Making Rice Bubble Eggs with Kids
One of the best things about these Rice Bubble Treat Eggs, apart from the fact that they are delicious, is that they are a no-bake treat, which means that kids can easily help make them. This is a fun and simple cooking activity that kids can do with a little bit of supervision, and it’s a great way to get them involved in the kitchen and working on their cooking skills.
Even little kids can help measure and mix ingredients and shape the mixture into eggs. Older kids can follow the steps and make the whole recipe themselves with a little supervision for melting the marshmallows and butter. And everyone will have fun dipping them in chocolate and decorating the eggs.
Tips for Making Rice Bubble Treat Eggs
This is a really easy recipe to follow, but here are a few tips to make it even easier!
- Melt the butter and marshmallows over a low heat, or with short bursts in the microwave, stirring in between each one, till the ingredients have just begun to melt. Over heating the mixture can give you hard, chewy rice bubble treats.
- To get coloured rice bubble eggs, add food colouring to the melted marshmallows and butter mixture and stir it through before you add the rice bubbles to get the best, even colour.
- You can add extra ‘mix-ins’ to the mixture before you shape it into eggs. Try adding sprinkles into the mixture, or chocolate chips.
- Allow the mixture to cool a little before shaping it into eggs so they stay together well.
- If you don’t want to shape the eggs by hand (that’s the fun part, but it can be messy and you might end up with wonky looking eggs) you can use large plastic eggs as molds. Line them with cling wrap to make it easy to get the eggs out. Fill both halves of the egg then take them out of the mold and press them together.
- After you have dipped the eggs into chocolate and added sprinkles you’ll want to pop them in the fridge until the chocolate hardens, then store them in an an airtight container in a cool place. Preferably not in the fridge (unless it is hot where you live) so they don’t get too hard.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 5 cups mini marshmallows (around 250gms)
- 6 cups rice bubbles ( rice krispies)
- food coloring (optional)
- 150gms melting chocolate
- Melt the butter and marshmallows in a saucepan over low heat, or melt in the microwave using short bursts, and stirring inbetween to make sure you don't over heat it.
- If you want to colour your eggs, add food colouring to the melted mixture and stir well.
- In a large bowl, add the rice bubbles, and when the marshmallow and butter mxture is ready, add it to the rice bubbles and mix well.
- With damp hands, scoop out some of the mixture and form into an egg shape. place your eggs on a tray lined with baking paper to set.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave using short bursts and stirring in between - stop when most of the chocolate has melted and stir well till all is melted.
- Dip the bottom of the rice bubble eggs into the melted chocolate and then into the sprinkles.
- Store in an airtight container in a cool place for up to three days.
