Rice Krispie Easter Nests

It’s hard to believe that Easter is this Sunday! It’s most likely due in part to the fact that it’s still only 30 degrees in Chicago – what’s that about??! Anyway. Easter is a phenomenal time of year (most importantly) from a religious perspective, but also from a dessert perspective! If you’ve given up sweets, chocolate, etc for Lent, now is your time to get back in the game. Not to mention, Easter is “home” one of my favorite candies: Whopper Robin Eggs.

Here is a no-bake, kid-friendly recipe to help you celebrate this year!
