Rice Krispy Easter Eggs

Okay, so this post is attributed to my daughter, Leigh, and her friend, Ellen. She spent the night with Ellen a few weeks ago and made these awesome Rice Krispy Easter Eggs. They were googling a fun Easter project, and they found this great idea from Family Fun magazine. She called me and said, “Mom, you must come take a picture of this to post on your blog.” At first, I was like, “Huh?”  When I arrived at Ellen’s house, I realized how right Leigh was. These are adorable, fun and a great Easter treat idea for kids. As you notice from my picture, Ellen didn’t have any Easter colored M & M’s, but any colors will do. Happy Easter!

  1. What a great idea. I have an egg jell-o mold that I bet would work for shaping the eggs too! I think Ms. Leigh is going to take after her mom! Happy Easter!

  2. I wanted more color in the eggs but didn’t want to use food coloring because my grandson didn’t want the colors on his hands, so i mixed in some fruity pebbles. I worked like a charm and the eggs look really cute

  3. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!
