Rice Krispie Easter Eggs
Remember my Valentines Day apothecary jar,
full of JUMBO ♥ shaped marshmallows?
Well, I used 40 of them, like the back of the Rice Krispie box says...20 PINK & 20 WHITE. BUT, since they are over sized marshmallows, I added an extra Tablespoon of butter & did 4 Tablespoons instead of just the 3 that the recipe calls for & 6 cups of Rice Krispie cereal to make
I sprayed the inside of a plastic egg with PAM & stuffed both sides with the warm gooey cereal & melted marshmallow mixture.
I could barely hang onto it, it was so slippery & then I could
barely get it open, as it stuck so tightly.
I got exactly ONE egg done & gave up!! Smooshed the rest of the mix into PAM coated non-stick pans. Love these Farberware pans for stuff like this!!
You just have to be careful not to scratch them when cutting.
I use my plastic lettuce knife so it doesn't scratch them.
That's my tip for today.
The Rice Krispie Treats taste good though...just a hint of strawberry to them, from the pink marshmallows.
Well, back to the drawing board...it was a cute idea but I didn't have the patience to do any more eggs. I had too much else to prepare for the Easter feast on Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by, though.
