The plan was to surprise the kiddos with Rice Krispie Easter Eggs when they came home from school. I made them in the morning. This was way, way to early. Why? Because there they sat, taunting me, flashing their bright colors, filling up my kitchen with the smell of sweet, buttery goodness. Well, maybe if I sink my teeth into just one little egg, then that will satisfy me. A-hem… I might lost a bit of control and sampled a half dozen. These eggs are addicting!

    Great idea to add color. Last year i made Rice Krispie treats and Fruity Pebble treats. I didnt want to get my hands dirty so i used plastic eggs to shape the treats and hollow them so i could add candy inside. My nephew and little brother loved them!

  8. These are GREAT!!! The kids (age 5 and 8) had a blast making these and they turned out perfect. We used plastic eggs as molds (we buttered the inside….don’t know if it was necessary…but, worked for us) that was suggested in the comments. Thanks for sharing these.
