Oh!  I love it when I set out to make a treat and the end result is even cuter than what I had imagined!  These Spring/Easter themed bird nest treats are as delicious as they are fun. Kids can definitely help to make these and the process is very simple.

Excited to share this one and to add it to our Easter content collection.

Hack: I actually used pre-packaged Rice Krispies Treats for this snack! While I absolutely love my own homemade Krispies treats, using the pre-packaged version is SUCH a huge timesaver. So for that reason alone, I recommend using them for this dessert.

  • Repeat this step with all of your Rice Krispies Treats.

  • Melt your chocolate melts in a dish according to the package instructions. I typically melt them at 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring in between intervals.
  • Dip one side of each treat into the chocolate, coating the side completely.

  • Sprinkle each treat with your seasonal sprinkles. At this point I put all of my treats on a plate and stuck them in the fridge for about 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
