Cocoa Pebbles™ Cereal Spring Nests


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 bag (10.5 ounces) miniature marshmallows
  • 1.5 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 6 cups Cocoa PEBBLES™ Cereal
  • 1 bag of mini egg-shaped candy
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted (to adhere the eggs into the nest)


  1. Over medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Add the mini marshmallows and cook until they are completely melted, stirring constantly to incorporate the melted butter. Remove from heat.
  2. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract to the marshmallow mixture and stir to incorporate.
  3. Add 6 cups of Cocoa PEBBLES™ Cereal and mix well to coat the cereal.
  4. With a spoon, transfer the mixture into a silicone muffin pan and press into the mold to make the birds’ nests. Be sure to press a dent in the center where the candy eggs will go.
  5. Allow the nest to sit in the mold for about 1-2 minutes to ensure the shape will hold, then pop out of the mold and onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  6. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave at 15-20 second intervals, stirring between each interval to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn.
  7. Add about a half-teaspoon of chocolate to the middle of the nest and press the mini egg-shaped candy into the chocolate to adhere them to the nest.
  8. Allow the nests to dry at least 30 minutes before serving.
