Easter Rice Krispies with PeepsBegin by melting one package of Peeps, 1/4 cup of butter and 2 cups of marshmallows.

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.fun kids easter treats Sometimes I find Peeps overly sweet because of the sugar coating so I’ve found that mixing them with more regular marshmallows makes them more tolerable to eat a larger amount. Who cares, it’s Easter and Easter is the perfect time to have Peeps Rice Krispie Treats.
