Wren’s edible nests

Wren’s guests were wowed by her edible nests, which Grandma Judy made for Wren’s party. She makes these darling treats every year for Easter, but I asked (begged) her to make them for Wren’s birthday party too. She lovingly shared her recipe for the nests too. Here it is!

Wren’s Edible Nests

This recipe makes between 30 and 40 nests, depending on how large you make them.


12 oz chocolate chips

4 1/2 oz peanut butter

10 large shredded wheat biscuits

Bag of jelly beans – enough for 2-3 beans for each nest


Melt together the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave or a double-boiler, if you have one. Meanwhile, break apart the shredded wheat biscuits while they are still in the package then empty into a bowl. Pour the melted chocolate and peanut butter goodness over the shredded wheat and combine. Form into nests with your hands and place the jelly beans in the centers. Form on cookie sheets covered in wax paper then chill in the fridge to retain the shapes. Enjoy!

Thanks, Grandma Judy!
