Easter Nest Treats- How cute are these homemade Easter Nest Treats?! This is an easy recipe to put together, send them to school, or enjoy with the kids at home. You can even take some to the co workers, adults love them too!
Last year I hosted brunch on Easter Sunday and made these adorable Nest Treats for the kids, they were a hit! Kids and adults alike loved them and I vowed to make them a yearly tradition. Since we’re just a couple of weeks away from Easter I thought I’d share these with you all one more time, in case you missed them last time!
Make ahead the night before or even first thing in the morning. The nests come together quickly, and the kids can help!
Malted milk eggs are one my faves because they look like pastel Robin’s eggs, and they add enough color so I don’t feel the need to embellish with more. If you’re feeling creative then by all means add more decorations if you like; sprinkles, edible grass, anything goes!
Super easy and cute, the perfect Easter treat! For the grown ups, give these yumtastic Raspberry Brownie Sandwiches a try!
Rice Crispy Bird’s Nests
Add butter to a shallow pan. When the butter is completely melted, lower the heat and stir in the marshmallows. Once the marshmallows are melted, add the rice cereal, folding it in with a wooden spoon.
When totally combined (stringy marshmallow), let it cool for about 2 minutes.
This is sticky stuff! Spray cooking spray on your hands and scoop out a palm-full of the mixture and place into muffin tins, pressing down with your fingers.
Allow to set for a few minutes and decorate your rice crispy nests!
