This is great! I shaped the eggs myself, tuck each egg securely on a skewer and completely dipped the rice crispy treat in chocolate. I also did little batches of white chocolate with different food colors, they came out looking like pastel colors which was great! I did one coat, let it harden, another coat let it harden, and one last coat to make sure it was not all bumpy from the rice, and to give it a good solid shell. Once they were coated I stuck the other end of the skewers in a foam plant base. I am ready to do these for easter!
I loved this idea but had a hard time melting the chocolate. I used milk chocolate chip morsels and im not sure if thats the right kind. I was disappointed because i LOVED the idea of this recipes. I dont want to down the recipe- i think it was just me.
Great treat for the kids! Instead of the chocolate chips I use the colored bags of chocolate you can get at craft stores. VERY easy to use and the chocolates come is any color you can dream of!
Made these with my girls yesterday and they loved to shape these.....after adding the marshmellow to the krispies.....you really must wait a little before shaping these....aside from the fact that the marshmallow is hot.....it is just too soft and sticky to form....so wait a few minutes....and seriously butter or spray your hands with cooking spray....makes it so easy to form these lil eggs. And these are super tasty too....what could be better than a rice krispie treat...one with chocolate...I used Nestle' semi-sweet morsels and used pastel colored non-peril sprinkles.....fun recipe for the kiddos! Thanks!
A little hard to mold and I used off brand marshmellows and off brand cereal. And was still good. Also make sure that you use MILK chocolate, not unsweetened chocolate chips.
I am always looking for new ideas for rice Krispie treats! My grown up husband loves them. This is a great idea.
A very nice idea. When I melted the chocolate I used a double boiler technique. One large saucepan with water near boiling then chocolate in a smaller saucepan over this so the bottom was in the water but not letting the water overflow into the chocolate. It'll melt perfectly you can leave it there or take it off and put it back at your leisure. I molded by hands and put a toothpick into each then let them cool. Then I dipped them. Also, I tend to use paraffin wax to temper my chocolate instead of shortening.
Kids and adults loved these!
