Easter Rice Krispie Treats

Easter has come and gone!  And as per usual in my household, it was filled with interesting but lovely times.

I was bogged down with so much work for school that I really didn't have time to get into a complicated dessert, but I still wanted to make something.

Then, right on cue, inspiration popped up on a food blog for these.

They were perfectly easy, and really helped set the mood for a low-key, fun day.

And you'll be pleased to know, I am now the proud owner of "Baking From My Home to Yours".  Believe me, all of our lives are better for this.

Just you wait and see what's in store.

But for now...

Go put your leftover Easter candy to use!

Easter Rice Krispie Treats
Servings: 15 treats

4 cups rice krispie cereal
2 cups fruity pebbles cereal
1/2 stick of butter (4 Tbsp)
1 (10 oz) bag of mini marshmallows
1 can vanilla icing
Easter candy for decorating

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat.  When butter has melted stir in marshmallows until they have melted too.  Remove from heat.  Stir in both cereals.  Press onto baking sheet to desired height.  Spread icing on top.  Decorate immediately with Easter candy, pressing slightly to adhere.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting.  Cut serve and enjoy!
