Rice Krispies treats are so yummy, but I think they are a bit underrated. They don’t get as much air time as they should given how delish they are. Rice Krispies Treats are not something I make super frequently, but after I do I am always wondering why not. A great thing about Rice Krispies treats is that you can decorate them pretty easily or form them into a specific shape to make them seasonally or holiday appropriate.
With Easter right around the corner, Rice Krispies Easter Eggs seemed like a fun idea for a weekend with friends and a few little kiddos. These would make a great and unique Easter dessert- no matter the age of your guests. If you have kids that are at the right age, I think these would be very fun to decorate together too! Can’t wait to get to bake with Nicholas once he is older!
