This is a fun and yummy project you and your kids can make this Easter.
To make these delicious and cute treats, you’ll need:
- 6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 package (10 oz.) marshmallows
- Sweetened shredded coconut
- Green food coloring
- Pretzel sticks
- Peeps marshmallow chicks
- Large plastic eggs that can open/split in half
- Butter-flavored cooking spray
- Small candies
Make some Rice Krispy treats using the recipe printed on the cereal box.
Spray the insides of large (and clean) plastic eggs with butter-flavored cooking spray. Fill each plastic egg half with the cereal treats while still warm and pliable. Use your thumb to create an indentation inside each egg half.
Carefully remove the formed cereal treat from each egg half.
Fill the thumbprint hole with your favorite candy (we like jelly beans and peanut m&m’s). Press the halves together to form the cereal treat eggs.
Decorate with marshmallow Peeps, “grass” and “twigs” and enjoy!
To make the “grass”, tint sweetened coconut flakes green using a few drops of green food coloring. Use pretzel sticks for the twigs.
Have fun and enjoy these delicious treats!
