Rice Krispie Treat Eggs 

This was my first week on my own with the girls after all our family left. I was a bit scared at firs, but I think the transition has gone fairly well. Much better than I thought it would! I’ve been trying hard to make it a point to do something with Paisley every day so she doesn’t feel lost in the shuffle. On Tuesday we painted an Easter bunny cutout together, Wednesday she had a friend over to play, and today we made these Rice Krispie eggs. I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman (my idol)’s page and thought it seemed like a great activity to do with big sister. We had a lot of fun making them together and it was just something she got to do with mommy by herself. 

Ingredients: 

– 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal 

– one 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows 

– 4 tbsp. (1/2 stick) butter

– Hard shelled Cadbury chocolate eggs 

– assorted sprinkles 

– plastic Easter eggs 

Directions: 

Begin by melting your butter in a large stock pot. Once the butter is melted, add in the whole bag of marshmallows. Using a wooden spoon, continue to stir the mixture until the marshmallows are completely melted. Remove the pan from the stove (so the mixture doesn’t burn) and add in all the rice cereal. Stir until completely incorporated. 

Now, take your plastic Easter eggs and lightly spray them With nonstick  cooking spray. Fill the bottom of the egg with some of the marshmallow mixture and press into the egg. Place a chocolate egg in the center of the mixture and press firmly. I made a little well with my finger and then let Paisley put the egg in, it was easier for her than putting the egg in herself. Now, fill the other half of the egg with more of the marshmallow cereal mixture and close the egg firmly. When you open it up, you’ll have an adorable egg shaped Rice Krispie treat 🙂 

Place the treat eggs in an empty egg carton and decorate with the assorted sprinkles. You can roll the eggs in the sprinkles, but Paisley just decorated them right in the carton. 

Store in an airtight container and enjoy!
