Happy Peepster

So, how about something a bit different for today's post.  I found these really cool Peep ideas on Pinterest which I pinned of course and decided to give one a try.  I made rice krispy treats made with Peeps--how cool is that!

The instructions said to add:

3 Tablespoon butter
35 Peeps
6 Cups rice krispy cereal

Melt the butter and Peeps over a medium heat and DO NOT STIR.

Add the cereal and spread in a 9" x 13" greased pan.

The colors blend and create a mixed variety of muted tones.  The color comes from the butter which browns in the pan because you don't stir the Peeps.  I decided to form my treats into eggs just the right size for my cheapy eggs holders.

Now the question of the hour is...Would I make these again?  No, they were fun and I enjoyed trying a new recipe/idea but, they are just too sweet and I much prefer good ol' Rice Krispy Treats!  I do like Peeps but I like them tough, chewy, and stale--yum.  How do you like your Peeps?

Happy craftin, Elizabeth


  1. I don't like them at all! :-) But those eggs sure do look neat and so do the peeps in the pan:-) Neat idea and would be super fun with kids I think!!!

  2. Love them stale and chewy too!

  3. That is cool how you did the photos of the little guys in the pan!! But at the same time it was a sad end to them... lol :(
