For the brownies, you first cut some Peeps in half ... the long way ... right between their little eyes. It made me a little sad to cut them between their eyes!

Peeps (I used 30 Peeps)
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 T. shortening
Melt together chocolate chips and shortening. I melted them in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds, until smooth. Dip each Peep in the chocolate mixture, gently shaking off excess. Place on waxed paper and let chocolate set. Dipped Peeps may be placed in the refrigerator for a few minutes to help the chocolate set more quickly.
