Easter Rice Crispy Treats: Chocolate-Dipped Eggs & Nests
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: about 24 treats
  1. Place the marshmallows and buttery spread in a large pot. Melt over low heat until melted, stirring often.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the cereal until well-coated.
  3. Hand shape the cereal mixture into nests, and shape into eggs using a plastic Easter egg. The eggs that open lengthwise work best.
  4. Let cool.
  5. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening together.
  6. Dip part or all of each egg into the chocolate, then into the sprinkles.
  7. Place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
  8. For the nests, either dip the entire nest into the chocolate or brush chocolate onto the top of the nest with a pasty brush.
  9. Top the nests with sprinkles, coconut, jelly beans, and/or gumballs.
  10. To make faces on the gumball chicks, use the food safe marker.
  11. Chill all of the Easter rice crispy treats in the freezer for 20 minutes to set the chocolate.
  12. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
