How to make Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats
I was so excited to make these fun little Rice Krispie Treats. They’re so festive and perfect for Easter treats.
There are several ways to go about making Easter Egg rice Krispie Treats. I wanted to focus on decorated ones that can be customized. If you want to add another dimension you can pair these with Rice Krispie Nests.
These would also be fun to add to a dessert section at a party with these Peeps Rice Krispie Treats.
These Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats are bite sized, so smaller than a typical rice krispie treat. Which means you can eat a few 😉

Basically, you’re going to start with the original rice krispie treat recipe. So, you’ll melt your butter and marshmallows together. Either in the microwave or on the stove. Make sure not to over melt them or the marshmallows get too hard.
Next, you’ll stir in your Rice Krispies. Make sure that your mixture is mixed well.
You can now form your eggs. Since these are bite sized, we took a small spoonful to shape into each egg.
The mixture is pretty sticky, so you may want to put a smidge of butter or non stick spray in your hands to keep it a little easier to work with it.
Use your hands to shape the rice krispie treats into egg shapes. Then let them cool.
Finally, it’s time to decorate your eggs. Here is where you can be creative and really decorate them in any way you like.
For the ones I made, I used these fun pastel colored sprinkles of different shapes, and icing.
I took white gel icing and did a little thin cover on the top of several of the eggs. Then I sprinkled each of the different colored sprinkles on the eggs.
I also tried out a thicker pink icing with sprinkles. The icing was super delicious, but was a little heavy for the small egg. Next time, I will use a knife to thinly spread it.
You can also dip one end of the egg into melted chocolate (or spread icing there) and then dip into sprinkles for another decorating variation.
