Rice Krispies {candy filled} Eggs



Happy Easter weekend y'all.  Its a Good Friday indeed, thanks to a 3 day weekend that is much needed.  And I just want to quickly share with you the quickest treat for Sunday.  

I first saw these candy-filled eggs in TV commercials last year, and this past weekend The Pioneer Woman shared a version on her show.  And I knew I just had to make them this year, not to mention how easy they were.  




I simply used my mom's recipe for rice krispies --below --  (including Country Crock butter sent to me to review from Influenster) and added Thomas' candy of choice to fill the eggs.

They turned out amazing.  I mean seriously, they're delicious, buttery, melt in your mouth crazy good.  





INGREDIENTS:
4 tbsp of Country Crock Butter
5 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1 bag of milk chocolate M&Ms
Plastic Eggs
Nonstick Spray

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. On low heat, melt the butter and bag of marshmallows.  
2. Stir continuously. (do not let this mixture sit or it will burn)
3. Once mixture is melted, take off the heat and add in the rice krispies cereal one cup at a time.
4. Stir until thoroughly mixed through.
5. Spray plastic eggs with nonstick spray.  
6. Fill each half of the egg, and add your candy in one half.
7. Close the eggs tightly, and let set for at least 10 minutes.  Enjoy.




Influenster sent me a coupon for Country Crock butter, and y'all these are some buttery rice krispies treats. 
I'm honestly not sure you can go wrong with butter...ever...but I love how these treats turned out.






I'll be making these again later today for when family comes to visit this afternoon.  And I'm so so excited for all our plans this weekend.  My parents and nephews are coming to visit, and we'll be with Thomas' family as well.  I'm talking egg hunts, dying eggs, the steeple chase, bonfires and lots of food (deviled eggs, buffalo chicken dip and french onion dip are all in the plans).

What's your favorite Easter treat?  What are your plans for this 3 day weekend?
