Recipe by Lalaloula
This recipe is quick and easy to make and perfect as a sweet Easter gift. You can make various shapes depending on the cookie cutters you use. I made one large duck from the entire recipe, but if you use smaller cookie cutters youll get a much greater yield. Have fun! I suggest packaging the hardened treats in cellophane baggies and tying them with decorative ribbon for a cute presentation. Note please: These need to chill for 1 1/2 hours.

Hi Loula, your idea is genial!
Now it's really not Easter. I saw this recipe between many others without photo and I found it a great idea.
Having only Christmas molds, I had to find a solution. For those I cut rings of plastic bottles and shaped to eggs with some adhesive tape.
I placed the greased mold on a silicon mat, placed some colorful "smarties" on the bottom, added 1 tablespoon of the crispies mix, two ribbon strips, some crispies mix and finally more smarties. I made 6 big pieces.
After about two hours they were ready to hand on the Eater three!
I allowed my children to try them, they will sure not last until next Easter! Too good!
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oil (for greasing the cookie cutters) or 1⁄4 teaspoon cooking spray (for greasing the cookie cutters)
- assorted cookie cutter
- 100 g dark chocolate (I used 70%)
- 60 g crispy brown rice cereal (unsweetened)
- mini chocolate candy (like M&M's for decoration if you like)
Directions See How It's Made
- Lightly grease the insides of the cookie cutters using either oil or cooking spray. Place them on a paper-lined baking sheet.
- Melt chocolate over a warm-water bath or in the microwave.
- Stir in brown rice crispies.
- Spread mixture into cookie cutters pressing down lightly. Decorate your treats with mini chocolate candies if desired.
- Allow to harden for 1 1/2 hours. I didnt need to put them into the fridge, but depending onto the climate/weather you might need to do that.
- Carefully remove the cookie cutters.
