In my family, we're not big snackers or dessert eaters, but we all have a severe weakness for gooey, buttery Rice Krispies treats.

Last Easter, my son pleaded with me to buy him some Peeps. John insisted that he couldn't live without them, that he absolutely loved them. Eventually, I gave in, and now, a year later, I recently stumbled upon the unopened package hidden in the back of our pantry.

A few weeks ago, my son became fixated on Peeps once again, insisting that he needed them, had to have them and that he adored them. He proceeded to declare me the worst mom in the entire universe because I said I wouldn't buy him any (remember the unopened package from last year?). But then, during my recent trip to the grocery store, I found myself gazing at a whole shelf of Peeps, pondering what I could create using those colorful treats.

And that's when it hit me. I could incorporate them into our favorite treat - Rice Krispies Treats. So I did, and they turned out to be everything I had hoped for. As a bonus, the vibrant colors of the Peeps brought joy to all of us because who doesn't like a kaleidoscope of colors in their Rice Krispies treats?
