In my house, we are kind of addicted to treats that feature Rice Krispies. These Rice Krispies Easter Baskets have a little bit of everything. Marshmallows, chocolate, candies and more! These are perfect to celebrate Easter with and can also be filled differently to celebrate any other occasion.
Rice Krispies Baskets Ingredients
3 Tbsp butter
4 cups of mini marshmallows
6 cups of rice krispies
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add Rice Krispies. Stir until well coated.
3. Coat muffin tray in butter to prevent the baskets from sticking. Pack rice krispies into the muffin trays. once the rice krispies are packed in pull them out and cut out the middle. I used my hands to smooth out the center.
I used a chocolate filling underneath the eggs because this filling is delicious with rice krispies!
1 cup of chocolate chips.
2 tbsp of peanut butter
1. Melt ingredients together in a double boiler. pour a little into the baskets.
After I put the chocolate in the baskets, I put the eggs in before the chocolate hardened.
I went to Bulk barn and picked out different types of eggs such as M&M easter eggs, Chocolate covered almond eggs and the usual Cadbury easter eggs.
For decoration I dipped the bottoms into melted colored chocolate I used Icing with a decoration bag, and a decorating tip to decorate around the top of the basket. I used Wilton tip 233 but your favorite tip will do.
