here are a couple of easter treats we made to go along with our celebration!
our family makes these cute little nest cookies every year! they are so yummy and so easy to make!
Barbara's Nest Cookies
1 stink margarine
2 c sugar
1/2 c milk
combine and boil for 1 minute
1/2 c peanut butter
1 1/2 t vanilla
3 c oats
mix together and drop on wax paper
add jelly beans or other eggs shaped candy
we also made these adorable little deviled egg chicks!!!
boil eggs until hard boiled (15 min)
peel and rinse
then cut top 1/3 off to remove yolk
mix yolks as you like and add back into bottom of egg
then put the top on!
i used pepper corns for the eyes (you could also cut pieces of an olive)
and cut a carrot in tiny triangles for the beaks!
NOTE: if you use peppercorns for the eyes you will probably want to remove them before eating! that would be quite a heavy dose of pepper!!!
i just love these adorable little guys!!!!!
thank you all for reading!!!!
