Krispie Treat Chicks

Introducing the cutest dessert you will ever see in your lifetime… Krispie Treat Chicks. These bite-sized marshmallow krispie treats are made with Cadbury eggs, mini M&Ms, and more! They’re the perfect snack for Easter!

I have a favorite hobby this time of year.

It’s called “Eat As Many Cadbury Eggs As Humanly Possible”.

Trust me it’s a thing.

I remember in high school, back when my metabolism appreciated excess amounts of junk food, hammering those things into my face until I was sick.

But as you get older, you grow to know your limits.  So instead of keg-standing Cadbury Eggs, I eat them in controlled excess… pacing yourself and all that.

And the perfect way to get your daily Cadbury Egg quota is slipping them into other unassuming treats.

Like Krispie Treats.  I mean, duh.

So today, I decided to get a little crafty while incorporating my 2 most favorite guilty pleasures…and made Krispie Treat Chicks…stuffed with a Mini Cadbury Egg.


These are totally simple and perfect for the season…

How to Make Krispie Treat Chick Desserts:

Just make a batch of Basic Rice Krispie Treats…but when your marshmallow is almost melted, tint it yellow, using some yellow food coloring.  I used a gel based color.

Then mix in your cereal, as you normally would…

Let that cool for just a few minutes, so it’s not quite so warm and get your Mini Cadbury Eggs ready…

Unwrap them, and try not to sneak any…

Grab about 1/4 cup of the Krispie mixture in your hands…you could spray you hands with cooking spray to help it not stick…just becareful not to use too much spray, because you will need to stick the eyes and the beak onto the krispie, and if you use too much they won’t stick.

Form a ball around one egg…

Place them on a wax paper or parchment lined baking sheet.

For the chick faces I used some fun chocolate covered sunflower seeds and Mini M&Ms.

I thought the seeds were the perfect shape for their little beaks…and the M&Ms for their eyes (you could also use mini chocolate chips).

Just press them into the krispie mixture.  Mine stuck with no problem, but if you used a lot of cooking spray on your hands to form the balls, you might have some trouble.

And that’s it!

I placed each into a white mini cupcake liner to look like an eggshell…


So simple, and you get 2 treats in one!
