Easter Marshmallow Nests

Marshmallow Easter Nests are a fun alternative to the traditional chocolate rice krispie nests. Scroll down for my simple recipe.

Easter treats

It’s that time of year where we all get silly over fluffy chicks, little eggs, and food blogs are filled with experimental hot cross bun flavours. (Last year and posted these Chocolate Orange Hot Cross Buns!)

In the UK kids are given two weeks holiday over the Easter period and I’m pretty sure its tradition in houses up and down the country for the kids to make a batch or two of chocolate rice krispie nests during the Easter holidays. I may be childless and 26 but I’m not afraid to admit that it’s still a tradition to make rice krispie nests in our house too! With just two weeks until Easter I’m sure this won’t be the only batch of Easter Marshmallow Nests that I make this year.

Chocolate vs marshmallow

Now don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate, but there’s plenty of that around at Easter so over the last couple of years I’ve lent towards making mine with marshmallows rather than chocolate. Theseย straw coloured nests are sticky, sweet and only require 4 ingredients, plus the mini eggs you use to top them!

Marshmallow Rice Krispie Nests are fun to make whether you’re 5 or 50 and they are super quick to make so there’s no excuse not to have a batch ready for Easter Sunday.

  1. Years ago Sanders maid easter eggs they had marsh mellows cream coconut with 3 jelly beans on them.. Do u have anything close to that?? Kids don’t want cereal or anything else just chocolate, coconut, . marsh mellow and jelly beans

  2. Oh yes, chocolate crispie nests are a tradition here even though my lot are all now pretty big (and they are just as messy) – I’ve just been given a bag of veg friendly marshmallows so I’m going to have a go at your recipe, I’ve always fancied marshmallow nests, there’s enough chocolate around already!

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only big kid around here ๐Ÿ˜› let me know how you get on with the veggie marshmallows – I wonder if that will affect them setting? Might even help!
