Whether you are looking for the perfect Easter dessert or simply a fun treat to make with the kids this Spring, these Rice Krispie nests are sure to be a hit. They are easy to make, super adorable, and delicious too!
I love a good no-bake recipe, and these Rice Krispies nests are one of my favorites. With their Springtime vibe, these treats are perfect to make this time of year.
I often see these Rice Krispie Easter treats made with shredded coconut, dyed green with green food coloring. I have also seen them made using edible grass. Since we are total chocolate-lovers, we opted to use green chocolate instead. I think they came out great – what do you think?
I like using Robin’s Eggs for these bird’s nest treats, but you could use jelly beans or jordan almonds instead if you wanted to. Any egg-shaped treats would work really. Whatever you use, they are sure to look great and be delicious!
