Ingredients:

  • 6 cups rice cereal
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • medium- to large-sized plastic Easter eggs

Directions:

Step 1:

Make the regular rice krispies

You'll make the regular rice cereal treats as directed: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and the marshmallows on high for three minutes, stirring at two minutes. Stir until smooth.

Step 2:

Add cereal

Pour the rice cereal and mix together until the rice cereal is well coated.

Step 3:

Wash egg

Wash the plastic Easter eggs and dry.

Step 4:

Spray inside of egg

Spray butter spray lightly on the insides of the eggs.

Step 5:

Stick rice kripies inside of egg

Stick little chunks of rice cereal on the inside edges of the egg.

Step 6:

Press

Using your thumb, pat the inside edges firmly so the rice cereal becomes smooth and firm.

Step 7:

Repeat

Repeat to the other half part of the plastic egg.

Step 8:

Close egs

Close the egg tightly.

Step 9:

Add candy

Open the egg and take out the rice cereal egg. Gently open the rice cereal egg and put candy
of your choice (Skittles, M&M’s, jellybeans, chocolates) inside the egg.

Step 10:

Close eg

Close the egg together.

Step 11:

Close gaps

Gently push down on both sides of the egg to close off any gaps in between.

Quick tip: Don’t make the rice cereal layer too thin or the egg won’t retain its shape. To retain the shape of the egg, make sure the layer is thick enough and firm enough.
