Peanut Butter Rice Krispies

I can’t lie, I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it was genius!  Who would have thought to use plastic Easter eggs as molds for rice krispies?!?!  My world was rocked.

I threw these treats together while we were celebrating Easter with our family.  The kids had a blast decorating them and were proud to display them on the desert table.  Plus, they liked eating the sprinkles.  Anything with sugar is tops in their book…

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp light margarine
  • 4 Cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 Cup reduced fat peanut butter
  • 6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal

Instructions:

In a large saucepan, melt margarine over low heat

Add marshmallows and peanut butter.  Stir until completely melted.

Add the cereal and stir until coated.

Grease a 9×13 baking dish.  Press mixture into dish with a greased spatula.  Allow to cool.

If making ‘Easter Eggs’:

Wash the plastic eggs with soap and water.  Dry.  Spray the inside with cooking spray.

Fill each side of the egg with the rice krispie mixture so that it closes, but doesn’t crush the cereal.

Allow to cool for several minutes.  Remove from the molds and decorate.  Let the kids help!
