Supplies for your Peeps Easter Rice Krispie Treats – 

Easter Rice Krispies with PeepsBegin by melting one package of Peeps, 1/4 cup of butter and 2 cups of marshmallows. I used the microwave to melt the ingredients together and once it came out, I gave it a good stir. Create your own Peeps Rice Krispie Treats in the shape of actual Peeps!

You’ll then pour it onto a 1/4 sheet pan. To press down the treats easily, wet your hands a little. It’ll make the mixture not as hot to the touch and you’ll have no marshmallows stuck to your hands afterward. Create your own Peeps Rice Krispie Treats in the shape of actual Peeps!

I got 8 out of each 1/4 sheet pan.

Now take your black writing gel and place three dots to represent the eyes and the nose of the bunnies. Now they look just like giant peeps and taste delicious. You’re going to get more servings, obviously, if you just cut them into squares but it’s fun for them to be cut into mimicking bunnies to match the Peeps.Create your own Peeps Rice Krispie Treats in the shape of actual Peeps!

Who cares, it’s Easter and Easter is the perfect time to have Peeps Rice Krispie Treats.
