I've been making rice krispie treats for over 20 years and never thought anything of it. It's a pretty simple dessert just white marshmallows, butter and rice krispie cereal, totally yummy and the kids eat them up. I recently had comment left on my candy filled rice krispie treat eggs post mentioning how she felt they looked bland, which got me to thinking. First I tried the colored marshmallows pink lemonade and blue raspberry flavored, they tasted awful. So I happen to have packages of marshmallow peeps in the house and thought why not!
They turned out so pretty and taste really great, keeping their peep flavor and color to give the treats that pop!
Take the peeps out of the packaging (10 peeps) and in a glass bowl microwave them until they
are nice and fluffy, about double their original size. It took me 45-60 seconds in my microwave.
Then add in the rice krispies, I didn't measure but so start with 1 cup then add 1/2 cup at a time
until it's the ratio you like. Then spread it into a greased 8x8 inch pan.
Let them sit for about 30 minutes to firm up and then cut into squares and serve.
I would never have tried using marshmallow peeps if it wasn't for a fellow blogger!! Comments can spark ideas and lead to new and great things! Please feel free to share your thoughts on my blog.
