Easter Rice Krispie Treats

Cook Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American Classics
Servings: 24 nests


  • 8 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
  • 8 tbsps butter
  • 16 ounces mini-marshmallows
  • Egg M&M's


  • In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows over medium low heat. Stir these constantly so they do not burn.
  • Remove from heat right before the last marshmallows melt.
  • Add in rice cereal and use a spatula to fold the marshmallow mixture into the cereal. Continue until everything is incorporated.
  • Let sit 10-15 minutes to cool just slightly so that you can easily form the nexts with your hands.
  • To form the nests, butter your hands (yep, use butter like lotion) and then grab a tennis ball sized amount of krispie mixture and make a ball. Press your thumb into the center to make the indent of the nest and form the outsides as needed.
  • Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and repeat with remaining mixture, rebuttering your hands as needed.
  • Allow to cool. Once cool add egg shaped M&M's to the nest


Servings will vary on size of nests made.
You may also use muffin tins to make the next shape. I found by hand the easiest.
