M&M Filled Rice Crispy Easter Eggs

Have any of you seen the cute commercial with the mommy making rice crispy Easter eggs with her kids filled with M&Ms? Tony and I saw it together one night and we looked at each other and said, "Hey! What a great idea! We could do this with the kids!"

So we took a little bit of warm rice crispy mixture and lined some plastic Easter eggs with it. (Just a piece of advice from us professionals...use lots of butter on your hands. Lots.) Then we made a little indentation in the center of each egg half and filled it up with M&Ms and put the egg halves back together. We put them in a cup to hold the shape until the rice crispy mixture cooled. And voila! Darling. The kids had a blast and they were a delicious FHE treat.
Of course you could use smaller eggs, but why would you when you can use big, giant camouflage Easter eggs??

Yes - love the commercial and last year the commercial was just egg-shaped rice crispy treats...so I made those. When I saw the commercial with the m&m's, I thought - I'm so going to make them! Haven't done it yet, but maybe for Samantha's pre-school or for her b-day, which IS on Easter this year. Thanks for the butter tip! ;)

Glad to hear from a "real" mom (like that t.v. woman is that cute kid's mom, lol) that this worked, b/c we plan on doing it as part of our FHE tomorrow night...sans the m&m's b/c WalMart was OUT of Easter m&m's (except PB, which is my favorite, but a bit too big for this project!)
Thanks for sharing.
