Food-a-licious Friday: Gluten Free Bird Nest Snacks

Hello there and Happy Friday, friends!

I have been taking a bit of a break from blogging the last couple of weeks with my daughter’s birthday and our trip to Utah. I’m happy to be back in business and am excited to share a couple of the Easter and spring projects I have been working on! Today I am going to share the snack I made with my preschool chefs during our cooking class this week. This month our recipes are spring themed, so we made Gluten Free Bird Nest Snacks to celebrate spring!

The kiddos had so much fun making these snacks and they were such a tasty treat too! Are you ready to make some with your kids?

You will need:

  • gluten free Chex cereal
  • marshmallows
  • coconut oil
  • gluten free jelly beans (or another candy that’s egg shaped)

In a hot pot on the stove, melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 2 cups of marshmallows, stirring them together often. Pour 3 cups of Chex into a mixing bowl. Once marshmallows and coconut oil are melted together, pour it over the cereal and carefully fold into eachother until all of the cereal is coated with marshmallow. Have the kids rub their hands with coconut oil and the inside of a cupcake tin to prevent the marshmallow from sticking to everything. Grab handfuls of Chex/marshmallow mix and place into the cupcake pan, pressing down in the center to make it look more like a next. Let the nests sit in the cupcake pan for about 5 minutes to set up. Remove the ‘nests’ and add candy eggs to them. EAT!

We also read a book about spring and colored a picture about spring. SO much fun celebrating spring with a fun snack!

Thanks for stopping by today, friends! I will see you back here tomorrow!
