Giant Peep Cereal Treat

With Easter right around the corner, the grocery stores are filling up with all kinds of candy, from cream filled eggs, to jelly beans, chocolate bunnies and best of all... PEEPS!

Want a fun and creative way to enjoy Peeps this Easter? Well, what better way, than to incorporate them into a GIANT Peep Cereal Treat?!

You can really use ay type of cereal, from classic Rice Krispies to the Honey Nut Cheerios, I used, for a perfect crispy, marshmallowy, XXL Peep for one!

Giant Peep Cereal Treat For One

  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus extra for greasing the pan
  • 2 (12-pack) packages bunny Peeps, any color
  • 1 1/2 cups cereal, any type
  • food coloring (color of your Peeps)
  • 3 mini chocolate chips


Line a small loaf pan (8"x4") with wax paper and thoroughly butter or spray with non-stick cooking spray. In a small saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over low heat. Add 10 peeps (reserve last 2 peeps for display).

Stir over low heat until completely melted. 

Turn off heat and add cereal, stirring until well coated.

Pour into prepared pan.

Using buttered spatula or spoon press mixture flat and let cool slightly. 

Once slightly cooled, but still warm and pliable, remove from pan and shape into a Peeps bunny, using your hands, about 8" tall (Large circle on bottom, slightly smaller circle in the middle and two ears on top).

Next, melt your second package of Peeps (12 Peeps) with 1 tablespoon of butter. Add a few drops of food coloring to match the color of your Peeps. Once melted completely, pour over your cereal treat bunny.

Use a buttered spatula or spoon to spread over the top and sides of your bunny.

Add your mini chocolate chips to make eyes and a nose.

Display on a plate with your 2 remaining Peeps and pipe some grass and a special note with green frosting or cookie icing, if desired. Enjoy!
