Easter Egg Krispie Treats

  • dessertseasterRecipe
  • I am SO excited for Easter this year because my family is coming to visit! They live in Florida and I don’t see them nearly as much as I want to. My younger sister texted me the other day and said “U better have an Easter egg hunt set up for me when we get there!!!” How old is she? Well, she’s a college student!

    Yeah, we’re silly.

    Easter Egg Krispie Treats
    Making the big Easter meal can be quite daunting, but dessert doesn’t have to be. Make something cute and simple, something that you can make ahead of time, to save yourself some stress! And if you aren’t hosting Easter, this would be the perfect thing for you to bring. It’s festive and they travel great! This would also be a really fun activity for the kids in the bunch to make, get some sprinkles and let them go crazy!
    I found these adorable egg trays at WalMart for 98 cents this week and used them to cram the rice krispies treat mix into. You can also use a deviled egg tray or dish.

    You can decorate them several ways. You can cover them in white chocolate and then shower them with sprinkles, use colored decorating gels to jazz them up, or melt candy discs and drizzle them over the eggs.

    Easter Egg Krispie Treats
         makes 24 eggs
    20 large marshmallows
    1 1/5 T butter
    3 C Rice Krispies Cereal
    Decorations {white chocolate, sprinkles, colored candy discs, colored gels, ect.}
    This recipe is 1/2 of a regular batch of Rice Krispies {by the way, you could also use Fruity Pebbles!}.
    In a microwave safe bowl, melt the marshmallows and butter together until smooth. Add in the cereal and stir to combine. Spray the egg trays with non-stick cooking spray and quickly fill each egg well with the cereal mixture. It might help to spray the hand that is pushing the cereal down with non-stick spray also. Use a cutting board or the back of a baking sheet to firmly pack the cereal into the trays.
    Let cool completely, then decorate.
    The funfetti ones are my favorite.
     There are a few cute ways to display them. Put them over some of the fake green grass that is available around Eater. Put them back in the trays and turn them right side up. If you have a cupcake stand, decorate it with fake grass and place an egg in each spot.

      Very creative, love these little treats. Definitely something better than the same old eggs or chocolate bunny. Also, it looks like something that the kids can help with. Great post Buzz buzz!
