Simple Square Rice Krispies Treat Bunnies

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rice Krispies®. As always, all opinions are my own.

No need to get super fancy for these fun treats! Just a few simple additions to everyone's favorite Rice Krispies® Treats create a yummy addition to your Easter basket gifts!





When you're scrolling through Facebook, do you ever come across those videos of someone decorating cookies? There was one I had seen not too long ago that was so intricate. They meticulously created thin icing lines, criss-crossing them over the whole cookie, and then filled the tiny squares in with various colored icing. In the end, the sugar cookie looked just like an old embroidered handkerchief! It was absolutely beautiful.

I have a secret. I loathe those videos!

Sure they're addicting and satisfying to watch. Plus, they all auto-play as you scroll through and it's hard not to stop for a few minutes and watch. But do you know exactly how much time I have to decorate something like that? ZERO! Plus, my hands are definitely not that steady. Maybe when my kids are grown I'll take a cake/cookie decorating class. You know, when I'm not being asked a million questions all day long?!

I always get a tinge of guilt, though, because I really WANT to be able to make a cute treat for my kiddos. Especially around Easter time! I thought up these Simple Square Rice Krispies® Treat Bunnies with those parameters in mind: something easy to recreate, looks adorable, and tastes great. I'm happy to report, check - check - and check! 

Start with classic, prepared Rice Krispies® Treats cut into squares or rectangles.





Gather your bunny decorations: gummy bunny ears, candy eyes, jellybeans, icing tubes, and sugar Easter decorations. (I found all of these items in my local big box mart around the seasonal baking products. The candy eyes I found in the cake decorating aisle.) Melt some white chocolate as directed on packaging.





Go to town decorating! Get the kids involved in this step, they will have a lot of fun!





Once they have cooled and the chocolate has hardened, you can place them in cellophane bags with festive twine. It keeps them fresh and chewy, and it's such a pretty gift to give or Easter basket stuffer!
