Rice Krispies Treats Chocolate Nests Recipe

I was chosen as one of 10 blogger to be a Rice Krispies Ambassador by the Motherhood.  I’m creating my own recipe for Rice Krispies.  The winning recipe will be featured on  www.RiceKrispies.com!

I will also help The Motherhood host an online Easter Scavenger Hunt starting tomorrow! Make sure to check out The Motherhood on March 29 for details on how you could win some fun prizes!  I’ll post details about the scavenger hunt tomorrow.

I had such a tough time finding something to make, but I remembered a fun recipe we made a few Easters ago and I modified to fit with the Rice Krispies challenge.

Rice Krispies Chocolate Nests


  • 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips
  • 10 ounce bag mini or regular marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • malted eggs, jelly beans or peeps

In a large bowl add 1/4 cup butter, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. Heat on high in microwave for 2-3 minutes stirring halfway through.

On the stovetop over medium heat you can melt butter, add the chocolate chips and melt (make sure you don’t overheat them!), and add marshmallows a handful at a time. Stir until it’s a gooey, icky mess. :)

Next add the Rice Krispies and stir until they are coated in chocolate and marshmallow. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes and then shape into nests. I used a small round bowl as a guide.

Let cool and fill with eggs, peeps, or jelly beans.

This is NOT a healthy treat, but it’s fun to indulge sometimes and for me Rice Krispies bring back fond memories of my childhood. The kids adored these! They would be adorable on an Easter brunch table.
