Easy Rice Krispies Bars

You’ve got to try my easy Easter Bunny Ear Rice Krispies Bars! The best part… I made them from the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats snack packs so I didn’t even dirty a dish. {grin}

Easy Easter Bunny Treats

You’ll need:

  • Bunny cookie cutter
  • Coconut
  • Candy hearts
  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats Snack Bars
  • Icing (I use Pillsbury Cream Cheese Icing)
  • Wilton icing bottles (or resealable bag with an icing tip)
  • Lollipop sticks

Rice Krispies Bars

The easy steps for making your own Easter Bunny Ear Rice Krispies Bars:

  1. Starting with a cooking cutter, cut your rice krispies bar. Depending on the depth of your cutter, trim off the excess with a knife
  2. Insert lollipop sticks (don’t wait to do this or you could break your icing design once it dries).
  3. Spoon icing into two icing bottles. Set one aside and heat one for eight seconds (reheat as needed, but 8 seconds will take it to a smooth liquid)
  4. Outline the ears with one bottle and fill the ear shape with the other, pulling icing to the edges with a toothpick if needed. Toothpicks are also great to pop any bubbles if necessary.
  5. Add a heart for the nose and a few sprigs of coconut for the whiskers. Allow to dry.

I displayed my Easter Bunny Ear Rice Krispies Bars in mini dessert jars filled with pink sixlets. Hope you like them! I know my kiddos did! {wink}

baby bird nest cupcakes

birdnestcupcaketreeThis morning on Daytime Columbus with Gail Hogan I shared how to make these “oh so cute” baby bird nest cupcakes. These are perfect for a baby shower or any spring celebration, maybe an Easter brunch.

Here’s what you’ll need to embellish your cupcakes:

  • 1 can cream cheese or vanilla icing
  • Coconut
  • Robin egg candies or jelly beans
  • Ribbon, fabric pastel colors shown
  • Cupcake liners, pastel assortment from Wilton shown
  • Baking sheet
  • Three tier cake plates (8″, 10″ and 12″ stackable)
  • Small bird house (I got this one for a $1 at the craft store)

And here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Use egg whites only when preparing your batter so that it is ultra white. The lighter the batter the clearer the original color of your cupcake liners will be.
  2. Also, I suggest using apple sauce instead of oil so that they don’t become oily.
  3. Spread your coconut on a baking sheet and place it in the oven on 350 degrees for five to six minutes or until lightly toasted. You may want to toss your coconut before embellishing your cupcakes as the coconut in the center of the pan is likely to be lighter than the coconut on the outer edges.
  4. Cut 7-8″ sections of coordinating ribbon and wrap your cooled cupcakes.
  5. Ice each cupcake with a generous amount of icing, place three candies in the middle and then top with coconut.
  6. Shake off excess coconut and you’re ready to serve.birdnestcupcakeclose
