Everyone will be excited about this sweet creation! With no baking at all the children can create their very own edible easter themed garden. With rice crispy grass, Oreo cookie dirt and marshmallow chicks!
If you are looking for a fun and easy way to get into the Easter spirit try this craft with the kids and wow your guests!
This beautiful DIY no-bake craft is so easy and delicious. All you need are store bought items and some things you probably already have in your pantry.
Here is what you'll need:
- Rice Crispy Treats
- Peeps Candy
- Green Food Dye
- Small bowl of water
- New paint brush or food safe basting brush
- Plastic Baggie
- Toothpicks (optional)
- Cadbury Chocolate mini eggs for garnish
- Plastic Easter eggs for garnish (optional)
First, start by preparing all the items... You will need to create a small bowl of water and food dye to create your paint! Mix a few drops of green food dye into room temp water. Use new or food friendly paint brushes.
Then, lay out the rice crispy treats on papertowel or parchment paper. Have the children paint them to create the grass! Don't over saturate. Leave to dry.
Then, add about 6-10 Oreo cookies to a baggie. This is the fun part! Have the kids smash the cookies and create the dirt!
Once the rice crispy treat is dry you can assemble your garden! For presentation purposes only (remove before eating) place a tooth pick in the bottom of your peeps. Then place onto the rice crispy treat. Repeat this step for all peeps and rice crispy treats. (*Note if you choose not to use the toothpicks you can simply place the peep on top of the crispy treat while it is still a bit damp. The sugars will form a small bond when they dry)
Finally scatter the Oreo crumbs onto your platter of choice. Then arrange your peep and rice crispy treats on top to create the garden. Finish by adding some chocolate and/or plastic eggs, enjoy!
