Cocoa Krispie Bird's Nest

 Hello  everyone, hope you are having a wonderful day!
These little krispie treat bird's nests are nothing new, but so much fun if you have never made them! Not only are they fun but they are super easy to make :)

I highly encourage you to let your children in on this project because it will bring a smile to their little faces and joy to your heart!

Cocoa Krispie Treat Nests

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- OR -
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Cocoa Krispy cereal

1. In large stockpot melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into a muffin pan coated with cooking spray. Cool, remove from pan, and shape into a nest. Add Whoppers Mini Robin Eggs, jellybeans, or even a Peep birdie inside the nest to give it that authentic feel.
Best if served the same day.

-Use fresh marshmallows.

-1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.
-Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.
-Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container.
- Did you know you can freeze these fun treats? Place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. You can freeze them for up to 6 weeks. To thaw set out each individual treat for about 15 minutes before serving.

Hope you have fun making this recipe in your kitchen this Spring!
