Crispy Rice Treat Eggs

Crispy Rice Treat EggsOur healthier {butter and marshmallow-free} version of rice crispy treats have been a huge hit in our house since we first created them a few months ago.  For Valentine’s Day we made a heart-shaped strawberry version, and I knew I wanted to come up with an Easter version too.  As it tends to, my mind went to getting more use out of the plastic eggs I still feel guilty about buying (even though we reuse them year after year, use them for sensory play, turn them into bath tub toys, and make fun popsicles with them).

IMG 7655While I had grand plans of creating a little hallow in the centres of the eggs and placing a couple of small treats in the middles, we ended up just making solid eggs.  To do so, all we did was fill up each side of the egg generously with warm crispy rice treat mix, packed them down a little, and shut the eggs while they were still warm.
