Have been making these every Easter for several years. Everyone loves them and they look so cute at everyones place setting for Easter dinner. I like to tint some coconut green and add that to the nest to look like straw before I add some jelly beans.

I filled my nests with chocolate robin eggs instead of jelly beans and they were adorable. The kids and the adults loved them!

I made this for my grandson's kindergarten class in 2009. At the time I ended up giving recipes to the clerk at the grocery store, the secretary for the elementary school and three teachers. I am making them again for the first grade class and will try and find chocolate chicks to put in them with the jelly bean eggs. they are darling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
