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. 

What supplies do I need for these Bird Nest Treats?

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?)

What do I do for the Rice Krispie Treat part of the Bird Nests?

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

Rice Krispie Treat Bird Nests

I love these super easy and fun Spring Rice Krispie Treat Bird Nests. Great activity to get your kiddos involved in the kitchen.

Ingredients

4 tablespoons butter

6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal

1 package of large marshmallows

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Edible grass candy, sprinkles, frosting, etc.

Chocolate eggs, jelly beans, M&Ms, etc

Instructions

  1. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan on low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows, white chocolate chips and vanilla. Continue to cook on low until everything is melted and smooth.
  3. Remove from the heat, add the Rice Krispies and stir until the cereal is well coated.
  4. Scoop a large spoonful of the Rice Krispie Treat mixture into the prepared muffin tin. Then you will press down the middle of the mixture to shape the mix to the cupcake tin. I find using a small square of parchment sprayed with nonstick spray to press down the mix works easiest. Set aside for 30-60 minutes for the nests to set.
  5. Once set, remove the nests from the cupcake tin. Sprinkle your grass into the bottom of the nest then add the candy eggs over the grass. Voila! Enjoy!
