I am a sucker for a rice krispy treat. Seriously what is there not to love. The are sticky, sweet, crunchy and down right yummy. When I was pregnant I often had one stashed in my purse. I use to love peeps. Make that stale peeps. Something about stale peeps and red vines for me. Although peeps are not on the top of my list anymore they are still super cute and scream Easter. Carter and I made these yesterday afternoon and the plan was to deliver them to all his "peeps" but, Campbell got sick and we couldn't leave the house. We had a great time making them and he felt very involved in the process. If you need a cute no bake Easter treat these are perfect. Adorable. Delicious. Done!
So there you go my peeps ... Happy Easter!
