- (3+) Boxes of Peeps. Peeps are sold 10 per box, but feel free to use more Peeps if you have them ($1.50 per box via Amazon)
- (2) Cups of Shredded coconut flakes (~$3 per bag via Amazon)
- Green food coloring (~$2 via Amazon)
- (1) Bag of chocolate chips (~$2.50 via Amazon)
- (1) Heath Milk Chocolate English Toffee Bar (~$3 via Amazon)
Make Chocolate Pudding
- Make chocolate pudding and then chill
The recipe instructions for your chocolate pudding mix will vary, but most of them just require adding about (2) cups of Half and Half to the mix and whisking it until it solidifies.
After you mix your chocolate pudding, place it in the refrigerator to chill for a few minutes.
Add A Chocolate Base To Pie Crust
- Pour pudding into pie crust
Pour your chocolate pudding into the pie crust. Your goal here is to add a layer of chocolate pudding to the bottom of the pie crust shell. Then let it cool for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
Melt The Marshmallow Peeps
- Melt Peeps in saucepan
Place 2-3 boxes of Easter Peeps into a saucepan, turn the heat on low and murder them. Then feel bad for every lobster you’ve ever eaten.
NERD NOTE: The ingredients of Peeps are sugar, corn syrup, food dyes, gelatin, and salt.
Feel Sad For The Melted Peeps
- As your Peeps make the ultimate sacrifice, shed a tear.
The Peeps’ cries for help are slowly melted away as the marshmallow turns into a surgery liquid foam. Yum.
Make The Marshmallow Peeps Mixuture
- Add cream and chocolate chips to melted marshmallow mixture
Pour the melted Peeps into a mixing bowl and add (1/4) cup of chocolate chips and (1/4) cup of Half and Half. Mix until your mixture solidifies.
Pour The Marshmallow Peeps Mixture Into Your Pie Pan
- Pour the Peeps marshmallow mix into your pie crust. Let it cool.
We are halfway there! Pour your Easter Peeps marshmallow mixture into your pie crust. Don’t overflow it! You need to leave room to decorate the top of your pie.
Then let the pie cool again in the fridge for at least 10 minutes while you prepare the toppings.
Make Shredded Coconut Grass
- Combine green food coloring and coconut flakes to make coconut grass
Place two cups of shredded coconut into a bowl and slowly add a few drops of green food coloring. Stir the mixture and add more food coloring as needed.
Crumble A Heath Candy Bar
- Smash up a Heath toffee bar
With your Heath Milk Chocolate English Toffee Bar still in its wrapper, smash it until it crumbles into small pieces. Then open the wrapper, so it’s ready to pour on top of your Easter Peeps pie.
Decorate Your Easter Peeps Pie With Toppings
- Add green coconut grass, crumbled Heath bar and Peeps to the top of your pie.
It’s time to decorate. The grassy knoll is made out of some shredded coconut with green food coloring. Add a crumbled Heath Milk Chocolate English Toffee Bar in the center to make this Easter dessert even more ridiculous. Finally, add some non-melted Peeps to stand above the graves of their brothers and sisters.
Eat Your Peeps Pie
Eat it… if you dare. Grab a fork and dig into your Peeps Pie. Just expect a sugar coma and instant cavities.
Marshmallow Peeps Pie: The Absurd Easter Dessert
As delicious as Peeps are, it’s almost impossible to eat all of them during the Easter holiday. In my house, we usually have some leftover Easter Peeps that end up going stale. So, if you have some stale leftover Peeps at home, then making an Easter Marshmallow Peeps Pie is a perfect way to use them instead of tossing old Peeps in the trash. Happy Easter!
NERD NOTE: Peeps were created by Russian immigrant Sam Born (1891-1959). Born acquired the Rodda Candy Company in 1953 and innovated their handmade marshmallow chick product with mass production. By the 1960s, Born’s candy company, Just Born, was the “largest marshmallow candy manufacturer in the world.”
