Chocolate and Peeps Pie

1 1/2 cups graham crackers, crushed

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 full packages of Peeps, 30 Peeps total (your choice of color), plus additional for garnish

1/3 cup hot milk

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/4 teaspoon brandy

2 ounces semisweet chocolate, cut into small chunks and chilled in freezer (or two toffee bars chopped into bite-size pieces)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pulse graham crackers in a food processor until fine.

Mix butter, sugar and crushed graham crackers in a bowl. Press mixture evenly into the sides and bottom of a 9-inch pie plate.

Bake crust for 7 minutes until golden. Allow to cool to room temperature. (Crust can be made a day or two in advance and kept fresh in the refrigerator.)

Using a double boiler, stir in hot milk and Peeps until fully melted and uniform in color. Allow to cool to room temperature, 7-10 minutes. Do not allow mixture to stiffen.

Whip cream to stiff peaks using a hand blender or kitchen mixer. Add brandy during mixing.

Using large rubber spatula, fold whipped cream and chocolate pieces into the Peeps mixture. Make sure all of the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.

Pour into graham cracker pie shell and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Garnish with whole Peeps and/or more chocolate pieces.

They honestly do not.

These, however, are the bomb. THEY GOT MOTHER****IN' SNAKES!

I love the weeks after Easter when they're on sale for 10 cents.

I hate to bring ya down but (much as it pains me to admit it) Scotty is, for once in his life, correct.

peeps are vile m'dear. peeps are a cruel menace to all things sweet and wonderful and I insist these abortions have been perpetrated upon unsuspecting small children for far too long. much like marzipan or Jordan almonds (eurgh!). what a horrible shock to bite into something like that as a kid, expecting actual candy bliss. only thing possibly worse is black licorice. that just ain't right.

and if you need any further proof of the pure righteousness of Cadbury Creme Eggs, here's a most excellent gay man's rant about his dearth of Cadbury Creme Eggs and his quest to find some. see you just KNOW they've got to be fabulous if the faboo boyz are representin' for them.

and also goes to show, you do NOT get between a queen and his CCEs baby! :D :cool:

Cadbury eggs blow goats--or result from blowing goats. I can't remember which.

Peeps are lovely--though in small doses and are best when stale. Regardless, they are always cheery to look at.

You know, the way they made theirs with yellow peeps looks gross. But it sounds good. I bet purple or blue peeps would look cool!

Each Easter I used to buy a couple boxes of those vile things and populate my cow-irkers cubicles with em. It was fun to see what they looked like in 6 months. They turn to stone literally.

Peeps are good for one reason

You can microwave 'em and they puff up like crazy. If you then throw one into a wall, it'll stick. But for eating, no good.
