Today I've got an amazingly simple and fun treat! It's a great take on a classic favorite, The Rice Krispie Treat, with some fun Easter ingredients added in to create a festive and fun edible party favor that everyone will enjoy!
So I was thinking, what could be more fun for Easter than a marshmallow peep? How about marshmallow peeps perched upon their very own Rice Krispie Treat Nest? I made a batch of these the other day for my husband to carry to work, and they went over very well! (I only wish the photos were a little better, but I was totally rushed!)
Rice Krispy Treat Nests with Easter Peeps
What You'll Need:
6 Cups Rice Krispies
1 Bag Marshmallows
3 Tablespoon stick butter, sliced.
15 Marshmallow Peeps
1 Bag Jelly Beans
Directions: Melt together marshmallow and butter in the microwave or on the stove top on low heat. Add Rice Krispies and stir together. Spoon treat mixture into individual muffin cups. You should have enough to fill about 15 cups. Top each nest with 3 to 5 Jelly Beans. Next top each nest with a peep. You may need to press the peep down to get it to stay atop the next. Chill in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes. Then using a spoon or spatula carefully remove the nests from the muffin tins.
Place on a fun serving tray or place in treat bags for a fun party treat!
Tip: Don't like Peeps? Serve just the nest with a few eggs on top as shown below.
Tip: I found these adorable treat bags at Wal-mart. They were $1.47 for 20 bags, and the treats fit perfectly inside. They also looked super cute, and it made them very portable!
