Rice Krispies Treats Birds Nests are the perfect sweet treat for Easter. An adorably delicious combination of rice krispie treats and Cadbury mini eggs. Sweet marshmallow crispy treats decorated to resemble tiny birds’ nests. Resting on a thin bed of chocolate, the nests are sprinkled with colored coconut and adorned with milk chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs.
I’m going to be honest here, Friends. I cannot wait for Valentine’s Day to be over with each year! I’m not against celebrating love, pink hearts, glittery cards, or even cutesy little cherubic archers. I love my family. Love glitter. pink. and hearts. What’s not to love about celebrating LOVE? Not a thing! Except for the fact that the milk chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs won’t hit retail shelves until after all of that Valentine candy is cleared away.
I seriously can not get enough of those little eggs! I bought my first two bags of the season on February 16th. By February 18th, I went back by the store to pick up a few more bags because somehow, some way, the initial bags were completely empty! I’m positive that there were candy coated chocolates inside of those bags when I bought them, but I can’t be sure.
Does chocolate evaporate when exposed to air? I only ask because I don’t have any other explanation as to how 20 ounces of chocolate candies can disappear in just two days. All I remember is that I opened a bag to share a few candies with my boys. Later that night, I tucked them into bed before sitting down with a DVR full of Sherlock episodes and the intent of editing photos while simultaneously getting my Benedict Cumberbatch fix. That’s where things get a little fuzzy. After editing approximately 37,241 photos, the next thing I know..BAM! Both bags were empty.
I’m not going to admit that I single-handedly demolished two huge bags of dreamy chocolate eggs. But, I pretty much single-handedly demolished two huge bags of dreamy chocolate eggs.
There. I said it. I OWNED IT!
I’m totally obsessed with Cadbury Mini Eggs and I don’t care who knows it!
And nerdy English characters on BBC television but that’s a story for another time.
You’ll be obsessed with Cadbury Mini Eggs after you try these cute Rice Krispies Treats Birds Nests.
Because if there’s one thing that is even more addictive than the mini eggs, it’s Rice Krispie treats. Combine both of those with a little more chocolate and a touch of coconut, and they make the sweetest little birds nest cookies. I can’t think of a more adorable centerpiece for Easter than these cookies because nests signify renewal through new life, just like Easter.
Bird’s nests are a sure sign that Spring is near – a season that I’m increasingly convinced might just skip the 45th Parallel region all together. So when in doubt, I make my own bird’s nests! It makes me feel better. And slightly warmer. Plus there’s chocolate involved, so all’s right with the world.
