Crumble bars in bowl.Melt chips in microwave and combine with bars. Spoon onto waxed paper and form into 8 nests. Fill with candy decorations. We used gum balls for birdies with safe taffy cut outs for beaks.

* You can substitute Rice Krispie Treat mix for the NoNuttin bars.

Frost safe cupcakes and dip them in colored coconut or pearl sugar. Add jelly beans or bunnies. Top with a pipe cleaner for the basket handle.

  • Rice Krispie Treats
  • Egg Molds*
  • Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

Prepare your favorite Rice Krispie Treat mix. Allow to cool for a few minutes; then spoon mix into egg molds of any size and place in freezer to set.

Melt one bag of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips with one Tablespoon of vegetable oil. Release the “eggs” from their molds. Some will prefer the Rice Krispie eggs just like this. For the chocolate lovers, dip the “eggs” into the melted chocolate mix. Place on wire rack to set.

When completely cooled, wrap in cellophane and tie with ribbon! (See photo at the top of the newsletter.)

* You can use fancy Wilton molds but we used regular plastic eggs of all sizes for our molds!

  1. Oh my GOD!!! These chocolate rice krispy eggs look fabulous!! I can tell they’d be good for all the kids, allergy or not.

    By the way: My daughter’s allergic to dairy, so we use canola oil in place of butter, with a couple of drops of imitation butter flavoring. Its much cheaper than using butter substitutes but it works just as good.

  2. What rice krispies are gluten free?

  3. The best gluten-free rice crispy cereal, in my opinion, is Erewhon brand. Make sure to get the gluten-free version as they make a “regular” one too. Also, Barbara’s makes a rice crispy cereal that is good.
