Oooh I like the riceKrispie idea. The kids will have a great time making these. They are really a crafty lot. My two year old Journey loves to paint and decorate things. She will love this idea.

A couple of drops of green food coloring makes them look like grass nests!!

Karen I tried this recipe for our Easter dinner for the grandkids and everyone absolutely loved them and it was so easy. I had to use Dots instead of jelly beans but that worked ok. Thanks for the great little recipe.
