Easter Nests

Today I was "that Mom", healthy breakfast (scrambled eggs with spinach & shredded cheddar blended into them in them, laundry in (bedding from the trailer included), fresh coconut toasted for my craft-ivity(which I forgot about and burnt most of...) beef, bean & avocado quesidillas for lunch (salad for me) , babies napping by 11, play date over for Lu.  At the play date we made egg carton caterpillars (only because I finally remembered to buy pipe cleaner) and Easter egg nests.  What is an Easter egg nest you ask???  Well, pull up a seat, cause frankly my feet are ACHING.


N.B.  My camera SUCKS.   Oh and so do my  photo-taking abilities.   Any suggestions for a new camera?  One that will require very little on my part to make the pictures look good????
 
You will need:

3tbsp butter/margerine
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies cereal ( I used no-name because it was $4 dollars cheaper!)
1 cup toasted coconut
mini eggs, mini marshmallows, foil covered easter eggs, jellybeans etc.

2 muffin tins
nonstick spray
green food coloring

In a large sauce pan melt butter.  When butter is melted, add marshmallows and stir frequently until melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir in rice krispies.

Drop heaping tablespoons full into greased muffin tins and shape into 'nests' (I forgot to take a picture... maybe I wasn't "that Mom" hahaha)

When nests have cooled, decorate:


These taste best the first day, but if you plan on storing, use an air-tight container!  Now, where's my wine......
