Super Simple Easter Treat!
If you love rice Krispie treats, you are going to love this dessert recipe to make around the Easter holiday. It requires minimal supplies, and the children can help you as you go along. I know most kids love to help with whatever they can when it comes to baking. The recipe is similar to that of the regular Rice Krispie treats but with a slight twist adding m&ms to add just a little speck of the pretty pastels colors we love to see during the Easter holiday.
Easter is such a fun time filled with so many different things you can do together as a family aside from baking cookies and delicious treats. We love to dye easter eggs, organize an egg hunt, and bingo is yet another favorite to do with the kids to keep them entertained as spring approaches. I know in my household, the new activity is decorating cookies together in the shape of eggs or even crafts that are similar in style. Easter is such a fun time to celebrate before summer starts creeping up on all of us!
5 Cups of Rice Krispie Cereal
10 oz Bag of Marshmallows
3 Tbsp Butter
- In large saucepan melt butter over low heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

This recipe is relatively simple and is perfect for so many different things during the spring months. All the awesome parties get together, and so forth, this recipe can sure come in handy. Another big tip I use for my treats to use even more marshmallows then is called for in the recipe. It can add more gooey yumminess to the already delicious recipe if you are up for the excitement!
