The sun if fighting to bring spring out and to warm up the Earth but Mother Nature gave us a surprise with a late snowstorm this morning. But another sure sign that Spring is almost here is when Peeps starting arriving in the stores! When you see those marshmallow chicks and bunnies you know warm days are coming soon. And now they have Peeps cereal! Just like the iconic bunny and chick marshmallow treats there is a Peeps cereal. And what better way to usher spring in than to make Peeps Cereal Marshmallow treats??
To make these Peeps Cereal Marshmallow Treats at home you will need to the following –
If you like a marshmallowy treat use 4 cups of cereal.
You are going to start off with heating your pot on low until the butter is completely melted.
Then add in the marshmallows and continue to with low heat until the marshmallows are melted. You will want to stir these to make sure they do not burn and that there are no lumps.
Remove your pan from the heat and mix in the cereal a cup at a time until you have the marshmallow to cereal ratio you prefer.
Spray a pan with nonstick spray.
Pour the cereal marshmallow mixture into the pan and press down with a spatula or wax paper.
Let the mixture cool for about an hour and then slice into 2-inch squares.
These taste the best the day you make them but if you need to, you can store them in an airtight container and enjoy them for a few more days.
