Peeps Crispy Treats


Yeah, Peeps, you know the marshmallow and sanding sugar shaped candies that come out at Easter time? My kids got peeped out this Easter, they must have received DOZENS of the things, so I decided to use them up before they all went stale. (Peeps get stale, true facts!)

I took some peeps and melted them in 3 TB of butter over medium heat on the stove, then added 6 cups of crispy rice cereal. I stirred them up and then pressed the molten hot peep-cereal mixture into a buttered 9 x 13 baking dish. Then, I decorated the tops with multi-colored sprinkles, just because, well you know MOAR SPRINKLES! It's a thing.

Enjoy!

  1. We also had an overabundance of Peeps, because the kids wanted to make Peeps dioramas. I will save this recipe for next year. I can't wait to take a look at your other recipes.

  2. About how many peeps did you use for that 6 cups of cereal?

  3. 30 Peeps, plus a handful of pink star shaped marshmallows I had for some reason.

  4. It was about 30 peeps, plus I threw in some star shaped pink marshmallows I found lurking in the cabinet, about a handful of those. I hope you all enjoy them!
