We love Rice Krispie Treats. And we love Easter Peeps. So what could be better than Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps? If you answered … absolutely nothing then we are on the same page. We used a great Wilton Easter Peeps mold and our versatile Rice Krispie Treat recipe to create these adorable Easter treats.
How to Make Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps
You will need:
- Kellogg’s Rice Krispie Cereal
- Mini Marshmallows
- Butter (Sweetcream, Salted)
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System
- Wilton Peeps Bunny Treat Mold
- Mini Chocolate Chips
For each color batch of Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps you make you will need 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 cups of marshmallows and 2 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal. Melt the butter in a large pan on medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. I was able to make 8 Peeps out of this size batch of the Rice Krispie Treat mixture.
To tint the Rice Krispie Treat mixture, add food coloring to the melted marshmallow mixture before you add the Rice Krispie cereal. We used the follow food coloring combinations to make these pretty iconic Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps:
Pink: 2 small drops of Pink Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
Yellow: 2 drop of Yellow Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
Purple: 4 drops of Pink Wilton Color Right Food Coloring and 2 drops of Blue Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
Blue: 2 drops of Blue Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
This is our Wilton Peeps Bunny Treat Mold. We found this Joann’s Fabric and Crafting Store. But here is something similar on Amazon. This is a great mold. We used it for another fun Easter Treats – our Homemade Peeps Chocolate Crackle Candy.
We made one color of the Rice Krispie Treat mixture at a time because you don’t want the mixture to cool too much while you are making the Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps. Once the mixture had cooled enough so we could handle it without burning our fingers we started filling the mold to form our Peeps.
Pop the Peeps out of the mold and as a final touch, press three mini chocolate chips into the Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps for the eyes and nose.
Super adorable and super easy to make!
Our Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps look just like the originals!
