Tasha (age 8) makes this recipe on her own (the no-cook kind), but I try to give her a hand whenever I'm "allowed" *grin* -- it's good mommy/daughter time.

Easter Nests
Ingredients:
 • 6 oz bakers chocolate or 1 cup chocolate chips
 • 6 cups corn flakes or shredded wheat (crumpled)
 • chocolate chicks, mini eggs or jellybeans to decorate
Directions:
 1.  Melt the chocolate and then mix with cereal. Using a muffin pan and baking cups, put a spoonful of the
     mixture in each cup and then use the spoon to make it roughly the shape of a nest. Put them in the
     fridge for an hour and then decorate with the chocolate chicks, mini eggs or jelly beans.

 2.  One of the easiest ways to produce Easter nests (and the children love doing it) is to buy plain Meringue
     nests, melt chocolate and allow the children to turn the meringues upside down to cover. Really messy
     but lots of fun. Allow to dry and add a painted egg or mini eggs to fill.
