homemade easter egg nests

I whipped up these little easter egg nests a few days ago and they were so easy and turned out so cute–I had to share!

I used the basic rice krispy treat recipe, but instead of rice krispies I used rice noodles.

For ingredients you’ll need rice noodles, marshmallows, butter, non-stick spray {for the muffin tin} and jelly beans or chocolate eggs.

Follow the directions on the marshmallow bag or these directions here. After they were ready, I put a scoop of mixture into each muffin tin. The mixture was really hot, so I waited a few minutes until it cooled and then used my fingers to shape each scoop into a nest.

To finish it off, I stamped manilla tags with our enjoy stamp and tied them around cellophane bags. So simple and so sweet!

Wouldn’t these be fun at each place setting for Easter lunch?

Now my mouth is watering, must go find some leftover chocolate eggs to munch on!


      1. I tried the chow mein noodles…I think rice noodles would work better. Definately will try again 🙂

  1. I’ve see these here and there lately in the blogsphere and I must say YOURS looks especially wonderful!!! I’m going to be making these with Alice. 🙂

    OH….and Megan is right, leftover chocolate is definitely an oxymoron.
