Peanut Butter Cream Filled Rice Krispy Nests with mini Cadbury Eggs

This is a post from years ago that we’ve updated to be even better. We took those chinese noodle nests every blogger posts about and made them our own by switching to rice krispy cereal and filling them with a peanut butter cream, much like fudge. We hope you love our peanut butter cream filled mini cadbury egg rice krispy nests as much as we do.

Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Nests but we filled them with peanut butter cream too and then stuffed them with mini cadbury eggs. SO GOOD!

And we hope you try saying that name 5 times fast, because good mercy it’s a mouthful.

Now, let’s check out our blast from the past and what we had to say about these years and years ago…

Mini peanut butter rice krispy treats full of peanut butter cream and mini cadbury eggs

A few days before Easter our daughter was really bored and so to pass the time I made up a little Easter treat for her to make. She had so much fun making these Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Nests. We made the nests by hand the first time, but now we form them in a muffin tin and then press down the centers to make them a little bit more uniform in size and shape. She was so proud of making them herself that we didn’t care if some of them were a little lopsided. I can’t believe how much joy can come from such a simple little activity. Plus, who doesn’t love a peanut butter rice krispy treat??

We filled these with a simple peanut butter cream for the cadbury mini eggs to be nestled into. We tried them with and without it and while I tend to like things simple and classic, this new version with the cream is FANTASTIC. I definitely wouldn’t skip it unless you absolutely have to.


These are so much better than the Chinese noodle nests! Peanut butter rice krispies filled with peanut butter cream!
