White Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Easter Eggs

I look at Easter not only from the standpoint of my faith, but as a holiday where food is a prominent focus. Every year, my family has a bountiful breakfast after the 8:30 Easter mass which usually includes a ham, eggs, pancakes, biscuits, bacon, and more. This year, I wanted to contribute some tasty recipes to the Easter holiday that everyone can enjoy. This recipe is relatively easy, is a good snack for after your Easter supper, and possesses the crunchiness, sweetness and chewiness that your taste buds so deeply desire.

Who wants a plain, old Rice Krispie treat anymore? There are so many ways to make them, let’s get a little creative.

For this recipe, I’ll be the first to admit that I failed miserably when I tried it the first time. I used Nestle white chocolate morsels and melted them in the microwave. They melted great but got blistering hot and would cause the Rice Krispies to fall apart when I dipped them. After this happened, I took a trip to Michael’s and bought some Wilton’s Candy Melts, which worked 100% better. They didn’t get as hot in the microwave, the texture was perfect and they harden so nicely over the Krispie treats.

White Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Easter Eggs

Ingredients

  • 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 3 tbs margarine
  • 1 package small marshmallows
  • 1 bag Wilton's white candy melts
  • Sprinkles (I used Pearlescent Sugar from Cake Mate's Cupcake Gems)

Instructions

  1. Add the margarine to a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. When the margarine is melted, begin adding marshmallows in batches. Stir between each batch.
  3. Meanwhile, place cereal in a large mixing bowl.
  4. When marshmallow mixture is completely melted and smooth, add to the cereal. Using a rubber spatula, gently combine the mixture so as to avoid crushing the cereal.
  5. Pour the mixture into a baking dish and press down with the spatula. Let cool for about 20-30 minutes.
  6. When the Krispies are cooled, using your hands, form handfuls of the cereal mixture into egg shapes and place on a baking pan lined with wax or parchment paper.
  7. To melt the candy, add to a microwave safe bowl and heat for one minute. Stir and place back in the microwave for thirty second intervals, stirring in between, until mixture is completely melted and smooth.
  8. Use a butter knife to paint the candy melt onto the top half of the eggs. You may try to cover the egg in its entirety, but I found that this caused the egg to fall apart and/or be unappealing.
  9. Add sprinkles to each egg after frosting them to ensure the candy does not harden.
