Cute and Tasty Flavored Rice Krispies Treats Eggs for Easter! {$100 AMEX Card Giveaway}

At long last, April! April is here!

This month is known for a variety of notable days (did you know that April 13th is Peach Cobbler Day, April 17th is Cheeseball Day and April 23rd is National Cherry Cheesecake Day?) with arguably the most popular being Easter on April 20th.

Along with the little suits and dresses to pick out, plastic eggs to fill and hide, and baskets that need to be stocked with goodies, it's time for spring baking! Easter always seems like the perfect holiday to signify the arrival of warmer weather and to break out the pastel sprinkles, egg shaped cutters and marshmallow animals. The number of Easter desserts out there are so fun and so...YUM!

One classic recipe that has been passed on for decades and decades in families everywhere are the easy and tasty Rice Krispies treats. The crunchy cereal mixed with the sweet marshmallows is a timeless combination that is enjoyed year-round, but what if it was given a bit of an upgrade in time for spring and Easter?

I'm always looking for an excuse to eat Kraft JET-PUFFED Marshmallows and have an especially soft spot for Kraft JET-PUFFED FunMallows in their orange, strawberry, lemon and lime flavors. So, with a little sorting and a little creativity, bring on the Easter happiness with Flavored Rice Krispies Treats Eggs!

Flavored Rice Krispie Eggs

Flavored Rice Krispies Treats Eggs (with an optional surprise inside!)

Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Yields: approximately 24 small eggs

Ingredients

4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz) Kraft JET-PUFFED FunMallows
6 cups rice cereal
Plastic Easter eggs (small for regular eggs and/or large for filled eggs)

Directions

Sort FunMallows into each of the four colors.

flavored marshmallows

In a small saucepan melt 1 Tbsp butter over low heat. Add one color FunMallows and stir until completely melted.

melting marshmallows

Remove from heat and add 1½ cups of rice crispy cereal. Stir until well-coated.

Coat the inside of your plastic Easter eggs with cooking spray, being sure to grease your hands at the same time.

Scoop and press the cereal mixture into each half of the plastic egg. For small eggs, fill until barely over-full and then snap each half together. Wait 5 seconds and remove from the molds, place on wax paper to cool.

Enjoy!

For large, filled eggs, use your fingers to form a small, hollow center in each half of your egg before removing from the molds and placing on wax paper to cool.

After large eggs have cooled slightly, place your choice of candy or chocolate into one half and gently press the two halves of the egg together, making sure to create a tight bond and cover the seam.

When your lucky recipient breaks into this colorful, tasty egg, they will find a sweet surprise waiting inside for them!

Whether filled with a surprise treat or not, I absolutely love the way that the flavors of the Kraft JET-PUFFED FunMallows come through in these eggs! Delicious!

With so many great Easter recipes, crafts, decor and more for spring, now I just have to decide what to try next!
