Krispie Chocolate Egg Basket

I love Pinterest, although, I am not as addicted as some people I know (wink, wink). I do tend to spend a couple of hours a week on Pinterest but only on weekends. A couple of weeks ago, I saw some adorable nests made from Rice Krispies and decided that it would be a cute project for the little man.
Last year we made Rice Krispie Eater Eggs so this year we wanted to work with Chocolate Rice Krispies. By “we” I mean me….of course. I loved the way chocolate Rice Krispies turned out.
These baskets, were actually a bit of a fail and had to be re-worked. Originally they were actual baskets, I used Twizzlers as basket handles. I secured the handles with toothpicks, but they still kept falling off. Also, when I was taking pictures, I noticed that the bulky red Twizzler handles didn’t look good. So, I took them off and was much happier with the result.

Ingredients:

3 cups of Chocolate Rice Krispies
5 oz of Marshmallows
2 tbs butter

Jelly beans and other egg-shaped candy of choice

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, place butter and marshmallows. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Mix well. Heat for another 25 seconds or until completely melted.
2. Add the chocolate Rice Krispies cereal to the marshmallow mixture. Mix well.

3. Lightly grease a muffin pan.
4. Fill the muffin cups with the Rice Krispies mixture. Press the centers lightly to form a basket bed.

5. Cool completely and fill with candy.

Enjoy!
