Rice Krispy Easter Eggs

Rice Krispy Easter Egg Cookies

Each year we decorate Easter Eggs as a family.  It’s a lot of fun and everyone enjoys participating and coming up with unique designs.  The only downside is that we typically end up with more hard boiled eggs than we can possibly eat.

Because of that, we decided to do something different this year.  Rice Krispy Easter Eggs!

Ingredients Needed

  • Six Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 1 Package of Marshmallows (10oz)
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter

Directions

  • Melt the butter in a pan over low heat.
  • Add in marshmallows and stir until melted.  Remove from heat.
  • Stir in Rice Krispies cereal.
  • Grease an 9×13 pan.  Scoop out the cereal mixture and pack it into the pan (it will be about 1/2 inch thick).  Tip:  Used a buttered spatula to prevent the cereal from sticking.
  • Let the pan cool for a1-2 hours.  The mixture should be cool but not hard.
  • Use a knife (or cookie cutter) to cut out egg shapes.  Then use your hands to fine tune the shape.  We got eggs from the 9×13 pan.
  • Frost each egg and then decorate with sprinkles and candy.  Side Note:  I used special care when pipping the frosting onto each “egg” using different designs.  After putting the sprinkles on, you can’t really see the designs.  Next time I’ll make it easier on myself and skip the special designs.
  • Enjoy!

These were really fun to make and extremely good.  We definitely didn’t have any problems eating up the entire batch!  I hope your family enjoys making them as much as mine did.

    These look awesome! Great idea, especially with little ones, when using dye can get a little messy. I shared this on my blog, too :)!

      My kids always make a mess with the dye! That’s another one of the reasons I liked making these vs. hard boiled eggs. Thanks for sharing the idea on your blog!

    Your next to the last line sums up why I cannot ever make Rice Krispy treats!! No one else in my house loves them and can take them or leave them. Me? I would eat ALL of them immediately. So good!!

    Your eggs are really pretty! And thanks for sharing the tip about the decoration not really showing after putting on the sprinkles. Now I know not to spend time doing that! :)
