We would be hard pressed to pick our ultimate all-time favorite homemade dessert – it’s either Chocolate Chip Cookies or Rice Krispie Treats. Rice Krispie Treats are so yummy and marshmallow-y that they are usually gobbled up within a day. And you can do so much more with them than just make them into the standard rectangle shaped bars. This year for Easter, we made these pretty colored Rice Krispie Easter Eggs.
How to Make Rice Krispie Easter Eggs
You will need:
- Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Cereal
- Butter (We use Salted, Sweet Cream Butter)
- Mini Marshmallows
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System
The base for our Rice Krispie Easter Eggs is our Best Ever Rice Krispie Treat Recipe which we have adjusted and perfected over the years until it is now absolutely the best Rice Krispie Treat recipe we have ever tasted. You can find all the directions you’ll need to make these delicious treats right here.
First, make a 3 Cup batch of Rice Krispie Treat mixture (3 Tbsp. Butter/3 Cups Mini Marshmallows/3 Cups Cereal). Add the food coloring BEFORE you add the Rice Krispie Cereal.
Let the mixture cool for 4-5 minutes. You need the mixture to still be pliable but not burning hot to the touch.
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 Easter Eggs. We made Rice Krispie Easter Eggs in four fun Easter colors – pink, purple, yellow and blue.
They are so pretty and are going to look lovely on our Easter Brunch table!
