Easter Rice Krispie Treats: Two Ways

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind around here lately, other than our normal Passover/Easter festivities.

If you’ve been following along, this is “the best week of our lives”, according to Scarlet. Of course no week lives up to its name necessarily, and I think I’ve cried twice already this week? And that’s probably twice more than I’ve cried in the last six months? It’s ok, though. It’s refreshing and I’ve been reaching out a bit more than I usually do. That’s even more refreshing.

It’s been stress building up, and it all has to have a place to go. That said, it’s been FUN here too.

Looking for a sweet treat for #Easter? Here are Easter Rice Krispie Treats, 2 WAYS! Whether it's bunnies or carrots, or both, I have you covered! Celebrate!

The big news is that we’ve got chicks! Eight so far, and a few more to come next week. They’re adorable and wiggly and often under a heat lamp, so I can never get a good picture. Cassidy picked up the first batch on Tuesday and we met him at home. He took yesterday off for his birthday and we went to the post office together while the kids were at school. It was quite an experience! We had to go to a special door/window after the post office called us and when we arrived, we could see our box shaking. We heard it chirping! I imagine that’s fun for the postal workers? I felt so.. proud to be holding that box.

And I held it as carefully as I held my newborn babies four and seven years ago.

In other news, the weather has finally felt like spring, we celebrated Cassidy’s birthday yesterday, and we’re preparing for our annual Easter traditions. Cassidy said he had a great birthday. We spent most of the sunny day alone together.

Scarlet decorated his awesome cake.

I’ll have one more Easter recipe to share, before Easter, and then it’s on to the next best thing. We have spring break for the next week, so expect fun and simple posts, and I really have no idea yet what I’ll talk about. During the days, I’ll most likely be on New England road trips, and maybe even a NJ one. Cassidy and I are also due to get away alone next weekend – maybe to Cape Cod. So I have no idea where the next week will take me, but I’ll be checking in. Everyone, have a great weekend!

And make these recipes! They totally rock!

And since you can’t put two recipe cards in one blog post (I’ve tried), here’s my second recipe written (typed) out:

White Chocolate Covered Easter Bunny Rice Krispies Treats

Ingredients Needed:

6 cups Rice Krispies
3 tablespoons butter
10 oz package of marshmallows
white melting chocolate
food coloring
black icing
bunny cookie cutter

Directions:

In a large saucepan melt butter over medium/low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove Saucepan from heat.

Add Rice Krispies cereal to your melted marshmallows. Stir until all cereal is coated evenly.

Press Rice Krispies mixture evenly onto a buttered cookie sheet or use wax paper. Allow to cool completely.

Remove your Rice Krispies treats and place on a flat surface. Cut bunny shapes out with a buttered cookie cutter. Continue until you have used all of your surface area. Eat the scraps. πŸ˜‰

Using a double boiler, melt your white chocolate on medium/low heat stirring constantly. You can add vegetable oil to thin your chocolate if needed. Add only a tablespoon of oil at a time.

Once your chocolate is a desired consistency, you can spoon chocolate onto your bunnies and spread evenly. You could also melt your chocolate thin enough to pour over the bunnies on a wire cooling rack. Use pastel food coloring to make fun colored bunnies!

Reserve a small amount of white chocolate and dye it light pink for your bunnies ears and nose. Spoon the chocolate into a piping bag or a ziploc bag with the tip cut off.

Use the black icing to give your bunnies a mouth and eyes.

Your bunnies are now ready to eat! Enjoy!
