Bird's Nests (Gluten and Top 8 Free)

This Easter I was looking for something quick and easy to make for the kids to eat at our family gathering.  One of the aunts was planning on bringing some Rice Krispie "eggs" filled with jelly beans inside.  Of course, this traditional treat wasn't going to work for my kiddos, so I took that idea and spun it. 

Scrolling through Facebook these past few weeks, I have come across several Easter-y ideas for treats, and I'm sure this idea is a combination of several pictures I have seen.

These bird's nests were really easy to make.  Simply whip up some safe Rice Krispie Treats and place into greased mini muffin tins using buttered hands (I used Earth Balance Soy Free butter).  Make a divot in the middle of the "nest" to create space for the chocolate and jelly beans.  Then pour melted safe chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips with a dab of coconut oil) into the hull of the nest.  Top with safe jelly beans (I used Surf Sweets jelly beans since we are avoiding artificial colors).  Place in refrigerator until set.  Pop out of muffin tin and enjoy! 

An allergy friendly treat that is easy to make.
