  • Green food coloring paste
  • 2 1/2 cups crumbled shredded whole wheat cereal biscuits
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange oil flavoring (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Stir together melted coating and desired amount of food coloring paste; add cereal and, if desired, orange oil flavoring, stirring to combine.

  2. Drop mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls onto wax paper; shape each spoonful into a bird's nest. Gently make a small indentation in center of each nest; fill with 3 jelly beans. Let dry completely.
