Munch a bunch of bird nest!
I wanted to share a really yummy and easy recipe with you all. Ya know I have looked all over blog land and there are some good recipes to try out. However I must say, I still think that this is the best. Well I should say this is my favorite. They go together lickety split.
Don't they look yummy!
3 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup shredded coconut
Mix and bring just to a boil while stirring:
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Remove from heat. Stir in the cereal and coconut. Let it cool, then shape into nest using your fingers.
Fill with jell beans. This should make about 12 or so. You don't want them to big.
That's is! I told you it was easy.
I bags a few and tied with twine for some friends.
I first made this for my oldest son's class when he was in pre-school.
That was twenty years ago. (Oops! I'm really not that old.)
All my kids still like it. I made some last weekend and they were gone in two days!
I hope you enjoy the treat!
Thanks for stopping by!
