I have made these little treats for the past couple of years and both adults and children enjoy them. The Easter Egg nests are edible party favors or place holders at the Spring Easter table.
You could also use these for parties at school instead of cupcakes or as a teacher or neighbor treat.
They are really easy to make, and the kids will enjoy filling the nests with the treats. However, the adult might want to stick to the nest building because it is pretty sticky and the kids might eat all the nest building mixture!
