Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats™

Give these Easter egg-shaped goodies a shake to hear the tasty surprise inside - M&M'S® candies!

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine (diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended)
  • # 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
  • 1/2 cup M&M'S® Easter colored chocolate candies
  • Canned frosting or decorating gel (optional)
  • 12 plastic snap-apart 3 x 2-in Easter eggs

Instructions

  1. Clean, then coat inside of plastic eggs with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Add Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal. Stir until well coated.
  4. Using greased hands, firmly press 1/4 cup of Rice Krispies® mixture into both halves of each plastic egg. Use fingers to make hollow center in each half. Remove from molds. Place on wax paper. Cool slightly.
  5. Place about 6 M&M'S® Brand Chocolate Candies in one half of each egg. Gently press two halves of each egg together until they stick. Cool completely.
  6. Decorate with frosting and additional M&M'S® Brand Chocolate Candies (if desired). Best if served the same day.

Tips:

For best results, use fresh marshmallows. 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.
