Peeps Rice Crispy Treats

Yields 1 dozen
Peeps Rice Crispy Treats


10-count box pink Peeps marshmallows
10-count box blue Peeps marshmallows
10-count box purple Peeps marshmallows
10-count box yellow Peeps marshmallows
4 tablespoons margarine or butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal



Grease a 9-inch bread pan. Place the contents of each package of Peeps into a separate microwave-safe bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to each bowl. Heat the first bowl for 30 seconds, stir and heat for 30 seconds more. Stir 1 ½ cups of cereal into the heated marshmallows and transfer the mixture to the bread pan. Use a greased spatula to press the cereal down into an even layer. Repeat with each of the remaining colors, layering each color on top of the previous. Freeze rice crispies until firm. Flip the pan onto a cutting board and cut the rice crispy “loaf” into slices.
