Favorite Ingredients Friday (Easter Edition)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for Favorite Ingredients Friday Easter edition! Please share recipes of dishes/beverages that you might serve at a Easter Sunday meal. Or, share a special Easter treat that you might make for your children!

The recipe I'm about to share from you is one that I discovered at Kraft Foods. It's quick, simple, and a treat that your children will love! I'll be putting some of these in Snuggle Bug's Easter basket on Sunday.

Crispy Marshmallow Eggs

  1. 3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  2. 1 pkg. (10-1/2 oz.) miniature marshmallows
  3. Food coloring (I use pastel colors)
  4. 6 cups crisp rice cereal
  5. cellophane wrap & ribbon


  1. MELT butter in large saucepan on low heat. Add marshmallows; cook until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat. Stir in food coloring as desired.
  2. ADD cereal; mix well.
  3. SPRAY hands with cooking spray. Working quickly, shape cereal mixture into 18 oval shapes to resemble eggs. Cool completely. Wrap individually in cellophane and tie with a ribbon.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday Easter recipe! Remember, I won't be able to visit all of your recipes today until after I get home from work. But fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

When my boys were little, they loved the Marshmallow Rice Krispie Squares...I wish I would have thought to make them egg shaped at Easter time!! Such a wonderful idea!! Hmmmm...come to think of it, they'd probably still like to have these! hehe Happy Easter to you and your family and thank you for hosting this:-) xox

These are so cute! I never would have thought of doing that. They would make great treats for the kids to give their friends at school. My recipe is up as well.

What a clever idea! Rice Krispie treats are a favorite in our house. I spent a little time reading on your blog and am looking forward to trying out your deviled egg recipe this weekend too! They sound so yummy!

If I can find all the ingredients at my local Walgreen's I think I'm going to make these with The Boy today (this will make sense if you read my non-FIF post today :-)
