Rice Krispie Treat Tips & Substitutions:
- Can swap out for almost any cereal, to make the treats more festive!
- Add food coloring to the marshmallow mix to change the colors for a different holiday.
- Add vanilla or an extract (example: maple, cinnamon, etc.) to get an extra layer of flavor.
- You can use coconut oil instead of butter – the flavor is a bit too much for me, but others enjoy it.
- Store treats at ROOM TEMPERATURE in an air tight container. Putting them in the fridge can make them hard.
- Use different flavors of marshmallows, I see so many varieties that can vary seasonally.
- Feel free to use the candy of choice inside the nests! I used robin’s eggs here because it’s what I had on hand, but jelly beans, m&m’s, skittles, etc. would also work.
- PEEPS would also be ADORABLE sitting in the nests!
- Don’t like coconut? Often stores have edible Easter grass available during the season OR use frosting!
