Peep Rice Krispie Treat Layered Dessert Recipe
Note: Prior to beginning, prepare a cookie sheet (with sides) or jelly roll pan with cooking spray and/or waxed paper. You will need to be able to pull a sheet of prepared Rice Krispie Treats out of it. I used both cooking spray and waxed paper, just to be on the safe side.
  1. Melt your butter in a large microwavable bowl in the microwave for approximately 45 seconds.
  2. Pull your Peeps apart and add them to the microwaveable bowl. Toss the Peeps in the butter to attempt to coat them with butter.
  3. Put the bowl back in the microwave and head for 1½ minutes. Stir the Peep marshmallow mixture. If it's not yet melted, heat for another 30 seconds and stir again. However, once you mix the mixture after that first 1½ minutes, you will likely find that your mixture is smooth and melted.
  4. Add the Rice Krispies to the melted Peep mixture. Stir until coated.
  5. Pour combined mixture into your prepared cookie sheet and flatten your mixture into an even layer. I recommend just using your hands to do this, and have someone handy to occasionally put more cooking spray on your hands.
  6. Allow to cool and harden. I even popped mine in the refrigerator for a bit to help it along.
  7. After your treats have hardened, pull the whole sheet out of your cookie sheet. If you really just want some Peep Rice Krispie Treats, you could just stop here, cut them apart, and enjoy them. However, if you're going for the layered dessert, keep going.
  8. Spread your vanilla frosting on your treat. Then, add sprinkles or coarse sugar for a fun decoration, if desired.
  9. Start at one short end and loosely roll the treat up to make a spiral. Add more sprinkles or coarse sugar to the seam, if desired.
  10. Slice the layered dessert and serve.
