Easter Fruity Rice Krispies Treats

Fruity Rice Krispies Treats @rachmccarthy7

Happy Tuesday, friends! I know I had mentioned that I was going to be sticking to healthier recipes here on ABM, but with Easter just around the corner, I couldn't help but share a cute sweet treat idea that is fun for not only kids, but adults too!

Easy Easter Dessert for Kids @rachmccarthy7

Growing up, Rice Krispie Treats were always a favorite of mine. Not only were they delicious to eat, but also something that I could help out with in the kitchen at a pretty young age. Originally, I was planning to use the plain crispy cereal, but then discovered the fruity version and thought it would be perfect for spring and the approaching Easter holiday. And instead of using just the traditional marshmallows, I also added lemon instant pudding powder to just enhance the fruity flavor. It gave it a super light and fresh taste! You can easily cut them into squares {like I did for the majority of them} or use cookie cutters depending on the holiday or occasion. A simple and fun recipe that will be easy for kids in the kitchen and even fun for adults! My mom and I made these a few weekends ago and had the best time decorating the shapes. It was like Christmas sugar cookies in the spring!

Easter Fruity Rice Krispies Treats
  • 6 cups fruity rice crisps cereal
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 10 ounce bag marshmallows
  • 5 tablespoons lemon instant pudding powder
Melt the butter and marshmallows in a saucepan over low heat until smooth. Add the pudding powder and stir until completely combined. Place the cereal in a large bowl and pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal, stiring quickly to make sure all the cereal is coated. Spread the cereal into a rimmed baking sheet. Allow to cool completely. Cut and decorate as desired. Store in an airtight container and enjoy!


Thanks for stopping by, friends! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
