Let the little ones go wild and decorate with swirls, dots, stripes and designs.
- Rice Krispie® Treats (either homemade or store-bought)
- Royal icing
- Food coloring
- Additional squeezable icings (optional)
- Piping bag or squeeze bottle and different shaped decorating tips
- Egg shaped cookie cutter
- Cut Rice Krispie Treats into egg shapes with cookie cutter. If using store-bought treats, you may have to place two treats side-by-side depending on the size of your cookie cutter.
- Place a piece of parchment paper or wax paper over treats and gently and evenly press down to flatten top. Do not flatten completely. You are just trying to create a more even surface.
- Prepare royal icing. Separate into bowls and tint colors based on your preference.
- Using white royal icing in a piping bag, cover top of Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treat completely. Leave about a 1/4" edge around the outside. Use a toothpick to gently push the icing all the way to the edge. Placing the icing all they way to the edge from the bag may cause drips.
- Next, use different shades of royal icing (and different tips) to get creative with your Easter egg designs.
- Let dry overnight and store in an airtight container.
