Easter Fruity Rice Krispies Treats

Fruity Rice Krispies Treats @rachmccarthy7

Happy Tuesday, friends! I know I had mentioned that I was going to be sticking to healthier recipes here on ABM, but with Easter just around the corner, I couldn’t help but share a cute sweet treat idea that is fun for not only kids, but adults too!

Easy Easter Dessert for Kids @rachmccarthy7

Growing up, Rice Krispie Treats were always a favorite of mine. Not only were they delicious to eat, but also something that I could help out with in the kitchen at a pretty young age. Originally, I was planning to use the plain crispy cereal, but then discovered the fruity version and thought it would be perfect for spring and the approaching Easter holiday. And instead of using just the traditional marshmallows, I also added lemon instant pudding powder to just enhance the fruity flavor. It gave it a super light and fresh taste! You can easily cut them into squares {like I did for the majority of them} or use cookie cutters depending on the holiday or occasion. A simple and fun recipe that will be easy for kids in the kitchen and even fun for adults! My mom and I made these a few weekends ago and had the best time decorating the shapes. It was like Christmas sugar cookies in the spring!

Easter Fruity Rice Krispies Treats
  • 6 cups fruity rice crisps cereal
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 10 ounce bag marshmallows
  • 5 tablespoons lemon instant pudding powder
Melt the butter and marshmallows in a saucepan over low heat until smooth. Add the pudding powder and stir until completely combined. Place the cereal in a large bowl and pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal, stiring quickly to make sure all the cereal is coated. Spread the cereal into a rimmed baking sheet. Allow to cool completely. Cut and decorate as desired. Store in an airtight container and enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by, friends! Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  1. So pretty!! Love the color combo and the flavors are like a party on the tastebuds I bet!! I'm going to make 2 batches and send them to my college boys, oh and a batch for me too, lol.

  2. These treats are way too cute and I can only imagine how much little ones would love them, how couldn't they!? These are the kinds of treats that I especially look forward to making with my daughter 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing this super cute (and I'm sure delish) Easter treat with us and I hope you have a great day, beauty!



  3. These sound delicious but I'm not sure if we have Fruit Rice Crisps in Canada. I'll have to check the next time I'm at the grocery store because my kids would love these! Thank you for joining the fun over at The Creative K Kids' Tasty Tuesday. I look forward to seeing what you share next week!
