I'll be the first to admit that I am not a fan of Peeps. Or marshmallows in general, really. I do like homemade rice krispy treats, s'mores, and an almost-burnt roasted marshmallow. But Peeps? I might actually hate them.

Then, I cam across a video on Facebook for how to use Peeps to make rice krispy treats, and it looked like something Alexis would like. So we decided to try it...except we couldn't find Rice Krispies anywhere. I guess there's a shortage in my area? I'm not sure, but we'd already bought way too many packs of Peeps for one house so we improvised, and I think these turned out better than regular rice krispy treats.

Here's what you'll need:
  • 2-4 packs of Peeps. We used all blue bunnies, but you can do multiple colors for rainbow treats or get the duck ones (there were only bunnies in the store we went to).
  • 1 large/family size box cereal of your choice. We used Cap'n Crunch Oops! All Berries, but pretty much any cereal will work.
  • 1 stick of butter.

This is seriously the easiest recipe ever. Here's what you do.

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Spray your baking dish liberally with non-stick spray. I always use Pam. Then layer your Peeps across the bottom of the pan.


3. Cover the Peeps with your cereal. Then layer thinly sliced slats of butter in rows over the top of the cereal (see picture above for reference).

Note: If your pan is deep enough, you can do a second layer. Mine was shallow, so we just did one.

4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the Peeps have started to bubble.

5. Remove from the oven and then use a spatula to mix your now-melted Peeps throughout the cereal.

6. After your pan has cooled off, place in the fridge to cool for an hour or so.

7. Once they've set, cut up into bars and serve. Warning, they will be super sticky!
