Ingredients

  • 15 oz Peeps marshmallows 5 3-ounce packages, different colors
  • 5 TBSP butter
  • 6 ½ cups rice krispies

Instructions

Prep

  • Start by separating all of the different colored peeps from one another and place them into 5 separate microwave-safe bowls. You want the bowls to be large enough to fit the melted marshmallow and some rice krispies too.

Melt Marshmallows

  • Next, add 1 tablespoon of butter to each bowl.
  • One by one, heat each bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Then stir until smooth. Repeat in 10 second intervals as needed until completely melted. Be careful, marshmallow melts quickly, you don't want to burn them.
  • Once all have been melted, divide the rice crispies into each bowl. This will be about 1 ⅓ cups of cereal per bowl. Stir thoroughly to coat the cereal well.
  • If you want to complete one bowl at a time, melting the marshmallows and adding the crispies, that would work as well. Whatever works best for you, the end results will be the same.

Stack the Layers

  • Next, lightly spray the inside of a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • Then, using a spoon or clean hands, press the crispies into the pan.
  • Start with a blue layer one bottom, pressing into an even layer.
  • Then, spread and press the purple layers on top of the blue one.
  • Continue doing the same with the green, pink, and yellow layers, until all colors have been added.

Set and Serve

  • Cover the pan with foil or plastic wrap and let sit for about 2 hours until it has had time to set.
  • Once set, remove the foil and flip the pan over to remove the treats onto a cutting board.
  • Carefully slice the brick into 1 inch thick slices.
  • Serve and enjoy your festive treats!
