Dinosaur Egg Treats

My son's birthday party so we are in birthday party prep mode.  Our theme is dinosaurs.  I made him a pinata and today I made little dinosaur eggs with toy dinosaurs inside.

First wash your dinosaurs.
 I used Cocoa DinoBites cereal.
 Measure out 7 cups of cereal and take out some of the tiny marshmallows, about a cups worth.

 Melt 3 Tbsp of butter, a 10 ounce bag of marshmallows, and a Tablespoon of corn syrup together until the marshmallows are melted.
 Pour on the cereal and stir carefully to combine.
 Add in the marshmallows from the cereal.

 Spray vegetable oil spray on your hands or butter them and form the cereal into a ball around a toy dinosaur.  Wrap in plastic wrap.

Dinosaur Egg Treats


6 cups of Puffed Rice Cereal or 7 cups of DynoBites cereal
10 ounce bag of marshmallows
3 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. corn syrup (optional)

    Measure out the cereal into a bowl.  If you are using DynoBites take out about a cup of marshmallows to be used later.
    Melt the butter into a medium sized saucepan.  Add the marshmallows (and corn syrup if desired) and stir until smooth.  Pour onto the cereal and stir carefully.  Then add the reserved marshmallows and stir carefully.  Spray hands with vegetable oil spray or rub with batter.  Form into a ball around a toy dinosaurs.  Wrap in plastic wrap.
