Rice Krispie Egg Nests Ingredients
It only takes 5 ingredients to make the Rice Krispie Egg Nests! And you don’t need a lot.
- Marshmallows (big or small, it doesn’t matter!)
- Rice Krispies (the cereal)
- Cadbury Chocolate Mini Eggs
- Easter Pastel Sprinkles
You’ll want to use some extra butter, margarine, or non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking when moulding the batter into a muffin tray and indenting with a spoon to form the nests.
How to Make Easter Egg Nests
- Melt the butter in a large pot on low/medium heat, about 1-2 minutes.
- Mix in the marshmallows until melted and then mix in the Rice Krispies. Remove from heat.
- Mould the batter into a greased muffin tray and used a greased spoon to indent the nests.
- Top the nests with lots of sprinkles and a some chocolate mini eggs! They’re ready to eat!
- This recipe makes 6 large egg nests using a jumbo muffin tray. If you used a regular sized muffin tray, you could make around 8-10 nests.
- Try to work fast to mould your nests while the Rice Krispie batter is still warm. If cooled, it hardens and become very difficult to shape.
- When making the wells in your nests, grease the back of a spoon so that the batter doesn’t stick to it when pressing down!
- You can use inexpensive, no-name mini eggs or other chocolate treats to top. There are also really cute pastel-coloured M&M’s!
