Me and my little buddy spent the morning getting our Easter on by whipping up a batch of these Krispy Easter Eggs, courtesy of The Pioneer Woman (LOVE HER!). These cute little guys are an egg-cellent Easter treat to make with your kiddos. They’re a colorful, tasty and simple way to get into the holiday spirit, so let’s get crackin’!
Place 4 tablespoons of butter in a large pot. When melted, stir in 10 ounces of mini-marshmallows and mix until smooth.
Add in 6 cups of Rice Krispies and mix.
Next, lightly spray the insides of 12 plastic easter eggs with cooking spray and unwrap 12 chocolate candies of your choice.
Stuff one half with Rice Krispie mixture, press in chocolate candy, fill the other half and press together.
A few seconds later, remove the Krispy egg from the plastic egg.
Sprinkle-it-up and place in an egg holder to set.
That’s all, Yolks!
Happy Easter, Friends!
- 4 Tablespoons Butter
- 1 package (10 Ounces) Mini Marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispies
- Assorted Sprinkles
- Small Chocolate Easter Eggs
- Plastic Easter Eggs
In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat, then add rice cereal and stir until well coated.
Lightly spray interior of the plastic eggs with non-stick cooking spray. If mixture is too sticky, you can also spray your hands. Fill both sides of the plastic egg with rice cereal mixture, slightly over-filling one side. Press chocolate egg in the center on one side of the egg, then close the plastic egg to shape it. (It should be full enough to meet with a little resistance as you close it.) Gently release the rice cereal egg from the mold, decorate with your choice of sprinkles and set aside in egg crate until set.
