Easter Egg Peeps® Pops!

When I think of Easter treats...two come to mind, Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs (one of my all-time favs!) and of course, the infamous Marshmallow Peeps®! How can you not make an Easter basket without one of these two?! I decided to kick it up a notch this year and turn my fabulous Rice Krispie treats into something super fun, super festive and SUPER colorful! Instead of using regular old marshmallows, I subbed them out for PEEPS®!!! Genius I tell ya! Not only did they turn out gorgeous, but they were so so so easy! I'm telling you, EASY. PEASY! 

Serving Size:

10 Pops

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter (divided)
  • 4 3-ounce packages Marshmallow Peeps® (in 4 different colors)
  • 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal (divided)
  • Pinch of salt (per color)
  • White candy wafers
  • Easter or Spring sprinkles

Misc.:

  • Lollipop sticks or popsicle sticks
  • Egg shaped cookie cutter

Instructions:

  1. Prepare an 8-9" loaf pan by lining it with parchment paper and non-stick spray, set aside.
  2. Divide the Peeps® by multiples of 10 of the same color - 10 pink, 10 yellow, 10 blue, 10 purple. (or use any colors you'd like!)
  3. In a deep, medium sized microwavable bowl, microwave 10 of the same color Peeps® with 1 tablespoon of butter on high for 45 seconds. (Because microwaves vary, watch closely so the Peeps® don't flow over the sides of the bowl.)
  4. Stir the butter and Peeps® together until fully melted and incorporated. (Tip: Spray a spatula with non-stick spray before stirring to avoid sticking)
  5. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of cereal and a pinch of salt until fully combined. Press firmly into the loaf pan.
  6. Repeat steps 3-4 with the other Peeps® colors. 
  7. Allow to cool completely (1-2 hours) before slicing or cutting into shapes.
  8. Remove the Peeps® Rice Krispie loaf from the pan and slice into 10 1-inch slices.
  9. Take the egg cutter and punch out one egg from each slice.
  10. Insert the lollipop stick gently at the bottom of the egg shape.
  11. Melt the candy wafers according to the package directions in a microwave safe bowl. 
  12. Drizzle each egg with the white chocolate, then add some fun, festive sprinkles to complete your treat!
  13. Enjoy!
