We have an incredible giveaway and you can find out all about at my Welcome Post and enter to win at the bottom of this post.

Today I am sharing a recipe that I made using Peeps instead of traditional marshmallows. Peeps provided me with several packages of chicks and bunnies for this event.  I used the packages of chicks for this treat.  This easy peasy recipe is none other than that iconic dessert called Marshmallow Krispy Treats.

It takes a bit longer because we are making 3 separate small batches so that we get the rainbow effect.  Instead of putting it into a baking pan we are going to layer it into a loaf pan.

Everybody loves Krispy treats and these rainbow treats made with Peeps chicks are sure to be a hit with your whole family.

Before I share this recipe let's take a look at what the others are sharing today.......
