Easter Rice Krispies Treats for Kids
For Rice Krispies Treats
3 TBSP Butter
10 oz bag of gluten-free marshmallows
6 Cups Rice Krispies
1 stick (1/2 cup) softened butter
3 Cups powdered sugar
1-2 TBSP milk
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
Food Coloring (optional)
1 sandwich bag (for easy piping)
1. In large saucepan melt 3 TBSP butter over low heat. Add Marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Stir in sprinkles (optional)
2. Add Rice Krispies. Stir until completely coated.
3. Using a buttered spatula, evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan, coated with cooking spray.
4. While the Rice Krispies are still warm, cut Rice Krispies slab into 12 squares.
5. With a spoon, make a small hole in the middle of each square.
6. Place a Marshmallow Peep (bunnies work best) into each hole. With fingers slowly close up each whole slightly pushing the Rice Krispies up against the Marshmallow Peeps to secure.
7. Next, for the frosting, combine powdered sugar and softened butter using an electric mixer in a large bowl.
8. Add 1.5 tsp vanilla and 1 TBSP milk
9. Gradually add additional milk, if needed, until you reach the desired consistency (for piping, it is recommended that frosting be a slightly thicker consistency than normal frosting. If frosting is too runny add more powdered sugar.)
10. Once prepared, add food coloring for “grass”.
11. Add frosting to the sandwich bag until the bag is about half full, cut a small hole in the bag at the tip.
12. After Rice Krispies are completely cooled and have stiffened, pipe frosting on-top by softly squeezing a small dollop of frosting onto the Rice Krispie and slowly pulling away. Do this until the entire Rice Krispie is covered.
Now your adorable Easter treats are ready to serve!
