BAKE-OFF: Rice Krispie Easter Eggs

HEADER

Rice Krispie treats are somewhat nostalgic for me. Reminds me of my childhood and oh how totally awesome my mum was for always making the coolest Rice Krispie balls. My mum didn’t make the traditional squares, oh no, not my mum, she was the pioneer of pinterest, she didn’t need inspiration to make the next treat-trend, she oozed fun ideas. I swear she was the first one to come up with stuffing Rice Krispie Balls; from gummy worms and jube-jubes to anything she could get her hands on, possibilities were endless. These memories are good ones, sweet ones, ones I will never forget.

So by now you should be well aware of what this bake-off is all about, BUT in case you’re late to the party {over 4 months late}….. here is what you’ve missed. Fellow lifestyle bloggers, Hillary and Jen, tackle recipes we find and love online. I make the regular version, in all it’s sugary, fatty, carb-loaded glory while Hillary concocks and shares a healthier version and Jen takes a ninja approach, she adjusts my recipe so much so that she makes it healthy enough to eat 7 days a week, she’s that good!

We started with an Apple Strudel, worked our way into a traditional Cheeseball , then into a Snackmix and last month into a Pasta Alfredo; now here today we give you a a Rice Krispie Easter Egg, 3 ways!

Rice Krispie Easter Eggs {original recipe here}

1/4 cup Butter
40 Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
Milk Chocolate Chips | any chocolate alternative will work 
Sprinkles
Plastic Easter Egg
Water

DIRECTIONS
In a large saucepan, melt Butter over low heat. Stir in Marshmallows and until melted. Remove from heat. Add the Rice Krispies and stir until well coated.

Dip your plastic Easter egg into a bowl of cold Water, including your hands {this part gets sticky and water is key}. Press and mold even amounts of prepared Rice Krispie treats into the Easter egg. Squish together tightly to ensure they are stuck together, open the egg and set aside. Make all your eggs and setup in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Next you’ll melt your Chocolate Chips in microwave, dip your Rice Krispie Eggs into the chocolate half-way and then sprinkle them with your chosen Sprinkles. Let cool and enjoy!

  1. I love this! Now I have more ideas as I was planning to make some of these before Easter.

  2. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.

    Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks

    • Thanks! We had our design made via Dinosaur Stew’s etsy shop.
      Glad you love it so much…
