6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
4 tbsp butter
4 packages of Peeps (in various colors for a fun, vibrant look)
Non-stick cooking spray


Prepare Your Pan: Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Melt the Peeps: In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Add the Peeps to the pot, stirring constantly. To make the treats even more colorful, melt different colors of Peeps separately with a tablespoon of butter each time.
Mix with Cereal: Once the Peeps and butter have melted together into a smooth mixture, remove the pot from the heat. Immediately add the Rice Krispies cereal to the pot and stir until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture. If you’ve melted different colors separately, layer them in the pan for a rainbow effect.
Press into Pan: Transfer the Rice Krispies mixture to the prepared baking pan. Using a spatula or wax paper, press down firmly to create an even layer. If you’re working with layers of different colors, gently press each layer on top of the previous one before adding the next.
Cool and Cut: Allow the Rice Krispies treats to cool and set at room temperature. Once set, cut into squares or desired shapes.
Serve and Enjoy: Your Peeps Rice Krispies Treats are now ready to be served! Enjoy the sweet, marshmallowy goodness and the cheerful burst of colors that make these treats a perfect addition to any springtime celebration.
