I was a little bit weary of this one but I thought it would be easy and fun to do with the girls. They mix was simple, some butter, and an egg. Easy to bake and the cookies cracked beautifully when they were cooked. I bought the frosting from the store too, and just threw that on there. and Omigosh!
They were so Tasty I couldn’t believe it!!! Key Lime cookies who would of thought. I brought them to Memorial Day Party and so many people were saying how GOOD they tasted and I was like… they came out of box, I felt embarrassed. So easy to make- and so tasty, I definitely recommend!!!
I made mine with all pink peeps, even though I bought a bunch of different peep colors. I slightly crushed the M&M’s just to add a less of a huge crunch. I LOVED THEM. They didn’t go very fast at Easter- I think because most people weren’t feeling adventurous. But I thought they were so tasty!
1 box chocolate cake mix
½ cup oil
20-24 PEEPS candy (you could use bunnies or chicks; I used pink chicks)
1 cup speckled Easter M&M’s candies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13×9 inch pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Mist the foil lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs + oil until well blended. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes. While the bars bake, roughly chop the PEEPS into bite-sized chunks and set aside.
Quickly spread the chopped PEEPS evenly over the bars. Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 5-6 minutes or until the PEEPS are puffy and are juuuust beginning to brown a bit on the tops (you don’t want them to start toasting). Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle both chips and the M&M’s evenly on top of the PEEPS.
Allow the bars to cool in the pan completely before cutting into bars. I used a dampened knife to help me cut through the ultra-gooey marshmallow. These bars keep when covered at room temperature, for a couple of days.
