We have a young friend coming for Easter dinner this Sunday.  I thought about making an Easter basket loaded with the usual chocolate bunnies and marshmallow peeps.  Then I was walking around the grocery store and what in the world do you think ended up in my basket?  This isn’t a trick question — it has happened before…. I do love flavored marshmallows!
Since my little friend will get plenty of chocolate sweets I decided to make some Rice Krispie eggs with jelly bean insides!  Truthfully, I never imagined how the flavor of strawberry marshmallow rice krispie and jelly beans would pop! but pop! they do! I filled a little plastic egg half full.
Then added the jelly beans into the middle.
Fill the other half and squish!
The fruity sweetness of the jelly beans melt a little into the rice krispie treat and the flavor is great!  I added a little colored frosting for fun.
I have this cute little bunny who watches over a variety of equally cute eggs and I just couldn’t resist plating a few of my krispie eggs.

It only takes a few minutes to stir up the krispies and just a little longer to make these darling treats!  Happy Easter!
