The kids love to make Rice Krispie treats at anytime. They are a bit sticky to make but they are fun! This year we are making some Easter Egg Treats. The recipes we found used M&Ms but we have a TON of jelly beans right now so we are swapping those ingredients. The recipe comes pretty much from a box of Rice Krispie's cereal, it can also be found on Kellogg's.
So here is the recipe we are going with this year.
3 tablespoons butter
5-6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies
Marshmallows (10oz bag of the large or about 4 1/2 cups of the Miniature)
1/2-1 cup of surprises! We used Jelly Beans but you can use M&Ms, or miniature/bite sized candy too. For some of them we put in dried cranberries and bananas, and some almonds we had here.
Plastic Easter Eggs for molds, we only used about 6 to make the whole batch.
Wash the plastic eggs out, dry, and spray with non stick coating.
Measure out butter and melt over low heat.
Add in marshmallows and stir until melted.
Pour in Rice Krispies and stir until completed coated.
Fill each side of the egg with cereal and make an indent for the candy in one side. Close the eggs and allow to form for a few minutes. Ours took about 3-5 minutes for each.
Remove from egg.
Allow to cool and set.
You can also add frosting to the outside and sprinkles or whatever other creative ideas you can think of, the possibilities are kind of up to the creator!
