Food Fridays: Marshmallow Rice Krispie Treat Eggs




What you'll need:
extra large plastic eggs(ours came with little people inside from Target).
1 box of rice krispies cereal
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1/4 stick of butter
one bag of small sized candy for inside the eggs (I used gummy bears)

**Recipe makes 10 eggs**


First wash the eggs and dry then prepare the rice krispie mixture as directed on the box if you don't have a recipe just pour the bag of marshmallows in to a large glass bowl and place in the microwave on high until they are all fluffy then melt the butter in a small bowl or cup and pour 3/4 of it on the marshmallows  then stir and add the box of Rice Krispies mix until well blended.


Then with the left over melted butter use a pastry brush to coat the inside of the eggs
 and fill the eggs with the marshmallow krispie mixture.


 Butter will help the mixture to not stick to your fingers and make it easier to press the crispies into the eggs and make sure to indent the centers to leave room for the candy filling. After filling the eggs press the two halves together firmly then remove the bottom half of the plastic egg then with your hand firmly press and mold the two halves until completely together and remove the other plastic egg half.



Place the rice kripsy treat eggs in the fridge until set and serve.

  2. Made this today for a preschool Easter party and they loved it I used Jelly Beans and they were so excited by the surprise inside. I did use a little shortening on my hands to help mold them into the eggs. BIG HIT, thank you!

  3. I will try these, however, they look pretty bland. So thinking I might drizzle with pastel colored white chocolate. Any other ideas to "jazz" them up a bit?

    1. That is a great idea! I've seen them decorated with white chocolate and sprinkles. I have picky kids when it comes to sweets and they don't like white chocolate so I thought about using different colored marshmallows to add a punch of color to the kris pie eggs.
