Tips and Suggestions

Size-Wise: These tasty treats are perfect for feeding a crowd of kids on Easter. Prepare the cereal shells, then let each child fill their shell with the coconut and candies themselves.

Variation: Omit candies. Place a small scoop of your favorite ice cream in each nest; drizzle with strawberry or pineapple dessert topping.

Special Extra: For a touch of color, tint the coconut before adding to nests. Place coconut in large resealable plastic bag. Add about 9 drops food coloring; seal bag. Massage coconut in bag until color is evenly distributed.

How to Shape Nests: Lightly grease bottom of small jar, such as a spice jar. Use to press the cereal mixture into the muffin cups.

How to Prevent Sticking: Lightly spray hands with cooking spray to prevent cereal mixture from sticking to your hands when pressing cereal mixture into muffin cups. To shape nests, lightly grease bottom of small jar, such as a spice jar. Use to press the cereal mixture into the muffin cups.
