Make cookies that look like bird nests! Pretty for school spring celebrations or Easter. You can use egg-shaped candies in lieu of the jellybeans, too.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the crispy rice cereal and coconut. In a large saucepan, combine corn syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla. Cook over medium heat stirring frequently until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in the coconut and cereal mixture until it is well coated. Set the mixture aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. Form the mixture into balls, then make an indention in the center so that they look like little bird nests. Place two or three jelly beans into each nest.

I read the comments about the nest not sticking together. I added one cup of marshmallows and melted w/ the rest of the ingrediants. Also I toasted the coconut - Yum! I put paper muffin cups into a muffin pan. I have a large scoop from Pampered Chef - this made for the perfect measure for these nest. I then used my tart shaper to make the nest shape.

My teacher made this for our bakesale, but instead of jelly beans she used miniature candy eggs. It's cute and tastes great either way!

I added the cup of marshmallows as suggested by another reviewer. They stuck together very well. I also scooped them by the spoonful into a muffin pan so they would hold their shape. I let them cool for 45 min. and popped them out gently with a fork. They taste great!
