Rice Krispie Easter Baskets With HERSHEY'S Eggs & Jelly Beans - Must Have Mom

Easter is just around the corner and these Rice Krispies Easter Baskets are the perfect EASY treat to whip up for any special get together or as a fun activity with the kids. The end result is an adorable Easter basket filled with “grass” and “eggs”. They are pretty yummy too 🙂

how to dye coconut green

First you will need to dye your Easter grass which is just coconut dyed green. To dye coconut all you need to do is add a few drops of green food coloring to the coconut and stir it up. It won’t look like there is enough green coloring but it will get distributed evenly as you stir and a few drops is plenty.

Next make a batch of Rice Krispies Treats. I made mine in the microwave which makes it even quicker and easier for the kids to help with. Then mold them in a greased muffin tray, making a hollowed area in the middle to form your basket. I used two greased spoons to help form them and then used my hands for the finishing touches.

Then fill your baskets with your coconut “grass” and JOLLY RANCHER Jelly Beans.
