Have any fun plans this weekend for Easter? If you’ve got an Easter party to throw or a shingdig to attend, these festive Easter Rice Krispies Treat Cookies would be the perfect favor to make!
I have an ongoing partnership with Kellogg’s, where I share what I love about their cereals and other products. As a major fan of Rice Krispies Treats, it was only right that I make create some in an Easter fashion! Take an original favorite, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, and turn them into an Easter treat that people will love. Although these treats are sweet, the Rice Krispies in them are made with real rice and have a bunch of vitamins in them. With tasty cookie icing and small candies, these treats are fun to make, hand out to friends, and eat!
Easter Rice Krispies Treat Cookies
You will need:
For the Rice Krispies Treats
- 6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 1 – 10 oz. package of mini marshmallows
- 13 x 9 cookie sheet
- cookie icing, various colors
- small decorative candies
- wax paper
- rolling pin
- Easter cookie cutters
- clear plastic poly bags, to fit the size of your treats
These are really easy to make, I actually had half of this stuff in the pantry already. Here’s how to make em’:
1. To prepare the Rice Krispies Treats, melt the butter in a large sauce pan. Add the marshmallows and melt the mixture completely. When it’s finished, remove the pan from heat and slowly stir in the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies with a spatula, making sure they are all coated with the marshmallow mixture.
2. Transfer the marshmallow – Rice Krispies mixture into your cookie sheet, completely covering the surface and pressing it along the edges. Grab a piece of wax paper large enough to fit the cookie sheet and place it over the mixture. Take a rolling pin (technique from my girl Caryn) and roll it gently over the wax paper covered mixture until it’s nice and flat. Allow them to cool for 30 minutes.
3. Remove the wax paper, take your cookie cutters and cut away! Place cut outs onto the wax paper and decorate. Cover treats in an air tight container and let the cookie icing and decorations dry for at least an hour. Place your treats into poly bags and tie with ribbon. You’re done!
These were easy to make, and turned out pretty tasty! You could alternatively display them out on a platter as cookies, use them for decoration, then allow your Easter party guests to devour.
