Easy Easter Treats, Part 2, Rice Krispies Easter Bunnies

Posted by on 4/14/14
Its Monday once again and now Easter is even closer—but not to worry I have a really easy, yet super tasty treat that you can make for your friends and family for this special holiday (or even just for yourself, hehe). I went to Michaels and found that they have this really cute bunny shaped cookie cutter and it was only $0.99. I thought it would be perfect for creating Easter bunny themed treats.  The pink ribbon used for the bow is also from Michaels—you can find a wide variety of colors to choose from in their ribbon section.
What you’ll need:

Ingredients
3 tbsp. Butter
10oz. Marshmallows
6 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
Cooking spray
Neon food coloring (optional)

Tools
Rubber spatula
Large bowl
Medium sauce pan
Wax paper
Cookie cutter 
Step 1: First thing is you’ll want to take your cooking spray and spray every single tool you’re going to use because this recipe can get pretty sticky and messy. Apply cooking spray to your sauce pan, bowl, cake sheet pan (or whatever you use), the spatula, cookie cutter, etc.
Step 2: Put your sauce pan on the stove and turn on the heat to low, add the butter and let it melt. Once the butter has melted add all of the marshmallows and stir frequently until they’re completely melted. It’s going to smell so good at this point! Once it’s been melted you can take it off the heat, and add the food coloring—but adding the coloring is completely optional.
 Step 3: Simply add the sauce into the bowl that has been pre-sprayed and mix all of the ingredients together.
Step 4: Add it to your baking dish. I placed wax paper on the bottom of the pan; namely, because I didn’t want a sticky mess on that pan. Then I spread out the mixture, covered it with another piece of wax paper and flattened it with another baking dish to make it evenly flat. Once that has been done, simply set is aside for about 20-30 minutes so it can cool down.
Step 5: Once it’s cool, you can begin cutting out your shapes with the pre-sprayed bunny shaped cookie cutter. I’ve seen man recipes that place the rice krispies in the refrigerator first but if you plan on cutting them with a cookie cutter I’d recommend simply letting them cool at room temperate. Once they’ve been cut, then you can place them in the fridge—if you like. 
 Step 6: Add some cute ribbon and you’re finished! If you’re making them the night before simply place them into an air tight container and place them in the fridge. On the day you plan on serving them take them out of the fridge to let them return to room temperature. Tip: This recipe will only last up to a week in the fridge.

Aren't they adorable?! They tasted so amazing, too. I almost couldn't stop eating the left overs but I HAD to, hehe. I hope you give these bunnies a try Easter. You and all of your loved ones will definitely enjoy them!
