This colorful Easter treat is a fun family favorite! 
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 24

Ingredients
  

  • 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine
  • 1 package 10 oz., about 40 regular marshmallows
  • 4 cups of miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups of Rice Krispies
  • ½ cup of turquoise candy melts
  • candy sprinkles

Instructions
 

  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add cereal. Stir until well coated.  Microwave butter and marshmallows on HIGH for about 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes; stir until smooth.
  • Pour the mix into a 9 x 13 x 2 pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Put a sheet of parchment paper over the mixture (to keep from sticking) and roll it out until it is about ½ thick.
  • Use an egg-shaped cookie cutter to make egg shapes (periodically dip the cookie cutter in water to keep the marshmallows from sticking to it).
  • Lay the egg shapes on a cooling rack until they're firm enough to handle.
  • Heat the candy melts in the microwave in a small bowl. Dip one end of the eggs into it.
  • Return to the cooling rack momentarily, with a cookie sheet underneath to catch any drips.
  • Dip the treat ends into sprinkles and return to the cooling rack until they're firm.

Notes

  • For best results, use fresh marshmallows.
  • 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.
  • Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.
  • Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container.
  • To freeze, place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. -Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

    I have made rice crispy treats in the shape of Turkey legs. This my first time making in egg shape and I would suggest to melt the marshmallow and butter first then mix with a cereal. And for a better to get the rice crispy treats out the cookie cutter. Wet you hands so they are moist to get it out the cutter if stuck and better handling. 😁😉
