Rice Krispie Easter Eggs
Rice Krispie treats are the epitome of child-approved snacks, and we’ve got an Easter version for you to try. The only problem is these addictive goodies get gobbled up so fast, they rarely last more than a day.
For this recipe, you mix Easter colors in with the melted marshmallows, and then add the cereal. You have to use the stove, but once everything is mixed and cool enough for little hands, let your kids help.
With extra-clean hands, they can form the Easter eggs out of the Rice Krispie mix, and then arrange them by color. Alternatively, you can put the mixture on a cookie sheet, and let them use greased, egg-shaped cookie cutters.

When spring comes, it’s important to prepare for the arrival of the Easter Bunny! This delicious snack is the sure way to lure him—unless, of course, you eat it all first.
Once the popcorn is ready, have the kids add the M&M’s and pretzels, while you take care of warming up and adding the candy melts.
Mix it all and, then the kids can also add the final touch (sprinkles) before you let it harden on a baking sheet.
