Layered Peeps Rice Krispie Treats!!
Prep time is about 10 mins, cooking time is about 15 mins.
More fun than the regular treats! Just in time for Easter!
Serves: 8-16 pieces
4 tablespoons butter or margarine (divided)
4 3-ounce packages Marshmallow Peeps (in 4 different colors)
6 cups Crispy Rice cereal (divided)
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 deep, medium sized microwaveable dish, microwave 10 of the same color peeps with 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. Here’s a tip: spray a spatula with cooking spray before stirring.
Stir in 1½ cups of cereal until fully coated. Press firmly into the loaf pan.
Repeat steps 3-4 with the other Peeps colors.
Allow to cool completely (1-2 hours) before slicing.
After you slice them you can put sticks in them and make them into a cake-pop type thing. Wrap in clear little bags that you can find at the dollar store, tie with a ribbon. JUST BEAUTIFUL!!
