INGREDIENTS

  • 6 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 3 TBS Butter

  • 10 oz bag Marshmallows or 4 cups of Mini Marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut.
  • Assorted food colors

  • Assorted Jelly Bellies or malted eggs or other small Easter candies

  • Whipped Marshmallow
  • Box of flat bottomed cones

  • OTHER ITEMS

  • Wooden Spoon to stir
  • Waxed Paper or Pam cooking spray
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Frosting or Icing (optional)
  • STEPS

    1. Tint coconut by placing 1/2 cup coconut into a small ziplock bag. In a very small dish put a 1/4 tsp water with one drop of dye. Add a second drop for darker tint. Add to ziplock and shake until coconut is tinted.
    2. Melt margarine or butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows.
    3. When marshmallows are almost completely melted, add a drop of food coloring into melted marshmallows. Add a second drop if a darker color is desired. Remove from heat when marshmallows are completely melted.
    4. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
    5. Shape mixture into a ball. Mixture will make about 8 balls. (Adult only)
    6. Place on top of each cone and press gently.
    7. Frost the treats with about 2 tsp whipped marshmallow on the top and add small candies of your choice.

    8. Drop a pinch of tinted coconut onto top where whipped marshmallow is showing.

    TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

  • Note Let Rice Krispies cool for about 30 seconds to one minute before handling. If you wait too long it will harden and be difficult to shape.

  • Spray hands with Pam or put a little butter on your fingers when shaping the nests.
  • For multiple colors, you might want to halve the recipe. 1/2 recipe will yield about 4 cones with extra for cutting with cookie cutters. If you cut the recipe in half, stir continuously so marshmallows and butter don't scorch.
