Easter Memories 2013: The Rice Krispie Chick Nests (DIY Post)

Sharing is caring!

After seeing a million and two Pinterest ideas on the perfect Easter, I rapidly came to the conclusion that with Baby Dragon hanging on my leg whenever I try to spend more than two minutes alone in the kitchen, none of them were going to happen even if I did possess the awesome skills required to pull off most of them.  So, we opted for a toddler-and-baby-made Easter party instead.

Rice Krispie nests are infinitely better than the Shredded Wheat ones that we made last year.  So much less painful in every way.  Below is our step by step method because you can (I discovered last year) get it wrong.  So wrong.  Let’s not relive the frustration of that delicious (welded on) mess though, and get it right this time.

Step 1:
Melt butter in pan, add marshmallows (I used a bag of pink and white ones)

Step 2:
Melt gently and completely, stirring as you go.

Step 3:
In the background, melt chocolate in the microwave, when marshmallows and butter are completely combined.

Step 4:
Add in melted chocolate and stir.

Step 5:
REMOVE FROM HEAT and add Krispies.

Step 6:
Make sure you took heed of the big red warning ~ take your pan off that hob or live to regret it for the next hour as you’re chipping Krispies like granite from your precious pan.

Step 7 (below):
Our Little Adventurer spooned them into muffin cases (we like a big nest here, for all those chicks) and added the Mrs. Hens and eggs (jellybean and tiny eggs).  We put ours in the refrigerator to cool quicker.

As Gordon Ramsay (our neighbour, don’t you know, although we’ve yet to see him in Waitrose) would say, Rice Krispie Easter Nests… Done.
