Mini Egg Marshmallow Krispie Nests


Mini Egg Marshmallow Krispie Nests
This year is flying by! I really can't believe we're less than a month away from Easter. During the recent snowy weather, the kids and I got creative in the kitchen and developed some yummy Easter treats with our all time favourite Easter confectionery, Mini Eggs! These cute marshmallow krispie nests were one of our creations and they make a great rainy (or snowy!) day activity for kids. We filled the nests with chocolate spread and mini eggs but of course you could try other fillings and sweets.

The nests will keep for up to 5 days in a sealed container (if they are left out too long the krispie bits will soften), so a great one for making ahead of time.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINI EGG NESTS

  • When trying to get the nests out of the muffin tin, use a metal teaspoon to ease them out gently. Freezing them will help.
  • If you're not keen on chocolate spread, use Biscoff spread or jam instead.
  • Replace the mini eggs with other sweets if you wish.
