What you need:
Rice Krispie Cereal
Green Grass (Edible Grass, Dyed Coconut, or even Frosting)
Eggs (I used Whopper Mini Eggs, you can also use Jelly Beans)
Make Rice Krispie Treat Recipe
I made a smaller batch to fill my 24 mini muffins
Use 3 Tablespoons of Butter and 3 Cups of Mini Marshmallows melted in a pan then add in 3 cups of Rice Krispie Cereal, mix together.
I used a mini ice cream scoop it was the perfect amount to place in my mini muffin tin. Pressed the mixture in each cup, I used the back of a measuring spoon (Teaspoon size) to help indent the Rice Krispie to form nest you can also use your thumb.
I used scissors to cut up the Edible Grass. My boys placed the chopped grass in each nest and 2 Whopper Eggs on each nest, they had fun helping.
I love the ways these turned out and so did my boys. The grass was a big hit with one child it is Apple Flavored, the other two said next time to use frosting. The Edible Grass does not really add a great taste, but it sure does look cute. At the bottom of this post I added pictures with nests with frosting per my sons request, lol.
Since I was in the Rice Krispie Easter mood, I also made Easter Egg shaped Rice Krispie Treats. I used a plastic Easter Egg sprayed with non-stick spray to help mold my treat.
I also made a smaller batch so I could make multiple colors.
EASTER EGG RICE KRISPIE TREATS
Make Rice Krispie Mixture (The 2 Cup Recipe Below makes about 8 eggs in each color)
Use 2 Tablespoons of Butter and 2 Cups of Mini Marshmallows melted in a pan.
Add in food coloring before the cereal.
For the Pink I used 4 drops of McCormick Neon Pink Food Coloring
For the Green I used 2 drops of McCormick Neon Green Food Coloring (next time I would use 3-4 drops)
For the Purple I used 2 drops of McCormick Neon Purple Food Coloring
Once Food coloring is mixed in, stir in cereal, mix well.
I let the mixture cool for about 5 to 10 minutes so the mixture would be easier to handle. You don't want to let it cool too much though or you won't be able to form the eggs.
I sprayed a plastic Easter Egg with non-stick cooking spray and then filled the egg to form the egg shape. It was very easy and I love the way they turned out.
