Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats

These Rice Krispies Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats are a fun way to celebrate Easter!

I’m sitting here on my couch wondering how in the world did it get to be April already. It seems just like yesterday we were celebrating a new year and now, in just a few days, we will be celebrating Easter and eating yummy Easter egg treats!

Celebrate Easter in a fun way with these Rice Krispies Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats.

This Easter, I’ve partnered with Kellogg’s and they sent me some of the supplies to make Rice Krispies Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats! This was a fun project and one the whole family gladly participated in!

What makes these Easter egg treats special is that inside each and every Rice Krispies Egg, there are M&M’s waiting inside. So not only do you get to experience the delectable goodness of the Rice Krispies Eggs, you get a nice chocolately surprise inside, too.

Here’s a tip, y’all – To make this project go a little bit smoother, especially when making these Rice Krispies Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats with your children, I highly recommend food-safe gloves for keeping little hands clean. As I’m sure you already know, the melted marshmallow is incredibly sticky and for us, it’s just easier to throw away the gloves rather than constantly having to stop and wash hands. The gloves are powder free making them a good choice in food preparation. Make sure you have lots of non-stick cooking spray or butter on hand too! It’ll come in handy.

Enjoy these Easter Egg Treats this Easter. They're pretty easy to make and the surprise inside makes it all worth it.

This project took a while to complete and there was some trial and error along the way. Although this isn’t what I call an easy recipe, it is worth all the time and effort involved.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12
  • 3 tablespoons Butter or Margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular Marshmallows OR 4 cups of miniature Marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies Cereal
  • ½ cup M&M's Brand Chocolate Candies (plus some for snacking)
  • Canned frosting or decorating gel (optional)
  • 12 plastic snap-apart 3x2-inch Easter eggs
  1. Thoroughly clean Easter eggs then coat inside of plastic eggs with cooking spray. Set aside
  2. In large saucepan, melt butter or margarine over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  3. If your saucepan is large enough, add Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated. If your saucepan is not big enough, add Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal to a large bowl and pour marshmallow mixture on top, stirring until well coated.
  4. Using greased hands, firmly press ¼ cup of cereal mixture into each plastic egg half. Use fingers to make hollow center in each half. (TIP: Use a rounded tablespoon measuring spoon and press firmly in the center of each egg. This will make hollowing out the center much easier.) I used a mini muffin pan to hold the egg halves upright while I was finishing the whole batch.
  5. Once the eggs have set, remove from molds and place on wax paper.
  6. Place about six M&M's in each egg half. Gently press two halves of each egg together until they stick. You will have to have patience and keep pressing and molding around the seam.
  7. Let cool completely and decorate with frosting and M&M's, if desired. I used melted semi-sweet chocolate and sprinkles for ours.

I won’t lie and say there weren’t any times when I wanted to scream, ditch the project and go cry on my bed…but, the finished product and the family time was worth all the frustration. I’m sure most of my problems were caused from the 90 degree weather here in Texas, so hopefully, if you try this, you won’t have the trouble we did.

Enjoy these Easter Egg Treats this Easter. They're pretty easy to make and the surprise inside makes it all worth it.I think the Rice Krispies Hidden Surprise Easter Egg Treats look adorable just they way they are, but a little color and a little chocolate is always a good thing.

    I love this idea of Rice Krispie eggs! I think I would love to put a small trinket in them, not only candy. The older kids would love that.

  3. 3

    when I was a child, my parents used to have a beautiful easter basket on the dining room table for both me and my sister to wake up to the next morning. I used to look forward to it! After, we’d go to church and then out for Easter brunch. Now, my husband and I set up the annual Peanuts Easter paraphernalia, and usually get each other treats. Last year, my husband hid Easter eggs around the house..was fun!

  4. 4

    Oh wow! These are so cute! I just made rice krispy treats but never thought to shape them into eggs. I just may do so for an Easter party I’m attending! What fun!

    One of the best Easter traditions my family has is attending Mass on Sunday morning, then coming home for a nice breakfast and an Easter Egg hunt

    I saw this on TV, thought I would give it a try as a different treat for my boys on Easter. I’ve been working on it for hours and I’m frustrated beyond belief. First time the mistake was on my part, accidentally added too much butter. Second batch stuck together better but couldn’t get it to shape right in the egg shell…was so sticky it stuck to me no matter how well i greased my hands. Right now I have 10 solid rice krispie treat eggs instead of the hidden surprise ones i wanted. if anyone can give me some pointers I would LOVE it. I want to do this the right way, going to give it one more try tomorrow.

    This looks awesome and I am super impressed that you pushed through the frustration. I think I may have just sat and cried and eaten the entire batch of rice krispie treats LOL Your patience was well worth it though – they look amazing.

  17. 18

    Aww, those look so cute! Worth the effort for sure!

  18. 19

    This is such a cute idea! I love the twist on normal Rice Krispies.

  19. 20

    No, I have never tried to make those before-nor have I ever heard of them before. What could be bad–Rice Krispies treats and M&M’s!! Of course if you are saying that they may be slightly difficult to make-I surely would not attempt it–I’ll just make a batch of Rice Krispy treats and open a bag of M&M’s!!

    Very cute idea – I am always looking for a fun treat for the kids classes. These would be perfect!

    I have GOT to make these! I looove the m&ms inside the egg!

  48. 50

    Oh gosh. I have never seen rice krispie like these. How adorable. And thats a nice surprise inside!

  49. 51

    How adorable are these! I should make these for my youth group girls!

  50. 52

    You are more ambitious than I am. I would have just made them one big sheet and cut them up.

  51. 53

    How cute and fun for kids. My girls would love a treat like this.

  52. 54

    This is an adorable idea. My kids are grown up adults…but I have grandkids…they are getting older now too but they would probably love these…anything with M&M’s for sure! For those readers with problems making these a couple of hints: Make sure you melt the marshmallows on very low heat – this does take time but that way the sugar in the marshmallows does not make the Rice Krispies hard when they cool off – and I would melt Wilton Candy Melts and drizzle over the eggs vs the icing – the candy melts are chocolate in various colours – so you could drizzle a few different colours – and that would be very colourful – and it would ‘harden’ and be easier for young ones to handle. Just an idea. Also make sure you keep buttering your hands when working the Rice Krispies into the egg moulds. 🙂

    I just made these and am so happy with how they turned out. I had no trouble at all:) thanks for posting, my girls will LOVE them as do i!

  54. 56

    I just made these with my girls. We followed the recipe exactly and they came out great. We sprayed the eggs and our hands with non-stick spray and didn’t have any trouble. We overfilled each egg half a little bit, then squished the two halves together, still in the shells. Then just pulled the shells off. Perfect
