Easter Rice Bubble Nests

I found these Easter Smarties at The Reject Shop recently, I thought the coloured eggs would look really cute nestled into a rice bubble nest.  I’ve made these prior to easter so I can share them with you, but I think it could be a lovely treat to have over easter.

You could decorate the nests with anything really:

  • Mini Easter Eggs
  • Chocolate Easter Egg
  • Strawberry
  • Dried Apricot, to look like a little tart
  • Caramel

Easter Rice Bubble Nests

  • Author: Katrina

Ingredients

Scale
  • 200g white chocolate melts
  • 2 cups Rice Bubbles
  • Smarties Easter Eggs
  • Spray oil, for greasing tin

Instructions

  1. Lightly grease a 24 hole mini muffin tin
  2. Place rice bubbles into large bowl
  3. Microwave the chocolate on medium for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
  4. Ensure that the chocolate is completely melted
  5. Pour the chocolate onto the rice bubbles and stir until all combined
  6. Spoon heaped tablespoon of mixture into muffin tin
  7. Working fast as the mixture will start to set, mould the mixture around the hole to form a basket shape
  8. Add eggs to decorate

Notes

If your baskets have started to harden up, you can melt a little more chocolate and dip the eggs into the chocolate and place in basket. Dipping the chocolate will keep the eggs still in the basket.

We made these twice over Easter 2015.
They turned out really well, very easy for the kids (boys aged 8 & 12) to do. I recommend using extra white choc, melted to keep eggs in place.
Thank you for your great ideas!
