I love Easter. I actually love Easter more than I love cooking, and that’s saying a lot… Because I REALLY love cooking. But before I get all sappy, I’ll move on to the recipe at hand; Rice Krispy Easter Eggs! Perfect for a Church Dinner or Easter Brunch.
INGREDIENTS (makes approximately 24 eggs):
8 tablespoons Butter
20 ounces Mini-Marshmallows
12 cups Rice Cereal
Small Plastic Easter Eggs
24 – 30 Jelly Beans
Assorted Sprinkles, for decoration
… and here is a bonus picture of Jelly Beans, because I forgot to put the Jelly Beans out in the original ingredients photo. Forgetful me.
Start by melting the 8 tablespoons of butter in a large pot over medium heat.
Then throw in the 20 ounces of mini-marshmallows…
…and begin staring them around as they melt.
Continue stirring until the marshmallows are completely melted, creamy, and beautiful.
Remove the pot from the heat and pour in the 12 cups of rice cereal.
Stir the rice cereal into the melted marshmallow, and continue stirring until you’ve reached gooey glory.
If the plastic egg halves are connected, cut the little piece of plastic that connects them.
Spray the inside of both halves of the plastic egg with cooking spray — this will keep the cereal/marshmallow mixture from sticking to the inside of the egg molds. Fill the bottom half of the egg mold with a small amount of cereal…
Then add a jelly bean to the center — this will act as an “egg yolk”. Fun, right?
Now, fill the top half of egg with cereal…
… and press the top and bottom together. If you’ve filled the eggs appropriately you should meet a little resistance when you put the halves together… push the halves completely together, until you hear a little crunch.
Then remove the egg mold…
… and set that egg aside while you repeat that exact process with the other eggs.
EGGcellent Note: Spray the inside of the egg mold each time.
Then, decorate the eggs… I decorated this egg with tiny Easter egg sprinkles. Eggs on eggs.
Dots and stars…
Place the eggs in an egg crate, or a deviled egg serving tray…
… and proudly display them on your Easter Brunch dessert table. Fun, adorable, easy… and yummy…

John 3:16-18 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
John 20:29-31 – Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded [in the Gospel of John]. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
