  • 16 oz marshmallows mini or regular size work
  • 7 cups Rice Krispies
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Easter Egg Candies

Buttercream Frosting


  • Grease cupcake pans and set aside.
  • Melt marshmallows and butter in a microwave safe bowl (I cooked mine for about 2 minutes but kept a close eye and made sure they weren't puffing up too much and falling out of the bowl.)
  • Stir together until well blended and pour in Rice Krispies. Stir until well combined.
  • Spoon into greased cupcake pan and press down with wax paper.
  • Let set for a half hour.


  • Combine butter, milk, vanilla and 2 cups of your powdered sugar in a large bowl. Mix till smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Then add the remaining powdered sugar and food coloring of your choice.
  • Pipe your frosting into your cookie cups and top with Easter egg candies. ENJOY!
