We love making cornflake cakes and chocolate rice krispie cakes and this Easter we thought we’d vary our usual recipes and make chocolate rice krispie nests as easy Easter treats to enjoy alongside Easter eggs! With Cadbury Mini Eggs everywhere it’s only right that they have little chocolate Easter nests to sit in and these no bake treats are so easy to make.

These Mini Egg Rice Krispie Nests make a great alternative to typical Rice Krispie Squares or slices and are something the whole family enjoy. Plus, you need next to nothing to make them as they’re an easy no bake treat. Just a heat proof bowl, melted chocolate, rice krispies and treats to go in the middle!

How easy are these Easter Rice Krispies treats to make?

The Chocolate Rice Krispie Easter Nests are super easy to make and look fantastic too. We use greased muffin tins to make them in but you could also make them in cupcake cases inside the muffin tin. We grease the muffin pan with cooking spray, butter or margarine.

These chocolate nests are just the right size for chocolate Mini Eggs but you could also put any other mini chocolate eggs in them – Mini Creme Eggs, Galaxy Golden Eggs, jelly beans, miniature marshmallows or plain chocolate egg candies – whatever candy eggs you have available. The Rice Krispie nests and a really good size to store any chocolate treats!

The children love these Easter rice krispie treats as an alternative to an Easter Egg, as an afternoon snack, for an Easter dessert or as part of a part buffet.

They Cadbury egg nests look great, taste great and are just a wonderful Easter treat for kids. They store well in an airtight container for a few days – although they never seem to last that long! Plus, they’re a great way to use up leftover Easter chocolate too. And, if you don’t have any little eggs left to fill them you can simple use mini marshmallows instead.

If you want the Rice Crispy nests to look more ‘Easter’ you can always use white chocolate and add some green food coloring to make little green nests for the brightly coloured Easter candy inside. However you make them, the rice krispies Easter nests will be well received by all who try them!
