Chocolate Krispies Easter Nests are ideal to make with Children
Chocolate Krispies are fun to make and easy enough for children to make with only a little supervision needed when melting the chocolate. Then let them loose with the decorations.
How to make Chocolate Krispies Easter Nests
Melt the Chocolate
Melt the chocolate in a large bowl over a pan of simmer water.
What kind of chocolate should I use?
I use half and half dark (semi-sweet) chocolate and milk chocolate for this recipe as I like a slightly less sweet taste
Use all dark chocolate or all milk chocolate if that is what you prefer. Children often prefer milk chocolate
Add the Rice Krispies cereal to the chocolate
Weigh the rice krispies cereal, then add it to the melted chocolate and stir until all the rice kristpies are covered in chocolate.
Apologies for the green tinge to the photograph. Note to self: don’t use a green bowl in photographs!
Spoon into paper cases
Spoon the chocolate and cereal mixture into paper muffin or cupcake cases and decorate with the candy covered mini eggs.
Chill in the refrigerator until set.
Serve the Chocolate Krispies Easter Nests in a decorated Easter Basket with pretty eggs and little fluffy yellow chicks.
Or serve on a pretty plate or bowl with Easter decorations.
