Rice Krispie Nests

Rice Krispie Treat Nests

These Rice Krispie Treat Nests are one of our favorite traditions! They’re easy to make and turn out so cute! You can serve them on a platter as part of a dessert spread, or wrap them up individually and send in lunches or give as gifts.

The best part about these Rice Krispie Treat Nests is that you only need four simple ingredients to make them: butter, marshmallows, Rice Krispies and Mini Cadbury Candy Eggs! If you can’t find the Cadbury brand, just grab another egg-shaped candy and you are good to go!

The one hassle of this recipe is that the marshmallow mixture gets a little sticky. To minimize the stickiness, grease the muffin tin and your hands with a little butter before pressing the gooey mixture into muffin cups.

Think you might try these? I’d love to hear if you do! For some other fun Easter dessert ideas, try our Classic Banana Cake, Favorite M&M’s cookies (with Easter M&M’s) or My Mom’s Key Lime Pie.

Rice Krispie Treat Nests



  1. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with butter or baking spray.
  2. In a large pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth. Turn off heat. Add Rice Krispies and stir until evenly coated.
  3. Scoop portions of the Rice Krispie mixture into the muffin cups, pressing down a bit as you go. Grease your fingers with butter or baking spray as needed. Press down in the center of each nest to make an indention for the eggs. Let the nests cool for 15- 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the nests from the muffin tin, arrange on a platter and fill with mini Cadbury eggs! For easier serving and sharing, you can place each nest in a paper cupcake liner. Enjoy!
