Three simple ingredients combined together make one of my absolute favorite treats of all time.
Rice Krispies cereal.
We’re talking about Rice Krispies Treats my friends. They’re easy enough for a child to make (with supervision of course) and can be molded into just about any shape imaginable. For Easter, we thought it would be fun to mold our treats into egg shapes.
It all starts with a very simple recipe … 4 TBS butter and 4 cups of mini marshmallows melted over a low heat along with 7 cups of Rice Krispies cereal mixed in.
You simply use any size of plastic Easter eggs, coated in non-stick cooking spray and stuff them with warm Rice Krispies Treats mix and let them sit for about 10 minutes.
If you’d like to make them extra special, fill the center with a candy before molding the eggs. We used gum eggs for the centers of ours.
While I’m sure there are a million and one ways to decorate these, one flavor combination I love is cereal treats and Wilton candy melts. You can dip and decorate the eggs with bright Easter colors and all sorts of candy decorations.
Tip — To achieve the marbled candy colors seen below, just use a piping bag filled with three different Wilton Candy Melts colors. For these marbled eggs I striped each side of my piping bag with pink, blue and purple.
Another fun way to serve up these Rice Krispies Treat Eggs is to use props. You can put them on sticks with a clear candy bag tied off with ribbon or use these fun Easter Basket Cupcake Wrappers from Wilton.
No matter what treats you bake this Easter, I hope you have fun doing it. Happy Easter friends!
