Mini Egg Rice Crispy Squares

My Mini Egg Rice Crispy Squares are the essential Easter treat for any chocolate fanatic. So easy and incredibly tasty but do not blame me when you can’t stop yourself from eating more than one!

At a quick glance you may think this is a rocky road recipe, but you would be mistaken! 

As a child for me and I’m sure a lot of other people, Easter meant making rice crispy cakes. Referring to them as cakes was a little generous because I made them by literally mixing rice crispies and melted chocolate and spooning this into a cupcake case to set. Highly skilled stuff I’m sure you’ll agree. 

Regardless of how simple they are, they are rather tasty! I made 100 rice crispy cakes for my brother in law’s 21st birthday when I was at uni. My housemates thought I was very strange but the hardest part was asking them not to eat any after I’d filled our fridges with them!

These rice crispy cakes were the inspiration for my Mini Egg Rice Crispy Squares. They are incredibly easy to make which means they are perfect for children to help with. I’ve chosen to decorate these with Mini Eggs, but you could also cut up some Creme Eggs to place on top. 

Even though this recipe is so simple, people really love it. I took them into work and most people couldn’t stop at just eating one and went back for multiple squares! So be prepared when you make these Mini Egg Rice Crispy Squares that they might not last very long and you may want to consider making a double batch!

How long will these keep?

These keep in the fridge for up to a week to they are great to make in advance. If you do keep them out of the fridge they just become a bit more crumbly which makes them a bit messier to eat. You could also cut the squares a bit smaller if you wanted to not completely spoil your children! 

Mr Curly and I give up chocolate for lent each year. This isn’t for religious reasons but it’s quite good to test our will power! I usually don’t bake with chocolate during lent to reduce temptation. This year I bit the bullet and got the chocolate out!

Mr Curly did have to leave the kitchen when I said I was going to make these Mini Egg Rice Crispy Squares. Because of that I made them quite quickly which explains the lack of photos!

    Rice crispie cakes always make me think of my Grandma – she often made them for us! They’re just so yummy! And even better with mini eggs in – I’m loving all of the mini egg recipes that are about at the moment!

    I am so impressed that you gave up chocolate for Lent and even more so that you made these and managed to resist. I know I couldn’t do it. Love rice crispy cakes. I hope you properly indulged this weekend. Happy Easter and thanks for sharing with #WeShouldCocoa.

      I get used to it now, last year I gave up chocolate until my wedding on the 17th June – that was hard! I have properly indulged! Hope you’ve had a lovely Easter.
