Ingredients
1/4 cup     margarine or butter
1 pkg     250 g (about 40) regular or 5 cups (1.25 ml) miniature marshmallows
6 cups     RICE KRISPIES cereal

    Multi-coloured sprinkles

  2. Add cereal.  Stir until well coated.
  3. Using 50 ml (1/4-cup) measuring cup coated with cooking spray, divide warm cereal mixture into 24 portions. U sing lightly greased hands, shape each portion into egg shapes.  Place on baking sheets lined with wax paper. Cool.
  4. In small saucepan, combine chocolate chip and shortening.  Cook over low heat until melted, stirring constantly.
  5. Dip bottoms of cereal eggs into chocolate.  Decorate with sprinkles.  Place back on wax paper and refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Individually wrap in plastic wrap.
  6. MICROWAVE METHOD: In microwave-safe bowl, heat margarine and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 through 5 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
