Rice Krispies Baby Bird Nest Treats

My boys have helped make a ton of fun desserts in our house. In fact…it’s in the hundreds! They have fun with all of them, but there is a different kind of excitement from them when I pull out the Rice Krispies & say to them that we are going to create with Rice Krispies Treats! They absolutely love Rice Krispies Treats!

Rice Krispies has a awesome Pinterest page with a ton of fun food ideas. We checked out all of them & thought that the Robin Nests looked fun & easy for kids to create themselves. We turned ours into Rice Krispies Baby Bird Nest Treats so this is our take on their popular idea. We had so much fun making these & I think my boys did a awesome job on their baby bird nest treats! They rated this treat a big 10!!

The edible grass, I have never seen this before, who make it and is it coconut?

Walmart sells it during Easter. I buy it every year.
