i spotted these peanut butter m&m’s SPECKLED EGGS last night at the grocery store, and immediately knew i had to make some friday treats with them!

i already had marshmallows and rice krispies in my kitchen, so i decided to whip up some quick & easy peanut butter treats with the m&m’s stirred it for some fun spring flare (since the snow outside is doing nothing for us in terms of spring flare…)

these treats are super speedy since they don’t require baking. i used the rice krispie treat recipe from my brain (it’s a life requirement to have that memorized!) and simply added a couple ingredients to fancy them up a bit.

I like the coconut and mint m & ms. However, we found a bag of carrot cake m & ms that were pretty wicked! Very rich!

The last treat was … wait for it … mint m & ms! Boo-yah!

We lucked out on the snow. The towns to the north and south both got like 8″!!!! So thankful for the doughnut hole over us!

Cuteness; I love the speckles!

1. My favorite m&m’s are the dark chocolate peppermint ones. I also really enjoyed the limited edition candy cane white chocolate ones too though.
2. I am drinking an english toffee tea latte this very minute as a treat :)

Those PB krispies look amazing!! Yum!!
My favorite kind of M&M is a toss up between the PB M&M’s or the Pretzel ones. Both are sooo good.
Last treat I ate was a bag of “Moose Poo” (chocolate covered raisins) that I got from my foodie penpal.

Peanut butter m&ms are definitely my favorite, but the pretzel ones come in at a close second. After 2 samoas and 4 thin mints, I should probably be done, but I’m not. :) I’ll be healthy tomorrow! haha
