Tips to Make Rice Krispie Easter Eggs
We learned through experience what to do when making the Rice Krispie Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats. These tips will help you keep this experience a tradition you’ll look forward to each year.
- Cooking Spray! Rice Krispie treat batter is sticky, very sticky! As you mold the eggs and press them in to the plastic egg shell be sure to spray your hands – BIG TIME – before each molding or else you’ll end up a sticky mess!
- Have materials ready! This is a standard craft and cooking tip, but when dealing with sticky materials, it’s much easier to grab the M&Ms out of a bowl than opening the bag and grabbing from inside.
- It’s okay if they fall apart! You are not Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart or June Cleaver. Your eggs aren’t going to be perfect. One egg may look more like a pancake, or fall apart after your 5 year old attempts to use frosting to ice it.
The most special part of making Rice Krispie Easter Eggs is the fun, tradition you are starting with your children. This year was our second year and that was one of the reasons it was even more enjoyable. Also, the taste great! 😉
