Mini Egg Nests

If you’re like me, Easter snuck up on you this year, despite it being late this April. April’s always a big month for me to remember stuff. First, my brother in law, David, has his birthday. He was born on April 4th, at 4:44 p.m. No really! To say 4 is his lucky number is, I think, and understatement.

Then it’s my Nan’s birthday on the 9th. Then my other brother in law, Jeremy, has his birthday on the 19th. That’s a lot of birthdays to remember to buy gifts for and write cards and make phone calls, people. I’m lucky I remember Easter even happens!

But then, if I’m honest, the grocery store is never going to let me forget, are they? As the Valentine’s Day candy goes on clearance, the Easter candy goes on sale – despite the entire month of March being between them.

I had the idea for these nests in my head throughout the month of March, but didn’t get around to making them for ages. That’s how we happened to go through 3, yes 3! bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs before I actually got around to making them.

Which, people, is just silly. Because it took all of 10 minutes to make these treats. So if you’re scrambling for something to make to take to an Easter Egg hunt tomorrow, head to the store right now. You’ll have these done and the rest of your Saturday free to do whatever you want!

I was very pleased with the taste of Crispix instead of the usual treat-making cereal. It mimicked branches for the nests, and holy WOW did it taste good! Super crunchy and marshmallow-y in one bite. I think I may even make marshmallow treats with Crispix from now on!


 
What are you up to tomorrow? Will you spend the day with family?

These would be super fun as Easter meal place cards. Place each treat in a decorative muffin paper, and then place a card to be held by the Mini Eggs with the person’s name on it. The treat can be moved to the bread plate while you enjoy dinner, and then devoured as dessert!
