Eggcellent Recipes for Easter!
It is time for the joy of Easter! We've got a wonderful treat that you can make with the kids and a ham that everyone will have everyone asking for seconds.


Easter Chocolate Nests

      • 4½ cups mini marshmallows
      • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (½ stick)
      • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
      • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
      • Candy for decorating nests (optional)
      • In large saucepot, heat marshmallows and butter over medium heat 5 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally. Add chocolate chips and stir with wooden spoon until chocolate melts and mixture is well combined. Remove saucepot from heat; stir in oats.
      • Line baking sheet with waxed paper. Using gloves or moist hands, form chocolate-oat mixture into 1½-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet. To form each ball into a nest, place ball in palm of hand; press down on center of ball with fingers to flatten ball and form indentation in the center. Place nests back on baking sheet and cool completely.
      • Transfer nests to airtight container and store at room temperature up to 3 days. Fill nests with candy, if desired, just before serving.
