A party is not a party without Rice Krispie Treats but we were initially stumped when brainstorming a good Rice Krispie Treat idea for our Dinosaur Party. Then we realized we could do a fun Dino version of our Rice Krispie Treat Easter Eggs. These Dinosaur Eggs Rice Krispie Treats were the perfect addition to our dinosaur dessert table.  They were super easy to make and ended up being one of the most popular desserts at our Dinosaur Party.

How to Make Dinosaur Eggs Rice Krispie Treats

You will need:

  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispie Cereal
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
  • Food Coloring

How to Make Rice Krispie Treats

For each batch of Rice Krispie Treats you will need 6 tablespoons of butter, 6 cups of mini marshmallows and 6 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal.   Melt the butter in a large pan on medium heat.  Add the marshmallows and stir until melted.

Color the marshmallow mix with food coloring

Turn off the heat and add the food coloring to color the marshmallow mixture.  We wanted some of our Dinosaur Eggs Rice Krispie Treats to be purple and some to be ivory/beige.

Add Rice Krispie Cereal to the marshmallow mixture

Add the Rice Krispie Cereal and gently stir until it is completely covered with the purple melted marshmallow mixture.  Allow the mixture to cool slightly, approximately 10 minutes.

Cover your hands in a small bit of butter, grab a handful of the Rice Krispie Treat mixture and then use your hands to form the Dinosaur Eggs.    We made some eggs smaller and some larger.  Shaping the eggs is super easy to do.

We made a batch of purple eggs and a batch of regular non-colored eggs.

Speckled Dinosaur Eggs Rice Krispie Treats

To add some pizzazz to the Dinosaur Eggs we used some individual pieces of purple Rice Krispie Treat mixture to create “speckles” on the eggs.

We put speckles on all of the regular colored Dinosaur Eggs but only some of the purple ones.

  1. can you make them about a week ago and just put in the fridge and not the freezer??
    Thanks

  2. do you have to use sweet cream butter? or can you use any type of butter?

    • Hi Jewels, you can use any type of butter. We get asked all the time what kind of butter we use, so we always include it in the recipe.

  3. These sound brilliant but how far in advance can I make them?

    • Hi Becky! You can make them quite a bit ahead and freeze them. For our dinosaur party, we made them a couple weeks before the party and defrosted them the morning of the party. Hope that helps!
