Confetti eggs. Jelly beans. Easter Baskets. It’s a fun time this week for the family to enjoy yummy goodies while being thankful for their blessings. These nifty Easter egg nests are made with rice krispies. The gooey, marshmallow mixture makes a perfect dessert to take to the park for your family picnic. Best of all, they are easy to make and easier on the family budget. Plus, you can get your children involved in helping to shape them and fill them with their favorite Easter candies. For an extra sugar rush, you can add green colored shredded coconut or drizzle melted chocolate on the nests before adding the candies.
1/4 cup butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows (about 40 regular sized marshmallows)
5 cupsKellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
1 package Jelly beans or other small egg-shaped candies
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Quickly add the cereal. Stir until well incorporated.
3. With clean hands and/or using a spoon, scoop the mixture into a mini-muffin pan. Shape the mixture by pressing the cereal in the tin. Then using your thumb, or the end of a wooden spoon, make an indentation for the “eggs” to nest in. Cool. Remove from pans.
4. Fill cooled nests with jelly beans or chocolate eggs. You can make the nests two days ahead and then just wrap with plastic and keep them in your refrigerator until ready to use. They can lose their shape if your kitchen is too warm or has an awesome south-facing window.
Yields 48 little nests

The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...
Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).
Adulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
