I love the holidays. Again, I have over decorated for Easter this year. I have my plastic eggs everywhere! Anyway, this is the season for sweets. Pastel Sweets. Check out this recipe!
Layered Peeps Rice Crispy Treats by Yellow Bliss Road.
For some reason it doesn't feel like spring but it has sprung
someone tell the weather man because it snowed yesterday!
Since I don't feel like spring, even after I decorated,
so, I decided to look for an uplifting snack. I love this idea.
What else do you do with Peeps.
I have only made Rice Crispy Treats once and Kristin assures me that I can do this!
Melt a 3 oz. package of Peeps with a tablespoon of butter for 45 seconds in the microwave.
Use a large bowl because the Peeps expand.
Kristin used a different bowl for each color.
Add a cup of Rice Krispies Cereal or generic cereal and coat well.
Line a 8x9 loaf pan with foil wrap.
Tip* This is a very sticky project - keep a can of cooking spray close
it helps to keep your spatula and fingers sticky free!
Can't you just see this on your Easter table!!!
Layered Peeps Rice Krispie Treats
Recipe type: Dessert, Easter Treat
Rice Krispie Treats with a twist - they're made with marshmallow Peeps and layered for a beautiful, colorful Easter treat!
- 4 tablespoon butter or margarine (divided by 4)
- 4 Marshmallow Peeps (divided by 4/different colors)
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (divided by 4)
- Prepare an 8-9" loaf pan by lining with foil and spraying lightly with cooking spray.
- Divide the Peeps by 10s of the same color - 10 pink, 10 yellow, etc. (use any colors you like).
- In a medium sized microwave dish with high sides, microwave the 10 of the same color peeps and 1 tablespoon of butter on high for 45 seconds. Because microwaves vary, watch closely so the Peeps don't flow over the sides of the bowl.
- Stir butter and Peeps together until fully melted and incorporated.
- Stir in 1½ cups of cereal until fully coated. Press firmly into the loaf pan.
- Repeat 3-5 with the other Peeps colors.
- Allow to cool completely (1-2 hours) before slicing.
