Roast lamb is a traditional Easter meal. Now I know what you are thinking, that’s not a picture of a lamb dinner up there, but there is a connection. As a kid, my mom had a cast iron cake pans, that when put together made a three-dimensional lamb. However, even when we were successful in getting the cake out of the pan; we still had trouble getting it to stand up. So she solved that problem by using it as a mold for rice crispy treats; which is why I often associate the Easter with the kids treat.
Therefore, this Easter I was reminded of the Tony the Tiger Bites I shared last winter; and ways to make it more spring-like. I can’t take full credit for this innovation, just for making it less healthy; as I’ve seen recipes on the internet of uses for spaghetti squash.
Below is what you will need and you can find the recipe here. I usually use a little bit less frosted flakes than the recipe calls for, so just mix in the cereal until it gets to a consistency you like.
Once the mixture is ready (and work quickly while it is warm), spoon it into cupcake liners to form a nest and top with candy-coated chocolate eggs.
Even if you don’t plan on making Easter nests, I did find putting the mix into cupcake liners easier than cutting portions out of a tray.
