Jurassic Park Dino Egg Dessert
- 10 cups Rice Krispies
- 2 cups Fruity Pebbles
- 2 packages marshmallows
- 6 Tablespoons butter
- 1 pre-made 9x13 chocolate cake
- chocolate candies
- 2 - 9” round cake pans or bowls
- 1 clean dinosaur toy
You will be making two batches of Rice Krispies treats, one batch for each side of the egg.
For the first round use half of the Rice Krispies, 5 cups, and stir it together with 1 cup of Fruity Pebbles. Set aside.
In a large pot, melt 3 tablespoons of butter with 1 package of marshmallows and stir until melted completely.
Turn off the heat and stir in the Rice Krispies Fruity Pebbles mixture.
Line the round bowl with plastic wrap and press the Rice Krispies into the sides of the bowl, leaving a hollow center. Let cool slightly.
Press half of the chocolate cake into the hollow center, and fill in the top with chocolate candies.
Now repeat the process to make the second half of the egg.
To serve, press both sides together or simply place a dinosaur toy in the center and present the two sides apart as if the egg is cracked.
