I found this on the Rice Krispies webpage. I haven't made them yet, but plan to at Easter. Looks like a fun activity for kids.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups kellogg's crisp rice cereal
  • 12 cup M&M's plain chocolate candy, Easter colored
  • frosting (optional) or decorating gel (optional)
  • plastic snap-apart easter egg, 12 (3 x 2-in)

  1. Clean, then coat inside of plastic eggs with cooking spray. Set aside.

  3. Add Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal. Stir until well coated.
  4. Using greased hands, firmly press 1/4 cup of Rice Krispies® mixture into both halves of each plastic egg. Use fingers to make hollow center in each half. Remove from molds. Place on wax paper. Cool slightly.
  5. 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.
