Easter is quickly approaching and these Rice Krispies Bird’s Nest Treats are always a hit at my house. The boys love to help me make them and they are very yummy! You can change out the candies inside if you prefer something else over M&M’s.
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
- 4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
- Bag of Speckled Easter Egg M&M’s
Melt the butter in the microwave for about 1 minute.
Add in the marshmallows and stir with the butter. Place back in the microwave for about 1 minute and 45 seconds. Stir together until completely melted together and smooth.
Place the Rice Krispies in the mixture and stir completely.
Have a 12-count Muffin pan already sprayed with Cooking Spray ready to go.
Take a generous amount of the mixture and place in each Cupcake slot.
While the slots are still soft, take a spoon and create a small hole in the middle of each one to form a nest or basket.
Let the nests harden for about 10-15 minutes. You can also go back at this time to adjust your nests and take out more of the mixture if needed.
Add in the speckled M&M’s to your nests.
Eat and Enjoy!
You could really use whatever candies that you like in the middle of the nests but I love these speckled M&M’s for Easter!
