  1. I’ve looked at all 3 and if this contest is really tying in with Easter, than I would go for the eggs. If it is really just about the rice crispies, than I would go with the ice cream sandwiches. More versatile for the time of the year.

  2. You have really got me craving rice krispie treats! I was going to make the egg dipper ones off of their website, but after seeing this recipe, I will be trying your recipe! They are the perfect combo of rice krispie treats and choc. pb eggs – two of my favorites!! Good job and good luck!

  3. I printed out the recipe to make these this week. After reading the recipe a little closer I have a question about the amount of butter/margarine to use in the recipe.I understand that I need 3T butter to make “1 batch Rice Krispies Treats”. Your ingredient list calls for another 4 T unsalted butter, but I’m not sure where to use it. The instructions for the peanut butter balls calls for “margarine” and then the chocolate coating calls for “butter”. Do I divide the 4 T butter between the peanut butter balls and the chocolate coating or is the ingredient list missing the margarine?

    1. I didn’t include the amount of butter needed for the Rice Krispies Treats since I just listed needing to make one batch. You actually need the butter for the peanut butter balls and the chocolate. I’ll take a closer look to figure out how much for each.

  4. Love Rice Krispies have for years. I am eager to try two of your recipies. The Easter baskets and the peanut butter Easter eggs. I would have to vote for the Peanut Butter Easter eggs they look heavenly!
