How to Make Bunny Rice Krispie Treats

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has completely melted stir in the mini marshmallows until melted through.
  2. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and salt. Add in the cereal and mini eggs and mix all ingredients until evenly combined.
  3. Butter a 9×13 baking dish and transfer the mixture to the pan. Press it down with a silicone spatula and smooth out the top to make it flat. Allow the mixture to set for 30 minutes.
  4. Butter a bunny-shaped cookie cutter and cut out the shapes from the cereal mixture. Place the cut treats on a tray or cookie sheet.
  5. To decorate: melt a few tablespoons of white chocolate or chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and once melted transfer to a piping bag or zip-top bag. Cut a tiny hole for a tip and pipe a zig zag pattern on the bunnies. (You can also just use a spoon to drizzle on the chocolate). While the chocolate is still warm add some sprinkles and allow to set.
  6. Once set you can enjoy the treats or package them up for gifting later.

Recipe Tips

  • You can incorporate sprinkles directly into the mixture instead of using them as toppings. About ¼ cup will add lots of sprinkles to your treats.
  • You can use a piping bag to drizzle the chocolate more precisely. You could also make chocolate dipped rice krispies and cover the whole treat. 
  • For a super colorful and vibrant treat, use Fruity Pebbles cereal.
  • Wrap them in cellophane bags with ribbon as an Easter treat for guests. You could also pipe names in white chocolate on the treats and use them as place cards for Easter dinner.

Can I Freeze Rice Krispies Treats?
