Peeps Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats

These Peeps Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats are made with multi colored marshmallow Peeps and shaped into Easter eggs. I love this colorful take on two of my favorites: Rice Krispie Treats and Peeps marshmallows! 


Ingredients:

Makes 24 or more eggs

  • 5 tablespoons butter 
  • 5 3-ounce packages Marshmallow Peeps {10 peeps each in 5 different colors}
  • 7 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Directions:

  1. Line a 9 inch loaf pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Divide the Peeps by 10s of the same color. I used 10 pink, 10 yellow, 10 blue, 10 green, and 10 purple.
  3. In a large microwaveable bowl, microwave 10 of the same color Peeps with 1 tablespoon of butter on high for 45 seconds.Watch Peeps closely so they don't rise and overflow. 
  4. Using a spatula coated in cooking spray, stir butter and Peeps together until fully melted and incorporated. 
  5. Stir in 1½ cups of cereal until fully coated. 
  6. Press firmly into the loaf pan.
  7. Repeat steps with all the other Peeps colors.
  8. Allow to cool completely then lift out of pan, remove aluminum foil, and slice into 1 inch wide bars {12 total}.
  9. Using an egg shaped cookie cutter/s cut out egg shapes. I got about 2 medium eggs per slice.
  10. Place in decorative bags and tie to give as Easter gifts. 
  11. They will last up to a week in a sealed container.
