Easter is one of my favorite holidays and every year I usually make a kids dessert. This year I have decided to do something “Egg-stra”. I am making a two-in-one dessert: decorated REESE’S Peanut Butter Eggs and rice cereal nests. Both are super simple and adorable.
Decorating the eggs is so much fun for everyone. Think of decorating Christmas cookies, but on delicious REESE’S Eggs! For this, all you need is REESE’S Eggs and icing. I bought everything I needed at Walmart and you can even use Walmart Grocery Pickup.
The kids really liked to decorate and wound up eating a lot more of the icing than I anticipated! Lol! Having a variety of colors is fun too! You could even add sprinkles or something else to make it even more Sp-egg-tacular!
For the rice cereal nests you need:
3 cups Rice Cereal
2 ½ cups mini marshmallows
2 TBSP Butter
Melt the butter in a pot on medium-low heat.
Once melted, add the marshmallows. Stir, stir, stir. Once the marshmallows have melted in, remove from heat and add your rice cereal. Stir it in. Let it cool off for about 3-4 minutes.
Get a muffin tin and spray with cooking spray so they won’t get stuck. Fill the tins and press down in the middle- making a nest shape. Let them cool to set up completely.
After they are fully cooled, use a small spatula to pop them out. Place on a decorative plate and add the decorated REESE’S Eggs to the middle!! Super cute and fun. The kids loved these. They were a big hit!
You could even put Cadbury Eggs inside the nests or use green food coloring to make the nest green! There are some fun ideas to make it different ways!
We are a family who LOVES peanut butter, so using our favorite REESE’S Peanut Butter Eggs was a no-brainer.
This recipe is easy and fun to get the kids involved too! They all love to decorate the eggs,then lick off all the icing and eat the eggs!
Tell me- do you make a special Easter dessert?!
