You will need to make Rice Krispie treats in 4 different batches for the 4 different color of Easter eggs.

Mixing bowl with melted butter and marshmallows.

Step 1. First, melt the butter in the microwave using a large microwave safe bowl.  Add marshmallows and stir until well combined. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval until completely melted.

Mixing bowl with pink food coloring added to mixture.

Step 2. Add a few drops of pink food coloring to the melted marshmallow mixture. Stir until well combined.

Cereal added to mixture and combined.

Step 3. Stir in the Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Continue the same process 3 more times with the purple, yellow and blue food coloring.

Mixture shaped into eggs.

Step 4. Allow the cereal mixture to cool slightly. Now it’s time to make the Easter eggs. Grab a handful of the melted marshmallow mixture and use your hands to form the Easter eggs. I think it helps to spray your hands with cooking spray.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I put Rice Krispie treats in the fridge?

Do not place it in the refrigerator as it will make the Rice Krispie Treats too hard and no longer gooey (gooey is the best part).  

How to Store Rice Krispie Easter Egg Treats?

We recommend storing rice krispies at room temperature in an airtight container. They will last about 4 days is stored properly. Place parchment paper in between the layers.

Pro Tips

  • Storing – If you store the rice krispie treats in a container , they will last about 3-4 days.
  • Cooking – Make sure to cook this over low heat. Increasing the heat will result in hard or tough treats that will not be soft like desired.
  • Keep at room temperature – Do not store in the refrigerator.  They are best left to cool at room temperature so that the remain gooey and delicious! 
  • Shaping into Eggs – If you have trouble shaping the eggs, try using plastic eggs.
