Rice Krispie Birds Nests

3/4 cup butter
3 10 ounce bag marshmallows (put 4 cups aside!)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 teaspoon coarse salt
11 cups Rice Krispies

1. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray or grease all sides with butter.
2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Slowly brown butter while stirring. It will foam and then turn a rich dark brown. 
3. Turn off stove and add marshmallows (except the 4 cups you set aside) and vanilla. You may see brown flecks while you are mixing and that is ok. Stir until marshmallows are fully melted.
4. Take off the heat and add the Rice Krispies, 4 cups of reserved marshmallows and coarse salt. Mix until rice krispies are evenly coated. Dump Rice Krispies into your prepared pan and spread evenly. Spray your hand with cooking spray before you press so Rice Krispies don't stick to you!

While the Rice Krispie mixture is still warm scoop each kid about a cup of  the mixture on a piece of parchment paper. Spray your kids hands with cooking spray.  Your kids will love making these nests. When kids have finished they can add candy eggs, jelly beans, malt balls or any oval candy to their nests.
