I used the regular rice krispie recipe:
6 c rice krispies (off brand is what we used)
1 bag of mini marshmallows (my bag was 10 oz)
4 Tbsp butter
Melt the butter then add the marshmallows, stirring until melted. Stir in the rice krispies.
From there, I took the pot of goo & put it in the middle of the table with spoons for all the kids to be able to work on this at the same time. The kids had already sprayed their plastic eggs with some non-stick cooking spray so they were ready to go.
We discovered quickly that adding a little crisco or cooking spray to their fingers helped the sticky rice krispies not to stick to their fingers so much.
You want to pack rice krispies into both sides of the egg. If you have any little bits of candy lying around, you could put a piece in the middle. We had been to an egg hunt this past weekend, so the kids had some candy sitting around to use. You could skip this step though.
Once you have both sides filled, push the egg together. You want enough inside that it makes it tough to close but you don't want too much where it won't close at all. The kids would snap the eggs shut, then they opened them back up.
This is what it looked like when they opened it back up. They slide out of the eggs effortlessly.
If you have any sprinkles to add, this is where you want to shake some on. We happen to have some that I got marked down last year after Easter. ;)
Tada! Susan displaying one of her finished eggs!
I think we got a good dozen and a half out of this. The kids had a lot of fun making these cute treats!
