Krispy Easter Eggs

Krispy Easter Eggs

Cooking & Baking

Imagine the Easter Bunny laying an egg. Wait.

Fun, easy Easter treats. Make a little hollow in the center and fill with smaller candies, or just fill with one larger piece. Decorate the outside with different colors of sprinkles.

YIELDS: 12 servings
PREP TIME: 0 hours 20 mins
COOK TIME: 0 hours 5 mins
TOTAL TIME: 0 hours 25 mins
  • 4 tbsp. Butter
  • 1 package (10 Ounces) Mini Marshmallows
  • 6 c. Rice Krispies
  • Assorted Sprinkles
  • Small Chocolate Easter Eggs
  • Plastic Easter Eggs


In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat, then add rice cereal and stir until well coated.

Lightly spray interior of the plastic eggs with non-stick cooking spray. If mixture is too sticky, you can also spray your hands. Fill both sides of the plastic egg with rice cereal mixture, slightly over-filling one side. Press chocolate egg in the center on one side of the egg, then close the plastic egg to shape it. (It should be full enough to meet with a little resistance as you close it.) Gently release the rice cereal egg from the mold, decorate with your choice of sprinkles and set aside in egg crate until set.

Add the butter to a pot or large saucepan and melt it over medium heat.

And stir it until the marshmallows are melty and sinful.

And stir it around gently until it’s all sticky and gooey and combined.

Next, lightly spray the inside of a plastic Easter egg with cooking spray.

You know. Those plastic Easter eggs? The ones you think are taking over your house one minute, then the next minute, when you actually need them to photograph a recipe, you can’t find one to save your life so you drive over to your sister-in-law’s house and borrow hers?

Yes, those plastic Easter eggs.

Stuff one half with the Rice Krispie mixture, then press a chocolate egg into the center. (The official Rice Krispie recipe calls for hollowing out a well and placing small candies in the center, but my motto is “Go Big Chocolate Easter Egg or Go Home.”)

Fill the other half of the egg with more cereal mixture, then press the two halves together until they’re totally closed. The egg should be full enough to meet with a little resistance as you close the egg, but not so full that you feel like you’re crushing the life out of the cereal.

A few seconds later, gently pull the egg out of…well, the egg! I found that the longer you let them sit in the plastic eggs, the harder it was to get out.

Sprinkle them with different springy colors of sprinkles, and place them in an egg holder to let them set.

Let the kids do this part!

Just have a broom nearby.
