"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." — Valerie Lynne

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.
These are so cute. My kids and I made them for our family's Easter dinner. Everyone thought they were adorable; but no one ate them. They look a lot better than they taste which was alright because I made them more for their appearance anyway.
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!
These tasted much better than I expected. On my second batch, though, I added more peanut butter and corn syrup so they would stay together easier.
These were a hit! In addition to being adorable, they actually TASTE good too! Took them to Easter dinner and they were "awww'd" over and gobbled up. I too added some marshmallow creme and also green food coloring, and used a muffin pan to shape them. Super easy and quick to whip up. I would do these again...
These are pretty good. I added some marshmellows to help them stick as well. I found the peanut butter to be too over-powering, and I like green nests. So I'll probably try a different recipe next time, and hand most of these out to the neighbors.
