Chocolate Chick Eggs in a Nest
The perfect treat for Easter. Rice cereal treats, filled with coconut and topped with chocolate candy eggs.
- 6 cups rice cereal
- 10 oz puffed marshmallows
- 3 TBSP butter
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 7-10 drops green food coloring
- 1 bag chocolate egg candies
Place the shredded coconut in a ziplock bag and add food coloring. Mix until coconut turns green. Set aside.
Place butter in a sauce pan and heat on low.
Once butter has melted, add marshmallows and stir until melted.
Remove from heat.
Add rice cereal and stir until completely mixed.
Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray or lightly spread butter in each section.
Fill each section with the finished cereal mix.
Take something round, cover it with wax paper and push down in the center of each treat. This will help to create the nest shape. Repeat with all.
Remove from the tin and place on a plate.
Fill each with green coconut.
Top with chocolate egg candies.
