Peeps for Easter!

I must admit that though these little colorful, squishy buggers hold a lot of memories and nostalgia, the idea of pounding some back kind of grosses me out these days.  However, I am still a HUGE fan of Rice Krispies Treats, and Peeps are essentially just colorful marshmellows.  1+1= colorful Peeps popcorn with a Rice Krispies Treat flare!

DSC_1501After you pop the popcorn, get ready to melt a package of Peeps (or these $1 store bunnies).  Make sure to melt a tablespoon of butter with each package, and stir.
