Quick Easter Treats

Easter is coming and so are all the yummy treats! I usually bring a side dish to our little celebration, but this year my mom asked me to bring a dessert.  Now I will be honest, I am not a great baker BUT I do make some yummy Rice Krispie Treats. So I got my trusty recipe that was also on the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies box and got to work.  This recipe is so simple and takes no time at all to make. I used a simple cookie cutter for the egg shapes so I didn’t have to attempt to make ovals on my own (that probably would have been horrible). The best part, I got an cookie egg decorating kit and had my kiddos help in the decorating fun! They wanted to try one so bad, so of course I gave in and let them get a sample. Check out the recipe:

What you need: 


  • In a large saucepan melt the butter. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  • Add Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
  • Use a buttered spatula and evenly press the mixture into a 13 x 9in pan coated with cooking spray.
  • Use the cookie cutter to cut out your treats.
  • Decorate and enjoy!

These treats were super simple to make and my kiddos for sure approved of them! I can’t wait to make some more and let the kids really get into the decorating. They are really excited to eat their own designs.
