Peeps Rice Krispies Treats For Peeps Week

I have to admit, I’m really having a fun time creating different treats for Peeps Week.   Today’s treat is Peeps Rice Krispies Treats.    These are super quick and easy, and a great treat to let the kids help with.   Here’s what you need…

You could certainly make your own Rice Krispies treats, but I went with the pre-made version to keep this quick and simple.    You’ll want to have Rice Krispies treats, melting chocolate, Peeps and then whatever you want to use to decorate with.  We used a variety of sprinkles and coconut for ours.   You can also use popsicle sticks or lollipop sticks if you like.

The first thing I did was cut my peeps in half.  You certainly don’t have to do this, but I think it worked out well.

They do get a bit smooshed, but within a few minutes they sort of puff back up to their regular shape.

After you have your Peeps ready, prepare your melting chocolate according to the directions on your package.    Also, if you would like to use some green coconut as grass, I found the best way to color my coconut was to put a bit of food coloring into a plastic container with my coconut and then shake well.

You will than spoon a coating of chocolate on top of your Rice Krispy treat.

After that, apply your Peep.  My daughter selected a chicky Peep…

I opted for a bunny Peep…

And then add your sprinkles or coconut…

My girl added a few Robin’s Egg candies and extra sprinkles to complete hers…

Aww, look how cute hers turned out…

By adding a few sticks to your treats, you’ve created Peeps Rice Krispies Treat Pops.

So quick and so CUTE!

And we can’t forget about our cute little Peeps chicks…

One more look at the pops version…

Love them!  My daughter had a great time making these, and the whole project took less then 30 minutes.

    Thanks so much everyone. I’m loving coming up with Peeps treats – just so colorful and fun. My daughter is already asking what holiday we will do these for next. Thinking cap on! :)

    Loving this cute treat! Just wondering, you say to melt the chocolate according to the package- are there directions on the back of the Peeps? How much of each ingredient is used? Thanks!

      Caroline – there should be directions on the back of whichever melting chocolate you buy (not on the Peeps). I like Wiltons, which can usually be easily found at Michaels, Hobby Lobby or Walmart, or there are a number of good bark type melting chocolates that are usually on the baking isle at the grocery store. As to amounts, I’m very unscientific – I just spoon on however much looks right. You can spoon a nice light coating on, or you can completely coat the krispy treat in chocolate, whatever you like the best.

    Wow, these are seriously CUTE!! I was just showing my son (now in his late teens) this blog post, wishing I would’ve thought up such creative things when he was little. He just laughed and said he wouldn’t mind now. He’ll even help me! So I guess I’ll be doing this neat peep goodie soon!

    These are absolutely adorable!! I’m making the ones on the sticks for my elementary class on Thursday… I know they are going to love them!! Just had a quick question… do you coat both sides of the rice krispie square with chocolate or just the one?
