Cadbury Mini - Egg Rice Krispie Treats


Like millions of other people I, too, suffer from the addiction of Cadbury Mini Eggs. It doesn't get much better than that crispy, crunchy outside shell and the initially hard yet creamy milk chocolate center (although now they make a dark chocolate as well!). When Easter is over, it is so sad to think that it will be an entire year until the shelves are stocked with that pretty purple bag once again.

I have seen numerous recipes for Cadbury mini-egg cupcakes and cookies and I know that either of those would for sure be a crowd pleaser. I, however, opted for a Cadbury mini-egg rice krispy treat and let me tell you it is wonderful. So with Easter only one week from today, I think everyone should go ahead and make this treat before there are no more Cadbury eggs until next year!

You Will Need:
  • 1 10oz bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • 3 Tbsp margarine or butter
  • 1 10oz Package of mini marshmallows
  • 4 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies

Here We Go:
  • Grease an 8x8 square baking pan
  • Melt margarine or butter in large saucepan over low heat
  • Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted and remove from heat
  • Mix in rice krispies and stir until well coated
  • Stir in 1 cup of crushed Cadbury mini eggs
  • Spread mixture using a buttered spatula or waxed paper evenly into the greased baking pan
  • While mixture is still warm top with remaining Cabdury mini eggs
  • Cut into 2 inch squares once cooled

Makes 12 Treats
Happy Feasting!

I have a serious addiction to Cadbury mini-eggs and it's a little scary how fast I can get through a bag of these things!

I am a fellow cadbury mini egg addict. I could easily polish off a whole bag and then there would be none left for my rice crispy treats!

I am kind of ashamed to saw that I don't think I've ever had a mini Cadburry egg, nor do I think I've ever seen them. Sure, I know all about the original but maybe they don't sell the mini's in my area. I will have to further investigate this matter. They sound delicious and making crispy treats with them was a great idea!
