PEEPS Crispy Treats Chicks and Nests

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large saucepan melt butter or margarine over low heat. Add in marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add in puffed rice cereal and stir until completely melted.
  2. Allow to cool for two to three minutes. Prepare a sheet of wax paper by spraying lightly with non stick cooking spray.
  3. Scoop out 12 equal portions of crispy treat mixture and form into nest shapes, placing on wax paper. Because crispy treats can be very sticky, it’s helpful to add a bit of non stick cooking spray to your hands before handling. Allow nests to cool and set up.
  4. Add 1-3 drops of green food coloring (depending on desired shade) to your vanilla frosting. Mix well.
  5. Apply frosting to the top of each crispy treat nest.
  6. Add sprinkles, a PEEP and jelly beans to each nest.
  7. Store covered.
