Easter #PinterestFail

The other day I was looking for a fun Easter treat to make and came across this adorable recipe involving rice krispies treat-shaped eggs with Easter M&Ms hidden inside. It looked really cute and simple enough, so I thought I would give it a try for my blog and also as a test for treats to serve on Easter Sunday. Well, it turns out they weren’t as easy as it looked and I definitely need to practice a few more times before Easter because it ended up being a #Pinterestfail.

The beginning started out smooth – I was confident and really excited to be able to put together these cute and delicious treats for the kiddos! That was all before I had to actually stuff the freshly made rice krispies treat into the plastic egg and then hollow out the center for the M&M’S “surprise”.

Again, it sounded so easy (like many Pinterest ideas do!); but after coating my hands with a ton of Pam and butter, then attempting to fill the plastic egg with rice krispies treats, I quickly learned that all I was actually doing is making a huge mess. I’m not going to lie, it was very difficult and I was getting pretty frustrated. After making about five of these rice krispies treat-shaped eggs with the M&M’S hidden inside, I gave up! I simply took the rest of the rice krispies treat, found a large egg mold and covered it with Pam, then shoved it in. To my surprise, that actually worked! So, I decorated it with M&M’S and TA-DA, an Easter egg rice krispies treat!
