Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. Grease a 12-cup muffin tray and set aside.
  2. Place the marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl and heat for 25-30 seconds. Stir well, and repeat heating as needed.
  3. Add the melted coconut oil and vanilla extract to the marshmallows and stir well to incorporate.
  4. Add the rice cereal cup at a time, gently folding it into the marshmallow mixture, until all of the cereal is incorporated.
  5. Scoop heaping 1/4 cup portions of the rice krispie treats into the prepared muffin tray.
  6. Wet your hands and press the rice krispies into a cup or tart-shape.
  7. Place in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight to set.
  8. 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.
