Fun and Easy Spring Treats!

10:45:00 PM



So the Official Holiday season is over, obviously. But, I'm not going to lie... I think the spring and summer Holidays are my favorite. I especially love Easter and everything that comes with it. The weather here is usually right in the sweet spot before it gets unbearably hot. The spring clothes are adorable (for myself and the kids).

But, my absolute favorite thing is celebrating Easter with our Church. Every year we shut down our little section of North Blvd. and have a block party after the service with inflatables, pony rides and a huge Easter Egg hunt. Right in the heart of Downtown Baton Rouge.


So when, thinking about Easter and all of the festivities I wanted to come up with something new and cute to bring along as a treat for the kids! And what I came up with is just as fun to make with the kids as it is to eat.

This was actually inspired by some Valentine's day treats I made for Hudson's Class. For V Day, I made heart shaped crispy treats and drizzled pink colored white chocolate over them.

And since my kids have been begging to buy Easter eggs since the moment they hit the shelves, I thought what better way to put them to use early, than to use them as molds for their favorite treat!



CRISPY EASTER EGG TREATS WITH NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE®:
-Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a large sauce pan
-Add 4 cups of Mini Marshmallows
-Stir until melted
-Stir in five cups of rice cereal
-Continue stirring until the cereal is completely coated with marshmallow mixture

 

-Clean Easter Eggs with warm soapy water
-Grease inside of eggs with butter or cooking spray
-Spoon the mixture into eggs until they are completely filled and close the eggs.






-While the Rice/Marshmallow Treats are cooling:
-Microwave 1 cup of NestlĂ©® Toll House® Morsels 
-Stir until completely melted
-Add in food coloring of your choice
-Spoon chocolate into pastry bags 

-Gently remove treats from the plastic eggs and begin decorating with Chocolate.


OPTIONAL: If you want the eggs to be able to stand on their own you can either place some foil in the bottom of the plastic egg before filling it with the mixture. OR you can very gently flatten the bottom of the formed treat after you remove it from the plastic egg.

PRO TIP: Get your kids involved! My daughter probably loved making these even more than eating them. And that's saying a lot!
