A sweet classic with an Easter twist! 
Kids young and old will love these. 
Super for gatherings.

  • 4 cups of Marshmallows
  • 5 cusps of Rice Krispies
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil or butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups of mini candy eggs

Grease a 12 cup cupcake pan. Set aside.

Put your marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl.  Heat for 25-30 seconds. Stir well, and repeat heating as needed.

Add the melted coconut oil *or butter).and vanilla extract to the marshmallows and stir well.

Add the rice cereal cup at a time, gently folding it into the marshmallow mixture, until all of the cereal is incorporated.

Scoop heaping 1/4 cup portions of the rice krispie treats into the prepared muffin tray.

Wet your fingers and form a cup shape (shape of a nest). 

Put in the fridge for 2 hours to set.  Then pop them out (you may have to use a butter knife to help them out.)

Fill with your "eggs"...chocolate, jelly beans, small malt eggs.
