Surprise Rice Krispie Treat Easter Eggs
How hard could it be to stuff some puffed rice cereal, marshmallows and chocolate candy into a plastic egg?
Well, it’s not as simple or effortless as you see in the commercials!
These Surprise Easter Eggs were fun to make, fun to eat, but easy to make?
Not so much.
Actually they were easy, they were just very sticky!
I was forced to eat the rice krispie treat mix that kept sticking to my hands over and over and over and over again. Eating it made more sense than running to the sink repeatedly to wash my hands, and a paper towel would just get stuck.
I was forced to eat it.
It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
It’s a tough life I lead.
That said, my kids loved them and I’ll make them all over again next year just to see the smiles and excitement on their faces (and probably because next Easter is probably the next time I’ll allow Rice Krispie Treats in this house again after learning that I have absolutely ZERO self control around Rice Krispie Treats. ZERO.)
These Surprise Easter Eggs are actually super simple. You just make the Rice Krispie treats like it says on the box (Melt 4 tablespoons of real butter, mix in 4 cups of mini marshmallows or 1 bag of large marshmallows until melted, pour in 6 cups of Rice Krispies. Mix.) and then stuff the mix into your plastic eggs (spray with non stick spray first).
What could be so hard about that?
I even sprayed my hands with non stick spray! (Here’s a really bad pic of me trying to take a picture of my messy messy hands.)
Then you tuck a few Easter M&M’s on either side and close the egg up!
Give it some time to firm up in it’s egg mold and then pull your Surprise Easter Eggs out and chow down!
