Edible Easter Nests

We made these last night for Enrichment: Recipe Club. I thought they were cute and wanted to share. I think they'd be fun to make with kids, or give to kids. They are pretty much like rice krispy treats but using All Bran instead. Don't let that scare you! They taste super good because they are drenched with marhmallows and butter. :)

Little Nests:
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup All-Bran cereal
1 small package mini chocolate Cadburry egss

In a small saucepan, melt butter or margarine over low heat. Add miniature marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat; add cereal and stir just until coated. When cool enough to handle, form into eight little nests. Place on waxed paper. After about 1 hour, press in center of each nest to form indention. Place three robin eggs in center of each nest. Place on a 3 or 4 inch doily and use as place cards or favors. Or just eat and enjoy! Makes 8 nests.
