Easter Treats: Easter Nests

These colorful Easter treats are sure to put a smile on every little bunny’s face.  The nests are made from rice cereal and marshmallows. Little children can help form the nests, just make sure to allow the mixture to cool a little. Once the nests are cold and firm add a little peep and some chocolate eggs to the nest.

This recipe makes 12 nests.

~Happy Easter!
