4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
40 Peeps marshmallow chicks, assorted colors
4 tablespoons butter

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat.

Remove from heat and add Rice Krispies cereal.
Gently fold cereal into Peeps marshmallow until it’s evenly coated and swirl together.
Coat 11 x 8 x 2-inch pan with cooking spray (trust us.) Evenly press mixture into the pan.
