Love, Love, Love these super easy little Rice Krispie Treat Bird Nests that are super easy to make. A fun and easy Spring activity you can do solo or get your kiddos involved too.
I love doing seasonal or holiday activities, but sometimes I get into the mom guilt of not doing enough. Days are busy enough so anything I can do to make the holidays fun but not stressful is right up my alley. These little Rice Krispie Treat Bird Nests are the best of both worlds. Nothing fancy, you can make these with things you may already have on hand. No laborious cooking, just simple little Rice Krispie Treat Bird Nests that are quick.
Don’t over think the supplies. You can use whatever you have on hand for these Rice Krispie Treat Bird Nests.
We used the Wilton Wafer Sugar Grass that I ordered on Amazon but you can use sprinkles or frosting or cooke crumbles, anything you like. Then we used the pastel chocolate eggs for our nests but I think jelly beans, M&Ms or any other type of candy eggs would be great. Search the pantry or raid your kids Easter candy before you have to put it in the baskets. (You know you’ve already snuck some. wait, just me?)
I made my simple Rice Krispie Treats Recipe (with my special secret ingredient) to make these Rice Krispie Treat Bird Nests. Then all you need to do is spray a muffin tin with some nonstick spray and then place a bit of the Rice Krispie Treat mixture into each muffin tin cup and form it into the cup to make the nest. I use a small piece of parchment paper to form the rice krispie treat mixture to to the muffin tin and create the nest.
After the Rice Krispie Treat Nests set up, you add your grass and then your eggs.
Put these on your Spring dessert list! Take a pic and tag me with #lolohk I love to see what you are making. Also, follow me over on Facebook and Instagram @lolohomekitchen
