One of my favorite times of Spring, is the week leading up to and including Easter Day! It’s just a special time of year and I look forward to doing crafts and celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ with our family. I’ll be sharing our projects and ideas on how to make this a fun week in your house all week long with you!
Yesterday we dyed Easter Eggs and today we made Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats out of Rice Krispies Treats! These fun to eat and fun to make yummy eggs are as simple as making the traditional Rice Krispies recipe, filling large plastic eggs with the gooey stuff and then filling with a special treat and sealing. That’s it! The kids LOVED seeing what was in their eggs when I gave them to them!
Here’s a step-by-step on these fun eggs!
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats
3 Tbs of butter or margarine
1 pkg regular marshmallows OR 4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
1/2 cup M&M’s Chocolate Candies
12 plastic snap-apart 3×2 Easter eggs
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add KELLOGG’S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using 1/3-cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray divide warm cereal mixture into portions. Using buttered hands shape each portion into egg shape. Cool. Decorate with frosting and/or candies. Best if served the same day.
