Rice Krispie Treat Easter Eggs with peepsThere is a sweet commercial on TV which features a mother & a daughter making Rice Krispies treats eggs together. Not only does watching this make me want to spend quality mommy & daughter time with my little girl, it makes me really want to make these eggs. This looked like such a cute idea, I had to try it, but nothing is quite as easy as it seems.


5 cups of Rice Krispies

1/4 cup of butter

40 large marshmallows

Food Coloring (optional)

Marshmallow peeps

Plastic Easter eggs


In a saucepan, melt butter on low heat.  Add marshmallow to melted butter. Cook until marshmallow is melted, stirring occasionally. Once marshmallow is melted & smooth, add the Rice Krispies slowly & stir until evenly coated. Add food coloring if colored eggs are desired. For a more speckled look add food coloring & toss, do not stir.

Clean & dry the plastic eggs & spray the insides with cooking spray. Wet your hands.  **This  is very important to do between eggs or your hands will stick to the mixture.**Press Krispies inside the eggs, press in the middle to create the hollow for the egg. Repeat this until you have used all of your mixture. Remove your formed treat from the egg. Use a knife if you have a difficult time removing any. Place a Peep inside of one half of your egg & place the other half on top. Cut the Peep on the bottom if it is too large.

These were a little more of a pain than I anticipated. Again be sure to wet your hands frequently. It is not easy to mold when hands are dry. It is a little time consuming & messy but it in the end it does make a cute Easter snack.

  1. I totally made something similar last year and even wrote up a whole post on Peeps related Easter treats, but I had my husband help me shape the base, which we labeled more of a bird’s nest, but love how you made these into eggs with the use of those plastic eggs and looked so much easier to shape then what we did. Thanks for sharing and may try this for the kids now instead of the bird’s nest base when I make them this year 🙂

  2. Nice to see an M who has her priorities straight! I’ve seen WAY too many mom’s trying to squeeze kale into St. Patrick’s Day today. It’s criminal.
    Thanks on behalf of the Toddlers,
