Chocolate Easter Egg Nests

Here's a fun, quick sweet no-bake cookie treat perfect for Easter. With just 3 ingredients, these Chocolate Easter Egg Nests come together in minutes.

Just melt some dark chocolate (or milk chocolate if you prefer) in a double boiler or the microwave, stir in some Rice Krispies and then spoon the mixture into pretty paper muffin cups, create a little well and fill with Cadbury mini eggs.

What could be simpler? These Chocolate nests are a treat for kids of all ages.

Chocolate Easter Egg Nests Recipe

Ingredients:
  • 6 ounces good-quality dark chocolate, broken or chopped into small pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 4-1/2 cups Rice Krispies
  • 72 mini chocolate eggs (I used Cadbury mini eggs)

Instructions:
Place the chocolate in a microwave safe container. Heat at 50% power for 1 minute Remove and stir well. If the chocolate is not melted, return it to the microwave and continue heating, stopping to stir it every 10 to 20 seconds to avoid scorching. When only small lumps remain, remove and continue to stir until the chocolate is completely melted.

Add the Rice Krispies and stir to coat well with the chocolate.

Divide the mixture evenly among 24 paper baking muffin cups.

Flatten each “nest” a little to make a well in the center.

Fill each cup with 3 Cadbury mini eggs.

Let them set until firm.
