Here’s a cute, easy idea I found on the Rice Krispies website for a nice Easter treat.

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

  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.
