Easter Peep Treats

What are Easter Peep Treats you ask? The best way to describe what I made is they’re rice crispy treats made with Fruity Pebbles®. These can obviously be made anytime of year with any mold but because I bought this mold a couple years ago on clearance I thought what a perfect time to utilize them since this is the first year I’ll be hosting Easter. Fun Fact: They’re Gluten Free!!

  4. Quickly place mixture in mold
  5. Cover exposed mixture with wax paper and refrigerate for 1 hour to set

  • Tips:
    • I used a silicon mold so I didn’t spray it with cooking spay if you use a pan and cut into squares use a spray
    •  The mold I used had small crevices (the beak) so I squeezed the beak till I could feel the cereal fill that space.
    • Place wax paper on mixture in the mold and use a spoon to pack the mixture into the molds.20170409_202204925_iOS
