Secret Surprise Rice Krispie Eggs

I really enjoy baking at Easter.  I also love something that is easy to make.  Rice Krispie cakes are one of my favourite treats.  So when I spotted some egg shapes in Poundland, I thought why not make my favourite treat into something more Eastery?! (I’m allowed to make words up..!) I then thought, why not make it even better by hiding a chocolate egg in the middle?!

So here we have it, a Secret Surprise Rice Krispie egg!  They’re a great treat to make this Easter holiday, or even just on a rainy day.  Considering the egg moulds are only £1 in Poundland (obviously!), it’s a nice and cheap make.

Instructions
  1. Melt the butter in a medium-large saucepan
  2. Once the butter is melted add the marshmallows (and toffees if using) and stir until they have melted (usually around 5-10 minutes)
  3. Once everything is fully melted into a smooth fluffy mixture add the Rice Krispies, I did it at around 50g a time to make sure they were all well coated.
  4. Get your egg moulds and grease them with either butter or a cooking spray.
  5. Spoon the Rice Krispie mixture into each side of the mould, pop the mini egg into the middle and then squeeze the mould closed, nice and firmly.
  6. Put in the fridge for around an hour to cool and harden.
  7. Gently pop each egg out, and voila!
  8. If you wanted to you could use candy melts or melted chocolate to dip them in or decorate.

They are so delicious and easy to make!

I could have just stopped here and eaten the mixture..!

Just stuff the eggs and leave to cool and set..

I know my decorating leaves plenty to be desired!  I thought I would give candy melts a go, but they don’t seem to go on easily at all.  I’m pretty pleased with these otherwise and they’re bloomin delicious! Oliver even approved (he managed to break into the tin and steal one!)

Have you made these before?  Any tips on getting candy melts to be a bit more pliable?!
