Rice Krispies Robin Egg Nests

Apparently I've started a tradition of making edible nests of some kind for Easter the past couple of years starting with these ones. I also just really love the Whoppers Robin Eggs candy, too. Why is Easter candy so good?? It's easily my favorite holiday candy. Turning everything into an egg shape really just lures me in I guess. 
Anyway, these are so easy to put together and my kids loved making them. I mean what's more fun than eating edible grass and eggs inside a Rice Krispies treat nest. Rice Krispies treats will always have my heart.
If you're looking for the perfect Easter treat for your family then this is it! It's definitely something everyone will love.
