Edible Easter Basket

There is no shortage of creative ways to celebrate the Easter holiday. I recently stumbled upon this adorable, edible Easter basket made entirely out of cereal and marshmallows! How fun is that??

This edible DIY project is impressive. That said, it's far easier to pull off than it looks. Basically, you're making Rice Krispies treats using Fruity Pebbles cereal and smushing it into two pieces: The base (for which I used a 3-quart saucepan as a mold) and the handle. I opted not to put any wire in my handle since I wanted the basket to be entirely edible, but if you want this to sit out for a while, follow the alternative procedure in step 4. These instructions will yield 1 basket. Have fun!!

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 (10-ounce) bags marshmallows
  • 2 (11-ounce) boxes Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • Assorted candy, for filling
  • 4 wooden skewers
1. Line 3-quart or similar-sized saucepan with aluminum foil; coat with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In large saucepot over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in marshmallows and cook, stirring, 2 minutes or until melted. Remove saucepot from heat; fold in cereal until evenly coated.
3. Spray hands with cooking spray. A little bit at a time, press and mold all but 2 cups cereal mixture in bottom and up side of prepared saucepan to make 1-in.-thick basket base; freeze in saucepan until firm.
4. Press and hold remaining 2 cups cereal mixture into rounded handle, at least 1-inch thick and freeze until firm. (Alternative procedure: Mold remaining cereal mixture and 1-foot craft wire or straightened coat hanger, trimmed; bend and freeze.)
5. Use foil to lift out basket base; remove foil and discard. Insert 4 wooden skewers, vertically, into basket wall where you'd like handle to attach (2 on each side).
6. Press skewers through handle ends to secure; mold and smooth cereal mixture together where base and handle meet. Use other skewers to support handle and freeze again until very hard, about 1 hour (skip this step if using wire).
7. Fill basket with assorted candy. To create the grass use Sour Power Green Apple Candy Straws. Cut the straws in half and then snip the ends down the middle to create "grass blades" using kitchen scissors.
