EASTER EGG TREATS
3 T butter
1 (10oz) pkg mini marshmallows
6 C rice cereal
(I used EREWHON's Rice Twice organic cereal.)
1 1/2 C semi sweet or milk chocolate - chocolate chips
5 t shortening
multi colored sprinkles
plastic snap apart Easter eggs, washed and dried
non stick cooking spray
In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
Add cereal. Stir until well coated.
Coat insides of plastic snap apart Easter eggs with cooking spray. Spray your hands with cooking spray. Mold portions of cereal mixture into the Easter eggs until well shaped into an egg. Remove cereal mixture from plastic eggs and set aside to cool.
In a small saucepan, combine chocolate chips and shortening. Cook over low heat until melted, stirring constantly.
Dip bottoms of cereal eggs into chocolate.
Roll or sprinkle with multi colored sprinkles.
Place on wax paper lined baking sheet & refrigerate until chocolate is firm.
