peanut butter birds nests.

soo... my mom decided to get all creative and stuff for Easter. Therefore, we made these adorable little birds nests. and she really wanted to put it on pinterest (seriously, not joking), so here it is!

We used my mom's peanut butter rice crispy recipe (a million times better than regular rice crispy treats) and added in a few broken pretzel sticks.

First, you'll need these ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 cup karo syrup
1 cup peanut butter
lots of rice crispies cereal
pretzel sticks

Add together the sugar, karo, and peanut butter in a  large pan on the stove.

turn on the heat to melt it all together.

 (this is an inbetween picture.) stir it a little bit.

until it looks like this:

don't let it get all the way to boiling. at this point, take it off the heat, and add rice crispies until it's the consistency you like it. also stir in a few broken pretzel sticks so that it looks more bird-nest-like.

using an large ice cream scooper, put mixture on wax paper, and press down the inside to form the nest. do this quickly, because the mixture drys pretty fast.

we broke more pretzels and stuck them on the outside of the nests, also.

let them cook for a few minutes, then add a couple Whoppers Robins Eggs.

then add Peeps!

and there you go! adorable, edible nests!

One batch made 13 nests, but that would vary depending on your ice cream scoop size!
