I love how easy Rice Krispy Treats are to make. Not only because they are no-bake dessert but how quick they are to whip up for last minute sweet cravings or even as a fun activity to be in the kitchen with the kids! Add pastel colored candies and these Rice Krispy Treats are ready for the Easter Bunny! Or just a couple of hungry mouths to feed.

If you're anything like me, you might be doing some last minute Easter prep and need a quick and easy dessert- STAT! This year is going to be extra cozy due to the health crisis- another week at home, another week with our own little families. I bet you're feeling like you need a break or more activities for the kids? These Easter Rice Krispies hit all the cords!
They did not last long in our house and I felt like I could escape to the ocean breeze in Hawaii, if only for a sweet sweet second.
Hawaii because that is where I'm dreaming of going on vacation. In fact, we were supposed to be there this weekend (Easter) but had to cancel due to Covid-19 and its so disappointing!
So instead, we have been baking up a storm the last couple of weeks and will have some new recipes coming your way soon! Like Better than Boxed Chocolate Cake (with ingredients you already have at home). Are you excited? I'm EXCITED!
A quick announcement- we hosted our very first FREE Bake Along on Instagram Live last weekend and I had the best time! We drank spicy margaritas and made our highly requested Carrot Cake! Didn't snag the recipe? There is still time!
And Join us on IG live Saturday, April 11th at 11am PT as we demo how to frost and fill your cake just in time for Easter Sunday!
