FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Do I have to decorate these?

No of course not. If you prefer not to add the white chocolate and fuss with additional decorating you can just add the sprinkles to the mixture with the mini eggs. About ¼ cup will add lots of sprinkles to your treats.

Can this recipe be cut in half?

Absolutely yes! You will not end up with many treats themselves, but you can make this is a 9×9-inch baking pan.

What is the best way to decorate these?

I just take a spoon and drizzle the white chocolate on top. Or you could also dip the side or bottom of the bunnies into the melted white chocolate then cover in sprinkles if you like!

How can I make these for Easter Baskets or gatherings?

Wrap them in cellophane bags with ribbon as an Easter treat for guests/kids. You could also pipe names in white chocolate on the treats and use them as edible place cards for Easter dinner!

Can I use other flavors of Rice Krispies?

Yes! If you want to switch up the flavor of these you can use Cocoa Krispies, Frosted Krispies, Cinnamon Spice and they even have a special one that is Peeps Marshmallow Krispies!

How do I store leftover Rice Krispies treats?

These can be stored in an airtight container where they will keep for up to 2 days. These can also be frozen. Wrap each treat in plastic wrap and then put in a freezer safe container. They will keep frozen for up to 3 months. To defrost: remove them to countertop allow them to come to room temperature.
