Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Rice Cereal Easter Treats

You will need:
  • Rice cereal treat mix (see link for directions/recipe)
  • Icing
  • Small candies like M&M's or sprinkles
  • Cookie cutters
  • Cake or cookie pop sticks
  • Candy Melts

Rice Cereal Pops Directions, Flowers:
1. Make a batch of rice cereal treats.
2. Press evenly into a greased baking dish. DM Tip: I like to use butter to grease the dish.
3. Allow to cool.
4. Use the cookie cutter to cut out shapes and remove from dish/pan.
5. Place a small dab of icing on top of cookie stick and insert into bottom of cereal treat.
6. Decorate.

Rice Cereal Egg Directions:

1. Make a batch of rice cereal treats.
2. Allow to slightly cool, but not all the way.
3. With your hands, form into a large egg shape.
4. Allow to cool completely on a piece of waxed paper.
5. Once the egg is cooled, decorate with small tubes of icing and candies.
6. For the small egg shaped pops,  form small egg shapes with your hands and allow to cool. Melt some candy melt and place a small dab on the top of a cookie stick and insert into the bottom of the rice cereal treat. Let set. Dip egg into melted candy and let excess drip off. Place standing up in a styrofoam block to set. Once candy melt has hardened, decorate. DM Tip: If you use sprinkles, decorate before the candy melt hardens completely.
