Easter Egg Rice Krispy Treats

Rice Krispie Easter Eggs

4 Tbsp butter
1 10 oz bag marshmallows
6 C crispy rice cereal
3 colors of food coloring

Melt the butter on the stovetop.
Melt the marshmallows with the butter.
When the marshmallows are melted, have ready 3 bowls big enough for room to stir 2 C rice cereal in with 1/3 of the marshmallow cream. Also have the food coloring ready. Add 1/3 of the melted marshmallow to each bowl, add in desired amount of coloring and stir. Mix 2 C of rice cereal into each bowl until fully combined.

When the cereal and marshmallow is fully mixed and cool enough to handle, take about 1/3-cup of the mixture and stuff into a small to medium plastic easter egg for shape, remove and Set eggs aside to cool, not touching each other, on wax paper or a cookie sheet. (Tip: if your hands get to sticky, wet them slightly or rub small amount of crisco on hands while handling the mixture)
Serve these in an Easter basket or on a deviled egg plate!
Makes about 24 eggs
