Thanks to the Kellogg Company for sharing the recipe and photo for Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats™.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: Makes 12
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- 6 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal
- 1/2 cup M&M'S Brand Chocolate Candies (for hidden inside the eggs)
- Canned frosting or decorating gel (optional)
- 12 plastic snap-apart 3 x 2-in Easter eggs
- Clean, then coat inside of plastic eggs with cooking spray. Set aside.
- In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
- Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.
- Using greased hands, firmly press 1/4 cup of the cereal mixture into each plastic egg half. Use fingers to make hollow center in each half. Remove from molds. Place on wax paper. Cool slightly.
- Place about 6 M&M'S® Brand Chocolate Candies in one half of each egg. Gently press two halves of each egg together until they stick. Cool completely.
- Decorate with frosting and additional M&M'S® Brand Chocolate Candies (if desired). Best if served the same day.
- Cool down: Let the Rice Krispies Treats cool for 10 minutes before molding them.
- Eggstra good idea: Pop the Rice Krispies Treats in the fridge for a few minutes to cool after shaping, which will allow them to set faster.
- Un-stick:Be sure to coat the inside of the plastic eggs with cooking spray, and spray a little on hands and spoons to keep the mixture from sticking.
- To dye for: Add food coloring in the marshmallow and butter mixture before you pour in the Rice Krispies cereal for a more festive look.
- Finishing Touch: Dip the finished eggs in chocolate for an extra-sweet layer of flavor. Use white chocolate for a truer-to-life look.
