With Easter just a week away, now is the time to start planning all of your Easter desserts. It’s always a tradition in our home to spend a weekend before Easter baking our favorites including sugar cookies, pastel Rice Krispies treats and of course dying Easter Eggs. In fact, my mom will be coming over tomorrow to spend the afternoon with me and the kids whipping up some goodies.
If you’re looking for some ideas, these Rice Krispies M&M cups should get you inspired to get in the kitchen with the kids. All you do is make a traditional Rice Krispies Treats recipe, add some food coloring and shape the treats (while still warm) in large muffin tin cups. I use a small bottle to press in the center and create a space to drop in some treats like pastel M&Ms. Of course you’ll want to wait until the treats have cooled before adding chocolate.
Last year the kids and I had a ton of fun making these dipped and decorated Rice Krispies Treats eggs that have a gumball hidden in the center and they’re dipped in candy melts to make them even sweeter. Jumbo plastic eggs are great for molding the perfect Easter egg shape!
Need even more inspiration? Kellogg’s Rice Krispies as an amazing collection of Easter sweets and treats recipes available online including these fun Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats. There are so many ways to use this simple cereal and I for one think you’ll have a blast making these with your children. That’s why I’ve partnered with Kellogg’s to offer a quick Easter giveaway that includes an Easter basket, marshmallows, pastel M&Ms, Rice Krispies cereal and a recipe card to make these!
