Instant Pot Layered Rice Krispie Treats Using Peeps

Sharing is caring!

We love Rice Krispie Treats at our house. We love to make them and we love to eat them. I actually have a go-to-list of different Rice Krispie Treat recipes.

Have you ever used Peeps to make Rice Krispie Treats? Peeps are color coated marshmallows, so they are the perfect way to make your treats festive!

Did you know you can also use your Instant Pot to make the treats? Your Instant Pot has a sauté feature and is a great way to make Rice Krispie Treats when you’re camping, your stovetop is being used for other things, or just because. The Instant Pot can be used to sauté and brown, and that feature is perfect for melting marshmallows.

How will we make the treats square? Grab a 6 qt (9×13) Pyrex dish. This will hold three layers of colors. 

Let me tell you how we did this. It’s super simple and the kids will love helping.

If you’re wondering which InstantPot is my favorite, this is the one I use and love.

Ingredients

Directions

Set Instant Pot to Saute and add 1 ½ tablespoons of butter.

Use a silicone brush to brush butter up the sides of the Instant Pot liner.

Once butter is melted, hit cancel twice so the keep warm function starts.

Add in 10 peeps and stir until melted completely.

Stir in 1 ½ cups rice krispies and turn off Instant Pot.

Scoop mixture into a greased 6 qt pyrex dish.

Press 1st layer down until it fills all the space.

Wash liner and repeat the above steps for each color of peeps.

 

Let set to firm up before cutting.

Enjoy!

  1. As soon as March rolls around, that’s my cue to start baking up fun and colorful Easter recipes. I just tried out this Instant Pot Layered Peeps Rice Krispie Treats recipe and it was so much fun! We had company over this weekend and everyone gobbled it up and asked for the recipe. It was so delicious! 🙂

  2. This was fantastic – the kids loved the vibrant colours that the peeps gave to the treats and I loved how easy it was to make with them in the instant pot. We’ll be making these again before Easter this year.

  3. Oh my kids love anything marshmallow and they can’t get enough of rice krispie treats when I allow them. This is certainly the perfect treat for them and easy for me!
