Coconut Oil Rice Krispie Treats – Easter Style!

I posted this recipe a couple years ago around Christmas! I thought it would be a great idea to re-post it with a little Easter flair instead. It’s nice when you can whip up something yummy with only a few ingredients! Plus since we are all having to stay home, you most likely have everything you need already to make these, without going out to the store! Cut them into some Easter shapes like crosses or eggs, and you’ll be extra ready to celebrate!


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 16oz bag mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispie Cereal


  1. Grease a 9×13 pan with coconut oil and set aside. I like to fold a paper towel in a little square, then dip it in my coconut oil jar and just lightly rub that all over the pan. It works great!
  2. In a large pot, combine the coconut oil and marshmallows over medium heat until completely melted. Make sure you continue to stir for about three to four minutes.
  3. Once the mixture is completely smooth, add in the cereal and mix until it is evenly coated. Add in some festive sprinkles if you want and mix it up even more!
  4. Pour into your greased pan and let them cool for about an hour. Once cooled, feel free to cut into squares or use a cookie cutter to make your treats into fun shapes for the holidays! If you do use a cookie cutter, it helps if you rub little coconut oil on the inside of it so the cereal isn’t as sticky.

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
