Happy Easter!

This is how S and I spent the afternoon. Rice Krispie Treat nests.

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter.
Pour one package of large marshmallows into bowl.
Mix together until marshmallows are fully melted.
Pour in 6 cups of Rice Krispies.
Mix well.

Spoon mixture into greased muffin tins. (I put mine in the large tins for oversized muffins; it filled 10 holes.)

Let mixture cool slightly. Then, butter your hands. Using your thumbs, press mixture toward the edges of the muffin tin, making a hole in the center for a "nest." Sprinkle with green cake decorating sugar.

Add a Peep and a few jelly beans to each nest.

Hi, I got to your blog thru the YA books central blog, and have been reading (and enjoying) it for some time. Those nests were very cute!!

Those are sweet. A friend of mine made some nests by tossing chow mein noodles with melted chocolate, forming them into nests, and topping with malted milk ball eggs while still warm. I also wonder if one could make a Peep jello salad. I may try that sometime.
