Everyone loves the crispy goodness of Rice Krispie treats. Mold the treats into a basket, add Easter candy and you have created a fun addition to your Easter celebrations!
What do you need?
Fresh batch of Rice Krispie treats
Muffin Tin – you will be using it upside down!
Candy – lots of candy!
After mixing up a batch of Rice Krispie treats, cool slightly then mold the Rice Krispies around the underside of a greased muffin tin. I used a standard size muffin tin and a mini-muffin tin. The mini-muffin tin worked best. The baskets made with the standard muffin tin held up pretty well, but if not eaten quickly enough they will start to sag!
You will need to alternate holes on the muffin tin to have room for the bowls!
After the bowls set up, I removed them from the muffin tin and decorated them with melted chocolate and pastel sprinkles!
If using sprinkles, you will need to gently press the sprinkles into the Rice Krispies in order for them to stick!
I filled my eggs with an assortment of candy and to some of the bowls I added “grass”. The grass I made by slicing the green and blue Dot Candies that I had on hand. Any type of green jelly candy would work wonderfully. Just slice them into thin pieces, clump a few grass blades together and add them to your baskets!
This is an easy treat to send to college students, friends and family for a tasty Easter surprise!
