Why make boring Rice Krispie treats when you can make colorful and festive bar treats using Peeps and Rice Krispie cereal? You can use any 4 colors of Peeps that you prefer--or even double up on two colors for a half-and-half treat. To make pops: Cut 1-inch think slices widthwise, and then cut the slices in half. Insert a cake pop stick into the bottom of each treat, dip in melted chocolate, and decorate with sprinkles or crushed candy pieces. Display pops in a jar or candle votive holder stuffed with Styrofoam.

How to Make It

Step 1

Grease 1, 8-9" loaf pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

In a medium-sized microwaveable dish, microwave 10 Peeps of the same color with 1 tablespoon of butter on high for 1 minute. Immediately stir together until smooth. (*Spraying a spatula with cooking spray will help the mixture not to stick.)

Step 3

Stir in 1 1/2 cups of cereal until fully coated. Press mixture evenly into the bottom of the loaf pan.

Step 4

Repeat steps 2-3 with the next three layers, pressing each colored mixture firmly and evenly on top of the previous layer. Cool completely, around 1-2 hours, before slicing. Cut 1-inch think slices widthwise, and then cut the slices in half.  Serve on a cake stand or insert a cake pop stick into the bottom of each treat to make cereal pop treats. Display pops in a jar or candle votive holder stuffed with Styrofoam.
