... Or is it Peeps Krispie Treats? Or Rice Krispie Peeps?
Anyway, I murdered some Peeps to make this recipe.
I creamated Peeps marshmallows left over from Easter and reincarnated them as Rice Peepsie Treats. I followed the original Rice Krispie Treats recipe on the back of the cereal box, but subbed in my yellow friends for some of the marshmallows. (Since I only had two packages of Peeps (10 total), I had to use some plain marshmallows, too.)
I had originally wanted different colored Peeps to make a rainbow-colored mish-mash, but since I only had yellow ones, I added some drops of food coloring to the marshmallows to make my technicolored Rice Peepsie Treats.
These are definitely better than plain Rice Krispie Treats. Anything rainbow-colored tastes better, right?
