Easter Rice Krispies Treats

I needed an Easter treat to take to my son's class Easter party, so I turned to Pinterest of course! These came from and they turned out DARLING! If you need a cute little treat for Easter this week, make these!!


Easter Rice Krispies Treats

1/4 tsp water

2-4 drops green food coloring

1/2 cup flaked coconut

3 Tbsp. butter or margarine

1 10 oz. package (about 40) regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows

6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

jelly beans

Spray two regular size muffin tins or one large muffin tin with cooking spray. (The recipe says you will need 16 2 1/2 inch muffin cups, but I was able to stretch it to make more than that.) In a small bowl stir together water and green food coloring. Add coconut. Stir until coconut is tinted. Spread on a baking sheet to dry.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until they are completely melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated. Divide warm mixture into prepared muffin tins. Shape mixture into individual cups. (A trick to help with this...I sprayed two spoons with cooking spray to prevent them from sticking while placing in the muffin tins.) Cool. Remove from pans.
Fill cooled nests with coconut, marshmallows, and jelly beans.

How cute are these?!? I think the kids in my son's class are going to love them! Enjoy! :)
