PEEPS Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart!


I’m pulling out the PEEPS for an easy dessert, PEEPS Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart! The inspiration for this PEEPS cookie tart came from Peeps-a-licious! and the recipe for Funfetti Cookie Pie contributed by Love from the Oven.



16 oz. package of refrigerated cookie dough, sugar, chocolate chip or peanut butter

PEEPS Marshmallow Bunnies

1 can of vanilla frosting or flavor of choice

Decorative sprinkles


 I used Pillsbury Ready To Bake Chocolate Chunk & Chip Cookies and an 11-inch tart pan for easy removal of the cookie and cutting, but you can use a pizza pan if you prefer or don’t have a tart pan.


Press the cookies together so they cover the bottom of your pan and then bake according to package directions and your oven, around 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow cookie crust to cool.


When completely cooled, remove cookie from tart pan and pipe frosting around edge of cookie. (I used a 1M star tip). Arrange Peeps in a circle in center of cookie. When arranged, apply a dollop of frosting on the back of each Peep to hold in place. Add sprinkles to your frosting border and on top of the cookie if desired.


I used Wilton Easter Sprinkles Mix with pastel Easter egg sprinkles and green jimmies that I found at Walmart.


You can find directions to make an easy and edible Easter PEEPS Centerpiece, here.


I have two copies of Peeps-a-licious! courtesy of QuartoCooks to give away in time for Easter.


The winners are Bonnie Keearns and Rosie M.

Congratulations Bonnie & Rosie, I’ll be in touch with you by email and have your books shipped to you! Thanks to all who entered.

    Mary, are the dessert plates you used in this post “Antique White” by Mikasa? “Manoir” by Villeroy and Boch? Other? Thanks for letting me know. Also, did you leave the cookie on the bottom of the tart pan when you cut it? If so, wouldn’t that ruin the finish on the tart pan? I’m planning to make this dessert for Easter tomorrow, so thanks for the great idea! I have to make the cookie dough from scratch, though, so I can use whole-grain flour and raw honey to sweeten.

    • March 31, 2018 at 3:15 pm

      Hi Maureen, The plates are Mikasa Antique White. Yes, the tart pan has a removable bottom making it easy to transfer your tart/cookie to your serving or cake plate. I’ve used mine many times. I wouldn’t saw back and forth on it with your knife :) but they’re designed and intended to serve from. Happy Easter!

        Thanks so much for answering, Mary. I made my cookie tart this morning (Easter morning) using a tart pan I bought yesterday (you’re inspiring me to try many “firsts”!) that looks like yours. It is a Wilton. I didn’t see your answer first (forgot to check when I got back from church), so after the cookie was baked and cooled, I slid it off the bottom of the tart pan onto a cake stand. It cracked a bit in one place, but I pushed it back together, so you can’t really see the crack. Plus, I’ll be piping whipped cream on it later, so hopefully that will cover it. But next time I’ll take your advice and put it on the cake stand with the tart-pan bottom under it. I imagine the cookie will cut easily enough that if I’m careful, I won’t scratch the bottom to the tart pan. (BTW, when my college-student daughter saw the finished cookie, she said, “I’ve decided I’m a fan of anything made in a tart pan.”) Would love to see more recipes if you have posted any in other blogs.

        Hi Maureen, I’m glad you were able to piece your tart back together and I hope it was a hit! I have a Star-Spangled Fruit Tart recipe, a No Bake 5-Ingredient Chocolate Tart and an Heirloom Tomato Tart with Bacon-Studded Crust recipe in the archives. Click on the highlighted links. Happy Easter!

    Oh, and Happy Easter to you, too! I want you to know what a blessing you and your blog are. When I first started following you, I was interested only in the tablescapes. I love to make the table look nice but have never really cared much about cooking or baking (though I make all my family’s dinners from scratch each night so we can eat healthy). In fact, if you knew me in person, you would be shocked that I had actually purchased a 1M start tip, couplers, and disposable bags to try piping. Now I am interested as well in the baking and gardening you so clearly enjoy! So thanks again for all you do to inspire.

      Yes, the tart was a huge hit, and I hope to try some of your other ones. Thank you for the links!
