Prepare an 8-9" loaf pan by lining with foil and spraying lightly with cooking spray.
Divide the Peeps by 10s of the same color - 10 pink, 10 yellow, etc. (use any colors you like).
In a deep, medium sized microwaveable dish, microwave 10 of the same color peeps with 1 tablespoon of butter on high for 45 seconds. Because microwaves vary, watch closely so the Peeps don't flow over the sides of the bowl. Stir butter and Peeps together until fully melted and incorporated. (*tip - spray a spatula with cooking spray before stirring).
Stir in 1 1/2 cups of cereal until fully coated. Press firmly into the loaf pan.
Repeat steps 3-4 with the other Peeps colors.
Allow to cool completely (1-2 hours) before slicing.
