One thing I really love about Easter is all the yummy Easter sweets I can make. There are so many ways to infuse a little Easter into your everyday baking routine and easily make fun, festive treats. These Easter blondies are the perfect example of a classic recipe turned Easter with just a few tweaks. They are pretty, delicious and something you have probably made before.

What You’ll Need to Make Peeps Blondies

Kitchen Tools:

Before you head to the grocery store to grab the ingredients you need to make Easter Peeps Blondies, be sure you have all the kitchen tools required in this recipe. You will need a 9×13 casserole dish, some parchment paper, two medium sized mixing bowls and an electric mixer. A stand mixer with a paddle attachment will work, too.

Ingredients: 

Now it is time to take a trip down the Easter aisle at the grocery store. Here is what goes into my pretty Easter Peeps blondies:

  • butter – I use unsalted butter in all of my baking recipes. Make sure the butter is room temperature and slightly soft. This will help it blend easily into the batter.
  • sugar – regular white, granulated sugar is the perfect sweetener.
  • brown sugar – light brown sugar is perfect for blondies. It has a subtle molasses flavor and keeps the blondies moist as they bake.
  • eggs – Use room temperature eggs as they will mix into the other batter ingredients best.
  • vanilla extract – A little vanilla gives the blondies a rich, sweet flavor
  • flour – regular all purpose flour is all you need!
  • cornstarch – cornstarch helps keep the blondies chewy and soft.
  • baking powder and baking soda – These are important as they help the blondies rise as they bake.
  • salt – A little salt enhances the flavor of the blondies
  • M&M’s – spring colored M&M’s milk chocolate candies are perfect for adding color and chocolate flavor.
  • white chocolate chips – These are essential in any blondie recipe!
  • Peeps – There is nothing more iconic and Easter-y than Peeps! Get them in all colors to ensure your blondies are colorful! Peeps are essentially marshmallows and marshmallows in blondies sounds fantastic.

Many of these ingredients are common baking supplies and you may have them at home already. It is all those little Easter candy additions that make this recipe so special. Stock up on Peeps because you are going to be making these Easter blondies quite a few times- they are addictive!

Tips and Tricks for Making The BEST Easter Peeps Blondies

Peeps blondies

Using Peeps and easter colored M&M’s are just a few of the tricks to making perfect Easter blondies. I have a few more pointers, too! Take a look at these tips before you start baking.

  • Have all of the ingredients at room temperature. This helps the batter blend perfectly without separating or breaking.
  • Cornstarch is key to making the blondies chewy. Cornstarch blocks gluten from forming as the blondies bake, keeping them soft and tender, Don’t skip the cornstarch!
  • Use any of your favorite easter candy to make these blondies. Try chopping some chocolate Reese’s eggs and stirring them into the batter for a peanut butter blondie. Mini Cadbury chocolate eggs are great in place of M&M’s. So many pastel candies to choose from!
  • Make a thicker blondie by baking in a 9×9 pan. You will have to bake the blondies for about 10 minutes longer. Loosely cover the pan with foil so the top doesn’t get too brown as the blondies bake longer.
  • Be sure to mix up the colors as you sprinkle the Peeps on top of the blondies. You want the colors to be spaced all over the blondies evenly.
  • It is hard to wait but be sure to let the blondies cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. They will hold their shape better when allowed to cool a little bit.

Easter blondies recipe

These Easter blondies have become one of my family’s favorite Easter treats. I also love making them! They are easy and so pretty! It is also a fun recipe to play around with, adding your favorite Easter candy to the batter to make it unique and tasty. Get creative and have fun with these Easter Peeps blondies! Make them for your dessert table this Easter or Spring season!

Enjoy and Happy Easter!
