When my sons were little, we started making Jelly Bean Nests at Easter and it quickly became a much-loved tradition in our family. Some years I made them with the boys. Other years their dad or grandparents commandeered the kitchen. When the boys were 7 and 10, they were making them on their own. This kid-friendly recipe is easy to follow, fun to make, and oh-so-yummy to eat.
Let's get going!
2. Crumble 2 wheat biscuits in a bowl with your fingers. Mix in 1/4 cup coconut and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Pour in 1/4 cup melted margarine. Stir.
3. Line 6 muffin cups with pieces of tin foil.
4. Press the shredded wheat mixture on the bottoms and up the sides of the foil-lined cups.
6. Gently peel the foil off the nest. Fill with jelly beans.
7. To make your jelly bean nest extra yummy, top it with some yogurt. My sons loved this -- sweet, crunchy, and refreshing. Yum!
