No Bake Easter Treats

Easter Egg Nests

I remember when I was 8 we lived next door to 2 kids who were only allowed to eat healthy foods like wholemeal bread, dried fruit, lentils and carob for chocolate. They also had a teeny tiny black and white television, and they were not allowed to watch Sons and Daughters. Oh the travesty!! I thought these kids were so sad and deprived, and that their mother must have been a witch who grew up in a cult.

The mother did sell Amway, so that is very much a possibility.

I’m sure that’s how my kids feel, and I know they were a little suspicious that they were going to miss out on all the usual Easter treats thanks to our healthier way of living. So I surprised them yesterday and made these gorgeous little nests for Easter next week. They didn’t photograph too well, but they are so cute and yummy mix of sweet and salty.

I even let them have one each after school.
