I make these little treats for my son to take to school. It's a perfect, cute little Easter treat. I serve them in the individual over-sized cupcake papers. You could use plain Rice Krispies and/or omit the chick.....still just as cute. Prep time does not include cooling and setting time.

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 5 tablespoons margarine
  • 6 12 cups mini marshmallows (about 1 1/2 10.5 oz bags)
  • 9 cups COCOA KRISPIES® cereal
  • 90 unwrapped pastel candy-coated chocolate egg-shaped decorative candies (I usually use a combo of Reeses Pieces Pastel Eggs, Hershey's Pastel Eggs, Cadbury and or jelly bean) or 90 jelly beans (I usually use a combo of Reeses Pieces Pastel Eggs, Hershey's Pastel Eggs, Cadbury and or jelly bean)
  • 2 (4 1/2 ounce) packages marshmallows, peeps chicks (I use yellow)

Directions

  1. Lightly spray 2 cupcake/muffin tins w/ nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large saucepan, over low heat, melt margarine. Add marshmallows, and stir frequently over the low heat until melted and mixed well with melted margarine. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in Rice Krispies and mix to coat well.
  4. Immediately spoon into muffin/cupcake tins to almost full, but not packed down.
  5. With greased or wax-paper-covered thumb, OR greased shot glass, press down on center of the Krispies treats to form nest shape. Allow to cool and set completely---about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove to extra-large foil muffin/cupcake liners.
  7. Place 2 or 3 egg-shaped candies in each nest.
  8. Separate the marshmallow Peep chicks and gently press a chick on top of each nest.
