When I was living in Chicago back in 2010, I didn’t have anyone to spend Easter with. I wasn’t the only one alone for the holiday, a few of my other close friends were by themselves too. So we all decided to make our own Easter celebration. Together we made a pretty amazing dinner and then took a trip to the beach. It’s one of my fondest memories of my time in Chicago.
One of the desserts we made was Rice Krispy Treat Eggs. They were delicious. Now that I have a husband and a son, I want to make awesome memories with them. So what better way to create more memories than by taking something special from a past memory and putting a new twist on it. Today I’m going to show you how to make Rice Krispy Treat Messy Eggs.
Here’s what you’ll need:
10 Cups of Rice Krispy Treats
1/2 Cup or 1 Stick of Butter
6 Cups of Miniature Marshmallows
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Vanilla
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Bag of White Melts
Food Coloring (A Variety of Colors)
Lollipop Sticks (Optional)
Plastic Easter Eggs
In a large pot melt the butter on low heat. When the butter is melted, add 3 cups of marshmallows, the vanilla, and salt.
While waiting for the marshmallow mixture to reduce, pour the melts in a bowl. Then place it in the microwave for 30 second intervals until the melts are completely melted. Next stir, in the food coloring of your choice. Make as many different colors as you’d like. Then set aside.
Once the marshmallows mixture is smooth. Then stir in the remaining marshmallows until they are melted.
Then stir Rice Krispies into the melted marshmallow mixture. Set aside.
Take some butter or cooking spray and grease the inside of the plastic eggs.
Using a spoon or your hand fill both sides of the plastic egg with the Rice Krispy Treat mixture. Then close it to get the mold. Next, remove Rice Krispy Treat and place it on a baking pan. (Wax paper or Aluminum foil will save you on clean up) You may want to flatten the bottom out a little so it sits better on the pan or if you plan on placing it on a lollipop stick.
Once you have all of the eggs molded the real fun begins. Using a spoon drizzle your colored melts over the Rice Krispy Treats. Repeat this step using different colors, as much or as little as you want.Turn on some music and let the kiddos help out. (Tip: If your melts start to harden before you are finished place them in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds)
When that’s finished let them dry for a bit and then enjoy!!!
