Chocolate Rice Krispie Easter Nests

Chocolate rice krispie Easter nests, the sweetest easy Easter treats for kids.

What a fun way of using up chocolate Easter eggs, and keeping everyone entertained. Only 5 ingredients needed, just try not to eat too many chocolate eggs at once, as the Easter menu can be rather generous.

The countdown for Easter has started! How exciting! If you are not quite sure what to do for Easter, no need to panic yet, there is still plenty of time left to gather ideas for your big day meal and activities for little ones.

It is such a special time of the year, when we get to have the whole family celebrating with us. And then you have the lovely Spring weather, the joy, the laughter. Happy times!!!

I do get homesick though when l don’t have the chance to travel to Romania to see my parents and relatives. Although l have a family of my own now, my lovely husband and baby girls, l always long to spend special occasions in the countryside with everybody else and have the whole family reunited.

It is also because over there, traditions are still alive and it’s the little things that make you happy. Like painting eggs red, cooking and baking, attending the church services, getting the house and garden all nice and clean, and so much more.

Isn’t it extraordinary how food can help make these moments special? Since l mentioned the tradition of painting eggs red, l have this post about how to do it without artificial colour: Naturally-dyed Easter eggs.

We can’t think of Easter without the dyed eggs, and every single household in the country will have them on the table. There are so many other dishes that we usually enjoy having on that day, but this will be covered in a separate post, as there is so much to write about.

To make these pretty nests, you can use simple rice krispies instead of the chocolate ones. Since the chocolate krispies and quite sweet anyway, l opted for dark chocolate, although milk chocolate can be used instead.
