Ingredients

  • 4 cups marshmallows
  • 5 cups rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups mini eggs

Instructions

  • Grease a 12-cup muffin tray and set aside.
  • Place the marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl and heat for 25-30 seconds. Stir well, and repeat heating as needed.
  • Add the melted coconut oil and vanilla extract to the marshmallows and stir well to incorporate.
  • Add the rice cereal cup at a time, gently folding it into the marshmallow mixture, until all of the cereal is incorporated.
  • Scoop heaping 1/4 cup portions of the rice krispie treats into the prepared muffin tray.
  • Wet your hands and press the rice krispies into a cup or tart-shape.
  • Place in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight to set.
  • When the nests have had a chance to set and harden, pop them out of the muffin tray using a butter knife and fill with treats. We used mini eggs but jellybeans or a some berries would also be delicious.
