They are made the same easy way - but they are so cute in egg shapes for Easter!

They are a bit more work - and you do get sticky hands - but they are well worth it!

Rice Krispies Eggs
from ricekrispies.com

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies®
Canned frosting or decorating gel (didn't use)
Assorted candies (didn't use)

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

Using 1/3-cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray divide warm cereal mixture into portions. Using buttered hands shape each portion into egg shape. Cool. Decorate with frosting and/or candies. Best if served the same day.

Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in single layer on wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
