I absolutely love creating fun Easter treats. Brightly colored goodies make me a little weak in the knees. I remember making these treats in elementary school and filling them with jelly beans and I make them every year with my kids. They are so simple and yummy and the kids love them!
First melt butter and marshmallows in a pot over medium heat stirring constantly
Once everything is nice and melted, add food coloring and stir well
Next add rice krispies and stir again.
Remove from heat and wait for it to cool a bit before handling. Mold into an egg shape. I totally cheated and used a plastic egg as a mold, it worked brilliantly! Make sure to leave a small hole in each side to hide the jelly beans.
Fill with jelly beans and press together.
There you go! Easy peasy and so much fun for the kids to make!
