  2. Break the Shredded Wheat into small pieces and melt the chocolate and peanut butter on low heat.
  3. Mix the “grass”, “twigs”, and “mud” together and then form three mounds of the mixture on the wax paper.
  4. Shape the mounds into nests and refrigerate until hardened.
  5. Add the chocolate eggs and enjoy!

Little Books for Little Cooks is a monthly feature that focuses on creating some edible fun with your little one.   We will share a fun book to read with your little one along with a cooking activity to do that ties in with the featured book. Sometimes there may be actual cooking involved…and sometimes just fun!
