Chex Mix Easter Nests

Since Easter is just around the corner, I decided to combine two of my favorite things: gooey Chex mix and Cadbury mini eggs. Typically you see cute little “nests” made out of chow mein noodles, but I think they taste like cardboard. So I set out to find something that still looked like a nest, but that I could actually swallow voluntarily. I LOVE this delicious Chex mix recipe and it made the perfect little nest for my chocolate.

Chex Mix Easter Nests

Chex Mix:

Combine in a large bowl:

1/2 box of Chex cereal (any variety)

1/2 cup Shredded sweetened coconut

1/2 cup slivered almonds

In a saucepan melt:

5 TBSP of butter

1/2 c. Karo syrup

1/2 c. Sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Bring sauce to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute while you stir it. Remove from the heat and pour over the cereal mixture and toss to coat.

Then I pressed them into muffin tins lined with cupcake wrappers and topped them with Cadbury mini eggs. Luckily, making the 24 we needed for our friends and neighbors still left about 1/2 the mixture for me and Lucy to eat! 🙂IMG_8974

    Thanks Kara – they were super yummy and really simple to put together – best of all they aren’t the cardboard tasting chow mein noodles! 🙂 I’ve got a few boxes of Chex cereal if you need to borrow some to make your own!
