These Easter Rice Krispie Treats are a fun holiday themed snack the kids will love to eat and share with their friends! Bunny Peeps are a fun addition to the classic krispie treat recipe.
Peeps. You either love them or you hate. Those that love them either like them fresh or they like them stale 🙂 If you like these sugary covered marshmallows bunnies then you have got to try these Easter rice krispie treats. They are so fun for the kids and would be great to serve at an Easter Egg hunt! We decided to use different colored peeps because my boys couldn’t decide what color they liked best but you can easily just use one color.
We made the classic rice krispie treat recipe and as soon as we put the hot marshmallow cereal in our baking dish we topped them with spring colored sprinkles and our peeps. Just slightly push the marshmallow peeps into the hot cereal and then allow it to cool. My biggest tip for making the best rice krispie treats….melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave. Im telling you they always turn out better for me 🙂 I alway LOVE the Jet-Puffed Marshmallows. I find that they tend to be the freshest and best tasting.
Easter Rice Krispie Treats
- 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
- 3 TBSP . butter
- 1 package (about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows or 4 cups of mini marshmallows
- In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Add Rice Krispie cereal. Stir until fully coated. Using buttered spatula or wooden spoon evenly press coated Rice Krispie cereal into a 13 x 9 inch pan coated with cooking spray. Let cool and serve.
Once the rice krispie treats have cooled just cut them into equal pieces and serve 🙂
