Mini Egg Nests ~ Kid's Snack
Hello friends! Sorry I haven't blogged in so long. It it Spencer's Spring Break this week and I have been enjoying the extra time we have together.
I made these for Spencer's class before the break. I am such a sucker for cuteness. Plus these are fun and easy to make. While not the healthiest of snacks, they aren't packed with tons of sugar either. The kids can help too!
1 10 oz. package of marshmallows (I used strawberry flavored)
1/4 cup of butter
8-9 cups of Crispix cereal
1 package of mini eggs (I used Whopper eggs)
Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add marshmallows, stirring as you add them. Stir constantly until marshmallows are melted and creamy. Remove from heat. Add cereal and immediately stir to coat completely.
Line standard size muffin tin with cupcake liners. Scoop marshmallow mixture into each cup and mold cereal to the sides, leaving an indentation in the middle. Place 3 mini eggs in the middle of each cup (while the centers are still warm). As the mixture cools, the eggs will stick to them to stay in place.
Store in tightly sealed container at room temperature.
