RICE KRISPY NESTS - EASY *NO BAKE* EASTER RECIPE

Easter is upon us, PEEPS! (Lolz, see what I did there?) If you're still not sure what to bring to your family Easter Brunch then have no fear... I got ya covered. This rice krispy treat recipe is SO easy and looks so damn cute. Enjoy!

Makes 16-20 Nests (I made half this recipe)
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 40 min

WHAT YOU NEED:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10oz) bag of marshmallows
  • 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal  
  • 2-4 drops of green food coloring
  • 1/4 teaspoon of water
  • 1/2 cup of flaked coconut
  • 1 bag of chocolate eggs (I used Reese's Eggs!)

WHAT TO DO
Prep:
  1. Coat 2 (12 cup) muffin tins with cooking spray  - set aside
  2. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper - set aside


'Nests': 
  1. Melt the butter over low heat in a large saucepan. 
  2. Add the marshmallows to saucepan and stir until they are completely melted
  3. Remove from heat and add the Rice Krispies
  4. Stir the marshmallow mixture until all ingredients are well combined
  5. Divide the warm marshmallow mixture between the coated muffin tin cups (about 1/2 cup per nest) and shape the mixture into 'nests' by pressing a spoon coated in cooking spray into the center  
  6. Allow nests to cool for 30-60 min or until they are set
'Grass':
  1. In a small bowl, stir together green food coloring and water
  2. add the flaked coconut and stir until combined and the coconut is tinted light green
  3. Spread the coconut in the nest

Cover the next with 'grass', drop in a few eggs and you have a yummy and CUTE AF Easter dessert!

Always,
Allie
