Lightly grease the cups of a muffin pan with oil or oil spray.
Add the butter to a large pan and melt over a medium/low heat.
Add the marshmallow and stir until it’s all melted.
Remove the pan from the heat, pour in the rice krispies and stir until the cereal is completely coated.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan and form into a nest shape by making an indentation in the middle. A lightly buttered or oiled spoon makes it much easier!
Allow to cool completely in the pan before removing.
To decorate, make a fairly thick icing by mixing the powdered sugar with 2 teaspoons of water (add more water or icing sugar as necessary to make a thick paste) and add a few drops of green food colouring if desired.
Spoon a little icing into the rice krispie nests and place in a few mini eggs. Add a few sprinkles.
Make sure the muffin tin is greased fully.The well in the nest must be formed when the rice crispy treats are still warm. You can do this with your fingers or by using a lightly oiled or buttered spoon.The treats must cool completely before removing from the muffin tin.
