"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."

"me and my 5 and 9 year old made these for a school treat. we had so much fun and not a big mess either."
"I made these for my kids daycare easter festival. They loved it!!! Very easy to make and it wasn't time consuming!! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!"
"These made great table additions for our Easter Dinner and the kids loved them for dessert. And so easy to make. The kids will want them again next year."
"So cute what a brillant idea! We made these for my 3 year old daughters playgroup as a easter treat for snack time.The teachers were really impressed and the kids loved them. Thanks for posting a great recipe Parsley!"
"I made these for Easter. Kids enjoyed them. I think that maybe one bag of mini marshmallows would have been enough."
"I made these the other night with my 3 year old to take to an easter egg hunt at our church they were a big hit everyone commented on how cute they were, and the kids really got a kick out of the eggs the chick layed some were a little scared to eat the eggs until they figured out they were chocolate =). We will probably do this every year now next year I think i will buy different colored peeps. I dont really like peeps so i just take mine off and have just the nest with the eggs yummy! thank you for sharing this recipe!"
"This was so easy. DD (almost 3) and DMIL helped make these. We used rice krispies and only did the jelly beans in the middle. Great fun project."
"My three-year old daughter and I made these for her preschool class, and I took some to work too. They're a huge hit with all ages! I didn't put them in cupcake holders, just set them on foil trays after they set up and they did fine, though I may try the holders next year to see the difference. I used malted milk chocolate mini robin's eggs and regular Rice Krispies (couldn't find the cocoa where I stopped - next time I will try to find the cocoa again or add cocoa powder as another reviewer suggested just to give these a "twiggier" color). These are easy, delicious and we had lots of fun making them. We used all different color Peeps which was super cute but kept all the Peeps yellow on the kids' treats to avoid fighting over color preferences. :) Thanks for a new family tradition!"
"My four year old and I just got done making these. We had a blast. They are yummy too. Thanks for a fun recipe to spend time together."
"These are really cute, I haven't eaten one yet but the look great, I used 1 Strawberry Malt egg and 2 Chocolate Mini Eggs in mine and it worked out great, they are so adorable, will look really cute on the bake sale table! I also used Rice Krispies cereal and added a small amount of cocoa to the marshmallow"
"These are really cute and fun (and taste good too)! My two year old "helped" me and he was so excited about these. We used little malted robin eggs. I didn't read carefully and just packed the rice krispie mixture right into the cupcake liner. It actually worked out pretty well that way - they are easy enough to peel off."
"Easy, fast and really cute! Used Cocoa Pebbles cereal and jellybeans only in the nests. Also added a bit of green tinted coconut under the jellybeans which I do not recommend because the kids just picked it out. Great recipe which was very popular with the kiddos. Thanks for sharing!"
