How to make Rice Krispie Easter Eggs

  • Melt the butter over low heat in a large saucepan. 
  • Add the marshmallows and vanilla and stir with a large spoon until melted and combined. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the Rice Krispies to the butter-marshmallow mixture and mix well to combine.
  • Butter the cookie cutter and your fingers, then place the cookie cutter on a square of parchment and fill it with an even layer of Rice Krispie treats.
  • Gently remove the cookie cutter, leaving behind the egg-shaped treats. 
  • Slide one of the sticks into the bottom and set it aside on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat until they’re all done and set them into the fridge for a quick-set, or leave them on the counter for a few hours to set up.
  • Before decorating, melt the white chocolate using a double boiler or microwave – see the instructions on the package.
  • Stir in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and mix until smooth. Divide the chocolate between small bowls and add a few drops of food color – 1 color per bowl – and mix.
  • Lightly frost the eggs with the chocolate, then press the sprinkles on top. Set aside to harden completely.
  • Enjoy!

Tips & substitutions

  • Try to work quickly, forming the eggs as quickly as possible so that the mixture doesn’t start to harden. If it does, you can warm it up in the microwave in 10-15 second bursts until it is barely warm enough to be workable.
  • You can use candy melts, too, instead of white chocolate, to frost the eggs.
  • No coconut oil? You can also use melted shortening.
  • Buttered fingers will keep the mixture from sticking to your fingers as you work with it.
  • For cute gift-giving, wrap each egg in a small plastic bag and tie it with a ribbon.

Serving suggestions

These adorable Easter Rice Krispie Treat eggs make a stunning addition to any Easter brunch or dessert buffet. I love decorating the table with them and placing them around the ham and side dishes. If you’re designing an Easter dessert board or buffet, be sure to include other tasty eats like Easter Egg Cookies, this amazing Sour Cream Banana Bread, and all your favorites.
