For the Rice Krispie Nests:

  • 2 cups Rice Krispies (50 grams)
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

For the Filling:

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp double cream
  • 1 packet mini chocolate eggs


  • Grease the muffin cups of a 9 piece muffin holder.
  • Measure out 2 cups or 50 grams of Rice Krispies and set them aside in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the peanut butter and honey to a small saucepan. Warm over a very low heat, stirring until everything is just melted and smooth.
  • Pour the peanut butter and honey mixture into the mixing bowl with the Rice Krispies. Stir it gently until everything is well combined.
  • Straight away, spoon the mixture into the muffin cups. Use your fingers or the back of a spoon, to press down and compact the mixture into a nest shape with a dip in the middle.
  • Chill your Rice Krispie nests in the fridge for several hours or until set.
  • For the filling melt the ½ cup of peanut butter with the double cream.
  • Pour 1 teaspoon into each of the chilled nests, and push the chocolate mini eggs into the sticky mixture.
  • Return your Easter egg nests to the fridge for another half hour so that the filling can set.
