Easter Rice Krispies Bird's Nest with Whopper Robin Eggs

 I had so much fun making these little rice krispies bird's nest with my kids for Easter.  The stores are full of fantastic egg shaped candies for the Easter holiday so I had to do something fun with these adorable Whopper Robin Eggs I saw.  The rice krispies made the perfect nest and they were so easy to make with my kids.   Stay tune this week for a few more Easter treats. :)


 Ingredients:

1 (10.5oz) bag mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
6 cups rice krispies
a few drops yellow food coloring (optional)
baking coconut (sweetened)
a few drops of green food coloring
Jelly Beans or egg shaped candy like the Whoppers Robin eggs
Cooking spray

Equipment:
Muffins trays
ice cream scoop or cookie scoop
 

Directions:
On medium low heat, melt butter and  marshmallows (add yellow food coloring if you desire here). Once fully melted add the rice krispies and mix well.  Butter or spray cooking spray on muffin trays. Fill each muffin hole with half a scoop of rice krispies mixture.  You must work fast because you don't want the rice krispies to set up before you get a chance to mold them.  Spray the back of a spoon or a cookie scoop with cooking spray and make the nest in the right shape.  Dye the coconut with a several drops of food coloring until you reach a desired color.  Fill with dyed coconut and jelly beans or egg candies.   Allow to sit for 1 hour before serving.  Enjoy.

  2. Adorable! How were there any chocolates left with little fingers in them? I'm sure my daughter would have laid waste to the batch before the eggs ever made it into the nests.
