Rice Krispie treats with coconut, shaped into nests and filled with jelly beans.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 4 cups marshmallows

  • 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

  • jelly beans


Directions

  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies and coconut, stir until thoroughly mixed. On the prepared baking sheet, shape mixture into sixteen 3-inch rounds, making an indentation in the center of each round so that it makes a nest shape. (Wetting your hands before touching this mixture helps prevent sticking). Put the baking sheet in the refrigerator and chill the nests thoroughly. Fill cooled nests with jelly beans.
