Rice Krispies Treats with Peeps Syrup Topping

There I was, sitting here dreaming about the ice cream with Peep syrup we made when it hit me. I bet that melted Peeps (aka Peep Syrup) would be great over Rice Krispies Treats. And it was! Really, how can you go wrong with melted Peeps! Rice Krispies Treats with Peeps syrup topping is awesome!

Rice Krispies Treats with Peeps Syrup Topping

I didn’t feel like making the treats from scratch, so I picked up a box of the already-made kind. They’re dangerously good.

These are easy to make. The Peep syrup adds a nice twist. Try different colors of Peeps for a different look! And just between us, I find that melting Peeps is fun to do. Anita can’t stand the sight of them ‘dying’.

The syrup is also great over ice cream.

Also try my Cheerios nuggets.

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

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.

  • Let cool 30 minutes and cut into bars.

Instructions

  • Spray a 9″ x 13″ pan with the non-stick spray. Also spray a spatula and the cookie cutter.
  • Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Add in the marshmallows and stir until melted.
  • Stir in the cake mix. The mixture will get thicken as you stir.
  • Pour in the cereal and fold to combine well. The mixture will start to firm up, so work quickly but gently.
  • Pour mixture into the pan and spread out, flattening with the spatula.
  • Place in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes or until set.
  • Cut into hearts. I was able to get 24 hearts using a small Wilton heart cutter.
  • Because we were transporting them, I placed them on wax paper in Tupperware containers and refrigerated them until about 30 minutes before serving.
