Rice Krispie Treat Nests with Easter Peeps

Rice Krispie Treat Nests with Easter Peeps
Today I’ve got an amazingly simple and fun treat! It’s a great take on a classic favorite, The Rice Krispie Treat, with some fun Easter ingredients added in to create a festive and fun edible party favor that everyone will enjoy!
So I was thinking, what could be more fun for Easter than a marshmallow peep? How about marshmallow peeps perched upon their very own Rice Krispie Treat Nest?  I made a batch of these the other day for my husband to carry to work, and they went over very well! (I only wish the photos were a little better, but I was totally rushed!)

Rice Krispy Treat Nests with Easter Peeps

What You’ll Need: 

6 Cups Rice Krispies
1 Bag Marshmallows
3 Tablespoon stick butter, sliced.
15 Marshmallow Peeps
1 Bag Jelly Beans
Muffin Tin
Directions: Melt together marshmallow and butter in the microwave or on the stove top on low heat. Add Rice Krispies and stir together.  Spoon treat mixture into individual muffin cups. You should have enough to fill about 15 cups. Top each nest with 3 to 5 Jelly Beans. Next top each nest with a peep. You may need to press the peep down to get it to stay atop the next.  Chill in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes. Then using a spoon or spatula carefully remove the nests from the muffin tins.
Place on a fun serving tray or place in treat bags for a fun party treat!
Tip:  Don’t like Peeps?  Serve just the nest with a few eggs on top as shown below.
Tip: I found these adorable treat bags at Wal-mart. They were $1.47 for 20 bags, and the treats fit perfectly inside.  They also looked super cute, and it made them very portable!

    I love these! I am going to try these with my 20 2nd graders. I will probably swap the Cadbury mini eggs (the ones with the colored shells) for the jellybeans, since a girl can never have enough chocolate. Thanks for sharing this!

  26. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your weblog.
    You have some really good posts and I believe I would be a
    good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely
    love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a

  27. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
    to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.

  28. Super cute. Always fun to dress up a classic for the holidays!
