Three Birds Nest Cornflake Treats with Robin Egg Candies

Birds Nest Corn Flake Easter Treats

Adorable no-bake treats perfect for Easter—corn flake cookies shaped into nests and topped with robin egg candies.

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 18 - 20 1x


Units Scale
  • 6 cups miniature marshmallows (10 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 7 cups corn flakes
  • Mini whoppers robin eggs


  1. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.
  2. Add mini marshmallows to a large microwave bowl.
  3. Add sliced butter to the marshmallows.
  4. Melt in the microwave in small increments, frequently stirring until smooth and all the butter is melted.
  5. Fold corn flakes into the marshmallow mixture, stir gently until evenly coated.
  6. Press about 1/3 cup cornflake mixture firmly into a circle-shaped cookie cutter. Press with a spoon to create the nest.
  7. Carefully lift the cookie cutter.
  8. Repeat until all of the corn flake mixture is gone.
  9. Top each nest with 3 mini Whopper Robin Eggs.
  10. Allow to set for 20 to 30 minutes. Placing them in the freezer will help speed this up.
  11. Store in an airtight container until you are ready to serve.  Enjoy!


  • Greasing your hands with baking spray or butter will help prevent the marshmallow from sticking to your hands while forming.
  • Use about 1/3 cup corn flake mixture in each nest.
  • We use a 2.5″ round cookie cutter.
