Shamrock Peeps Rice Krispies Treats

These shamrock Peeps Rice Krispies treats were fun to make…

…specially if you’re into watching poor little Peeps meet their demise in a hot pot! Anita hates when I do this to ‘them’.

Although I used green Peeps to make these for St. Patrick’s day, you can use any color, or even a combination of colors (don’t mix them together – let them melt in place). They taste just like your usual Rice Krispies treats. If you don’t have Peeps (they are now available year-round in some places), just use marshmallows and green food coloring.

Peeps melted down make for a fun syrup to add to any Rice Krispies treat.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 40 Peeps 4 packages
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Instructions

  • Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Melt the butter over low heat in a large non-stick pot.
  • Add the Peeps to the pot and melt them, stirring occasionally. Do not overcook or the butter will burn.
  • Remove pot from heat and stir in the cereal.
  • Pour the mixture into a baking dish and spread it out. I used a spatula sprayed with non-stick spray to make it easier to spread out the cereal.
  • Let cool 30 minutes and cut into bars.
