This is the perfect treat for Easter – it’s quick, easy, and fun for adults and kids alike! It’s a crunchy, gooey, chocolaty little nest that’s as tasty as it is festive!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 10 oz mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups cocoa krispies cereal
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Candy eggs (Reese’s or M&M)

Directions:

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter
  2. Add marshmallows, stirring continuously until mixture is uniform
  3. Add vanilla, mix
  4. Add cocoa krispies, stir well until mixture is uniform
  5. (Optional) – add chocolate chips for extra chocolaty goodness
  6. Scoop mixture into prepared muffin tin (line with parchment, use silicone baking cups, or grease) and using the back of a wet spoon, press into nest shape
  7. Melt chocolate chips, using a dollop of melted chocolate to adhere the eggs to the nest. Let cool so the chocolate hardens, and enjoy!
