This year's surprise Easter treat. I saw these at Angry Chicken and thought they'd be great for us since they're so easy and we just happened to have a bunch of Shredded Wheat cereal and chocolate chips around. I made ours in baking cups, to keep the size relatively small and to help form the nest, and topped them with Cadbury Mini Eggs. They firmed up quickly in the fridge. If you eat as much shredded wheat as we did this week, you don't even have to crush it up, just use the huge amount of crumbs at the bottom of the bags.
Below are last year's nests. Rather, coconut-grass-topped cupcakes. Carrot cake, of course.
My daughter's birthday is so close to Easter, these were actually her birthday treats. We dyed eggs at her little party, too. This year, a pinata is on the menu. More to come on that in a couple weeks!
