Need a quick idea for a fun easter treat for the kids? These are super easy and sure to please!
Just follow your typical directions for making rice crispy treats, but instead of placing them in a pan, make them into Easter egg shapes!
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
4 cups marshmallows (I actually did 5 and added more rice crispies too)
5 cups rice crispies (I did 6 cups here)
Melt butter in large pot on low. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until they are all melted. Take off heat and add your rice crispies. Stir lightly until evenly covered.
Then I lightly buttered the inside of the eggs I used for this first and then just started spooning some into each egg. You may want to get some little helpers to make it go faster, before the rice crispy treat mixture cools too quickly. (And they will love helping anyway!)
I served mine still in the eggs, so no need for decorating, BUT...f you want them more colorful, you can serve them OUT of the plastic eggs and add some sprinkles or mini m&ms pressed into them.
So fun and so quick and easy!
