How to Make: Rice Crispy Peep Treats

It’s that time of year when those Peep Treats appear on the store shelves. They brightly shine among the Easter candy. Yes, they are festive. Yes, they remind us of a certain holiday. Yes, they are almost an Easter Basket staple. But, ARE THEY a fan favorite? Peeps get a bit of a bad rap. Here is a great way to use them in a fun and festive sweet treat! They never will go to waste again!


Approximately 20-24 Peeps of any color
6 -7 cups of Crispy Rice Cereal
6-8 tblsps of butter

Preheat oven to 400*F

Butter a 9×13 cake pan
Line up your Peeps Marshmello treats in rows

Completely cover Peeps with your Crispy Rice Cereal. Let those Peep heads slightly peek out! LOL

Add pats of butter across the top of the cereal

Place pan in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Check after 6 minutes since each oven is differnt. Peeps will begin to puff up and the tops will appear toasted.

Butter should be melted. Remove from oven and stir all ingredients together.

Press firmly into pan and cool. Cut into squares and serve!  SO oooey goooey and delicious!

Optional: Sprinkle topping – sugars, confetti treats, m&ms, etc…

This is perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth!

12 Days of Christmas: Rustic Holiday Decoration – Step by Step Photo Tutorial

12 Days of Christmas: Rustic Holiday Decoration – Step by Step Photo Tutorial

If anyone is looking for a rustic holiday decoration, I have just the thing for you! I did these easy jute covered balloon balls and they turned out so awesome. Below you can see my step by step process from start to finish. This idea has me thinking in all kinds of creative directions using string art to decorate for the holidays. I may have to make more! In the meantime check out my picture tutorial and follow along today.


First I gathered all the supplies I needed. (See photo above)
Water Balloons, Scissors, Paint brush, Mod Podge, and Jute.
I also used rubber gloves and a tupperware container that are not pictured.


I blew up the balloons to be mini balls, and then I added the Mod Podge to the tupperware container.


I proceeded to dunk the jute into the mod podge and then wrap it around the balloon using my rubber gloves for protection.



I wrapped about 20 times.



Then I used the paint brush to reinforce the mod podge to the jute.


I let it dry for 24 hours.



Once it was all dry, I popped the balloon and removed it from the middle of the ball.




The jute stayed in place!! Woohoo!! I then used a tweezer to get any extra mod podge out of the gaps and make the ball look cleaner.




I added an ornament hook to the ball and hung it on my tree!
