Easter brings the best kind of candy…namely Cadbury chocolate eggs. These little morsels have a wonderful candy coating and melty chocolate filling. With a rather embarrassing supply on hand, I decided I needed to do something with them, other than throw them straight down my gullet. Enter: Cadbury egg krispie treats.

Unlike the traditional krispie treats, these babies don’t require you to use the stove and melt marshmellows – so no huge clean-up. Instead, sub the marshmallow binding with a combo of peanut butter and melted white chocolate. Throw in the krispies, cadbury eggs, and some mini marshmallows, mush them into a pan – and you’re good to go. I plan on doing some variations of this treat over the summer – especially for our legendary cabin weekends. Throwing in some m&ms and pretzels – yup, that’s my next move.

Anywho, here’s what they look like at the end.

Oh and I totally ripped this recipe off from Peanut Buttered http://www.peanutbuttered.com/2014/04/15/mini-eggs-peanut-butter-rice-krispie-treats-videojug/

Here’s their recipe:
  • 3 cups rice krispies
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 1/12 cups cadbury mini eggs
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter

Melt white chocolate in microwave. Add peanut butter. Stir until well mixed. Mix the rest of the ingredients together, press into 9 x 11 pan. Try not to shovel the entire tray at once.
