This is one of our favorite snacks! The kids always love it, and it’s super easy to prepare.
Rice Krispies cereal
M&M’s (or Jelly Beans)
Note: to make this recipe peanut/nut allergy-free, simply use the Rice Krispies brand cereal as opposed to a generic, and replace the M&M’s with Jelly Beans!
1. Prepare the Rice Krispies treats as indicated on the box.
2. Once the treats have cooled, cut them as desired and shape into little bird’s nests.
3. Place M&M’s in the center (we use about ten for each nest) and serve!
