Leftover Easter Candy: Rice Krispie Peep Treats

This year I had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy a love & chocolate filled Easter with Mike in New York. We drove down on Friday night for the whirl wind weekend, and returned to Vermont on Sunday night in my car, which we had packed with lots of edible goodies from our family.

Easter Candy Overload!

So this week we have been eating our way through the pile of treats, but it looks like we haven't even made a dent! (it didn't help that I couldn't resist the 50% Easter candy sale at CVS) So I decided to whip up a batch of my (not yet) famous Rice Krispie Peep Treats! These sugarloaded pink fluffy clouds of cocoa-coated rice krispie yum yums are unbelievable. I don't particularly enjoy the taste of Peeps alone, but these sweets are great in a candy bar.



Here's how it went down:


And there you have it! Deliciousness... and remember, these sweet n' crispy treats are made out of cereal, so it's perfectly acceptable to eat these for breakfast.


Here's the recipe:


Ingredients

6 Cups rice crispy cereal
24 Peeps
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 Cup M&Ms

Directions

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add Peeps and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.  Add rice crispy cereal. Stir until well coated. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cover with M&Ms. DEVOUR.
