Easter Rice Krispies Recipe

What goes better with Easter Candy & Rice Krispies?? MONEY!!!!!!!!!!  (Yes-there IS a GREAT giveaway!)

I have been picked for TEAM PHILLY with 3 other mom blog friends.  Our team is competing against 3 other teams in a nationwide Rice Krispies Treat Challenge.  This is the first of four we get to do this year.  HOW FUN, RIGHT?!?!?!

This first challenge them was 'Easter' and we had to create a tasty treat using Rice Krispies.  We went a step ahead and maid an ENTIRE display!  (Yes. We know. Total OVERACHIEVERS.)  And did I mention that we ACTUALLY made a BASKET out of Krispies?!?!  (Everything was donated to a local orphanage for kids to enjoy the holiday too. AND we had a visit from Philly's Fox 29! What a great day!)

What's in it for you? Well-a fab recipe AND A CHANCE TO WIN A $100 VISA GIFT CARD!!!!

(psst.  Rules to win are at the bottom of the post.  Be sure to read it.)

It turned out to be a totally awesome day!  Boston was in school but we had fun with a couple other cuties.  (I'm not sure how much these 2 little girls liked playing with cars, balls & batman toys!)

The night before-I thought since they were coming to my house-I'd try to 'make the basket'.  Um. You'll see in the video how that turned out. hahaha

The day of the event, Tara Bucci, Sarah Peppel & Zareen from CookingwithZ.com all came on over!

I barely have any kitchen pots/pans (totally embarassing) so they all brought one.

I knew I was at the right house when I saw the recycling bin full of Rice Krispies Cereal Boxes! Brave Joey had tried one display idea that just wasn't happening. We put our heads together and came up with this fun recipe!

Cocoa Butter Krispies Easter Egg TreatsIngredients:

4 Tbsp Butter
3 cups Marshmallow
3 cups Cocoa Rice Krispies
1 cup shredded coconut, sweetened*
1 cup butterscotch chips

Coating: pastel candy melts with speckles

Instructions: Melt Butter in large pot over Medium Heat. Mix in marshmallows and Cocoa Rice Krispies. Turn heat to low as you add coconut and butterscotch chips. Mold into egg shapes and set on tray.

Follow directions on the bag to microwave candy melts until liquid. Dip into melted chocolate, whole or halfway. Sprinkle with colorful sprinkles and pipe with icing as desired. Kids LOVE this!

*Coconut could be optional. I'm not a coconut fan-but I loved these!  The Butterscotch is what really rocks!
