Bird Nest treats

6 cups Rice Krispies
4 cups colored marshmallows (the fruity marshmallows give the nests a darker color)
1 tsp vanilla
4 T butter
1/2 Cup shredded coconut
green food coloring
Jelly beans
frosting (optional)

1.Make Rice Krispies treats as directed on box.
2. Lightly butter your hands.
3 Pinch out a handful of the prepared Rice Krispies treats, roll in a ball, and place into cupcake wrappers.
4 Form ball into a "bird nest" formation.

5 While Rice Krispies nests are cooling, dye the coconut.
6 Place coconut in a bowl and add green food color-shake until coated well.

7. I put a little frosting to hold the coconut but not something that you need to do. 
8 Place green coconut into nest.

9 Place 3-4 jellybeans into each nest.
