Cereal Treat Easter Eggs
These Cereal Treat Easter Eggs are made with marshmallows and fruity cereal. Shaped into Easter eggs they’re a fun holiday twist on a classic no-bake treat!
Seeing things through my children’s eyes is perhaps one of my favorite things about being a parent. I enjoy when my preschooler gets excited for the first snowflakes of the season or when my baby can barely contain his excitement over hearing music come from the radio.
Holidays are especially fun. Every year I find myself more and more willing to offer special crafts and treats for my family to help celebrate. That’s why I made these Easter eggs this year – they are not the most sophisticated thing to come out of my kitchen but they are bright and cheery and my son was literally jumping up and down with excitement while we were making them.
These were simple to make and you could easily change up the recipe to use any cereal your family likes. I used Fruity Pebbles because they were colorful. You basically mix up the ingredients and stuff them into plastic Easter eggs. I found that it was easiest to use eggs that split down the side vertically.
I placed the finished eggs to dry in a muffin tin. Keep these in an airtight container for up to 1 week. If you are going to be munching on them throughout the week and they get a bit too firm to bite into just put one in the microwave for 5-10 seconds before enjoying.
Cereal Treat Easter Eggs Recipe
- ¼ c butter
- 10 oz bag of marshmallows
- 5 c cereal, I used Fruity Pebbles
- In a large pan melt butter using medium heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir until melted.
- Pour in the cereal and mix to incorporate.
- Spray plastic eggs with cooking spray. I found it was easiest to use eggs that split vertically. You could just use 1 or 2 eggs for this process as the cereal does not take long to take the shape of the egg.
- Spoon the cereal mixture into each half of the egg then close egg to form shape. Pop cereal out after about 10 seconds.

Katrina- These are so cute 🙂 I’m definitely going to feature these on my “These Chicks Cooked” weekly features on Wednesday. I love your blog and I’m going to add you to my blog roll. Have a great night.
My kids (11 and 14) will LOVE this idea!!! So creative. I don’t buy fruity pebbles, though they frequently ask when we are at the store so this will be an extra special treat. Love it! The plastic egg idea is perfect.
That is just adorable, my son would love making these with me. Thanks for the idea, so creative!!
What a creative and healthy treat!
These are adorable. Wonderful for kids to create an easter treat. We JUST bought some at the store yesterday. We are all over these. Thanks 🙂
How creative! I love how colorful they are, perfect for easter!
These are so cute and perfect for Easter. I’m making these Wed. with my friend’s 3 yr old twin grandsons, who are whirlwinds. I’m guessing that I won’t get too many, pics. Wish me luck:)
What a cute idea! I would have loved to have gotten these as a kid during the holidays. Easter was always the most fun for me as a kid, I loved doing that Easter egg hunt throughout the house!
These would be really fun to share at my grandson’s school Easter party, kid friendly and so fun looking. Thanks for the idea, now I have to see about a colorful looking cereal that is peanut free.
So cute! Love the idea.
Oh yum! I would eat all of them. Which is totally what I need after eating way too many of the Easter Egg Hunt cookies. Delish!!!
They look great! 🙂
These are so cute. We saw the commercial where the kids were making the egg treats and my son said “I want to make those”. Glad I’m not the only parent who says “OK” at the drop of a hat. We made a huge sticky mess but it was a lot of fun.
Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous!!
Brilliant! What a super cool Easter treat! Well done 🙂
You are just amazing; Look at these colours! Love your tip about the microwave later in the week, although if I made these there would be none left a few days’ later!
You’re cracking me up with these kiddie treats. Fun idea 🙂
Love the simplicity and incredible cuteness of this dessert; what a wonderful idea! You know, this would be a fantastic entry for the Pimp My Easter Basket Challenge. ^_~ https://tinyurl.com/69g6c2f
Very cool idea 🙂 I’d rather do something like this than give my daughter a bunch of crappy chocolate again this year.
Almost too cute to eat. We haven’t had crispy rice treats in a long time.
