Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats
A classic rice krispie treat made with Peep marshmallows, covered in white chocolate, and shaped into an Easter egg decorated with SPRINKLES and candy melts for a fun Easter treat!
It’s that time of year…time for Peeps! Peeps seem to be one of those candies that you either LOVE them, or you HATE them. Personally, I love them. So fluffy and colorful, kind of like SPRINKLES, Peeps just make me happy!
And these rice krispie treats make me even happier! They’re made with melted colorful Peeps and rice cereal, and covered in bright white candy melts. I used a egg shaped cookie cutter to shape them into Easter eggs and decorated each krispie treat with SPRINKLES and pink, yellow, and lime green candy melts. Perfect Easter treat for the kids of all ages!
These are so delicious! They taste just like original krispy treats just a bit sweeter, with a whole lot of Easter spirit! If you’re looking for a quick, cheerful treat to make this Easter, or Spring for that matter, give these a try. Hopefully they make you smile too.
