Rice Krispie Easter Egg Cakes


I just couldn't let Easter go by without making some 
fun treats, even if we weren't going to be having 
a big family dinner. 

I wanted to use things that I had in my pantry, 
and I wanted something quick and pretty, so 
I whipped up these super easy little mini cookie cakes 
made out of Rice Krispie treats.


What I am now asking myself is why haven't we always 
layered Rice Krispie Treats with frosting?  Nope, it 
definitely wasn't too much!  


I just made the standard Rice Krispie Recipe

6 C. Rice Krispies
3 T. butter
10 oz. marshmallows

and patted them in a buttered bun pan, making 
them thinner than I normally would.  Let 
them set up for a few minutes. 

Butter an egg shaped cookie cutter so the
marshmallow doesn't stick to the cutter.  

Layer two eggs with buttercream frosting 
and then top it with frosting.  Sprinkle 
spring colored sprinkles on top while 
the frosting is still soft.  

A full batch made 6 mini cakes.  

Buttercream Frosting

1 C. softened butter
3 C. powdered sugar
1-2 T. water
1 tsp. almond flavoring 
pinch salt

Place the butter, powdered sugar, flavoring and salt 
in mixer bowl and begin mixing with a paddle.  
Add water until the frosting is the consistency 
to be piped.  Scrape down sides of the bowl and 
let beat for a few minutes.  It will become 
creamy and white as it beats.  

We dropped some of these off to the 
grandkids.  They loved them too.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  3. My husband would go crazy over those! He eats buttercream icing by the spoonful, and when I make a cake for him, I make an extra bowl of the icing!
    Happy Easter!
