Bird Nest Rice Krispie Treats

Don’t worry, these treats look like they would be difficult but they really are not.

How to Make Rice Krispie Bird Nests

After making your rice krispie treats (without putting them in a pan), you will need to work on forming the nests before the treats cool and harden.

The secret to forming the nests: use a cupcake tin.

Grease the insides of the cupcake tin with a non-stick spray.

Then spoon a bit of the rice krispie treats into the cupcake tin, and press down in the middle to create a nest.

You do need to work fairly quickly so that the treats in the pan do not harden before you get to make them into bird nests.

Once they have hardened, take the nests out and fill them with some candy eggs and top them with a Peep.
