Peeps Marshmallow Treats for Easter

Peeps Marshmallow Treats

Hippity hop, Easter is on its way. And we have been making some delicious treats to prepare. Not just any treats… Peeps Marshmallow Treats. When I say marshmallow I really mean MARSHMALLOW. Like, the entire recipe is almost one big marshmallow mound of goodness… covered by a Marshmallow Peep.

Imagine taking a sweet, fruity cereal and mixing it with melted marshmallows, adding a soft marshmallow creme on top, and then topping it with a delectable, fluffy sugary treat. All of that is how we made our Peeps Marshmallow Treats. Just take a look!

  • 10 oz bag of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Post Fruity Pebbles Cereal

  2. Next, stir in the Fruity Pebbles slowly in order to fully blend with marshmallow mixture.
  3. Once fully combined, spoon mixture into muffin tin in order to form cupcake-like shape. Let set for about 5 minutes.Peep Treats
  4. Place Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme into a microwave-safe bowl and soften. (should take about 15-20 seconds)
  5. Take marshmallow treats from pan and place on plate or parchment paper. Spoon melted marshmallow creme evenly over top.
  6. Cover marshmallow creme with sprinkles, if desired, and then set a Marshmallow Peep Chick on top of the sweet treat. Serve and enjoy!Marshmallow Peep Chick
