Easy Easter Rice Krispie Treat
Cadbury Eggs are our favorite Easter candy, so naturally we put them in our nests. I wouldn’t mind finding a large caramel filled egg in my nest either! My son cut toothpicks in half to put inside the marshmallow bunnies. Then he stuck the bunnies in the nests and giggled about bunnies laying chocolate eggs. He enjoys crafts and activities like this. So, an activity involving Easter is right up his alley!
These Easter Egg Nests only took about fifteen minutes to make. There is one tip that is key to success for this recipe and this is to have a bowl of water handy so that you can continually wet your fingers when shaping the nests.
Press crispy rice and marshmallow cereal mixture into lightly greased muffin tins making an indent in each.
Set a few candy eggs and a marshmallow bunny in each nest and enjoy!
