We saw this great alternative to decorating traditional Easter eggs on television this morning. Make "eggs" out of Rice Krispie treats mix. This is a terrific idea for parents with younger children for whom egg shells may prove too delicate.
Just make Rice Krispie treats using the usual recipe. Then using buttered hands, shape about a 1/3 cup portion of the mixture into egg shapes. Set up a decorating station with colorful decorating gels, candies, sprinkles...really anything you can think up. The best part is no broken eggs (that can't be fixed) for Easter. Read the full recipe at the Rice Krispie website.
