Peanut Butter Krispie Easter Eggs

Thursday, March 29, 2018

I really love making holiday cooking fun for the kids, and these, Peanut Butter Krispie Easter Eggs are the perfect no bake treat! This recipe is from my childhood. I would guess it's over 50 years old and I don't want to admit it's that old! Peanut butter with rice krispie cereal,some chopped peanut butter cups, are just two of the ingredients in these cute little Easter eggs. They're all ready for Easter with festive sprinkles on top. The kids go crazy when I make this recipe, so they won't last long. They're more like a crunchy candy. No bake and done in minutes!

These have now become the favorite candy for all the holiday times.

Creative ideas



I usually can't wait until Easter to make these again.


These Peanut Butter Krispie Easter Eggs treats can be shaped any way you want.


I have made them at Christmas shaped into candy canes. You can also dip them in chocolate on just one side.


The kids use to get much more creative with molding them into shapes.


They stay together very well.


You can also change up the candy that is added to this and add white chocolate chips and any kind of chopped chocolate bars you prefer.

Now the grandchildren are big fans of peanut butter.


I have always love krispie treats and these are over the top delicious especially if you have a sweet tooth!

Memories with family and especially the kids are the best in the kitchen



This is totally kid friendly recipe after you have made the mixture, they can have a great time helping you in the kitchen.


They love to mold the shapes. My kids did when they were little.


I have a few more years to wait until the grand kids can help make them with me.

Kids Love Them!



The kids could hardly wait.


I don't think there is a better no bake easy recipe to start off teaching kids how to get excited in the kitchen about cooking.


I remember their excitement every year when my kids made these and how I was with my mom. Your family will all love these treats too.


It's easier to measure out all the ingredients first before you get started.


It's such an easy recipe however, you will have to move pretty quick while the mixture is still warm when adding come of the ingredients.


The mixture after it comes out of the microwave gets stiff quickly and you will want to add the chocolate chips while its still hot, so they will melt.
