  • Ingredients: For the Nests
    6 cups Rice Krispies or generic cereal
    4 Tbsp Soy-free Earth Balance (or a butter that fits your needs)
    4-5 cups mini marshmallows

    Grass
    Green food coloring
    Frosting of your choice -AND/OR- 2 cups flaked coconut

    To Fill the Nests
    Egg-shaped chocolates or Jelly Beans
  • Instructions: Instructions Melt Earth Balance or butter in a large pot on the stove.
    Add marshmallows and stir constantly, until fully melted.
    Immediately add cereal and stir until evenly distributed. Remove from heat.
    Grease your hands with additional butter or oil. Keep more handy to keep re-greasing.
    Working quickly, take out a handful of the treats and carefully sculpt into a nest shape. Use your thumbs to push a depression in the middle and cup the bottom to help it hold its shape.
    Place on waxed paper and repeat until all treats are made.
    Add Grass to your Nest
    Tint frosting green and spoon into a piping bag with a narrow, circular tip.
    Pipe blades of grass onto each nest.
    If you prefer coconut grass add the coconut flakes to a small plastic bag or jar.
    In a cup, mix together 1-2 teaspoons water and a few drops of green food coloring.
    Pour the tinted water over the coconut, and seal the bag/jar.
    Shake the container until all of the coconut is evenly colored.
    Sprinkle green coconut artfully over the green frosting, or directly onto the Krispie nests.

    Place three egg-shaped candies or jelly beans into the center of each nest.
