Easter Nests / Haystacks

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MissCatFish

I’m always trying to make recipes just a little healthier for my family. These Haystacks are made with Fiber One Bran Cereal instead of chow mien noodles. These are super easy, so cute, and if you don’t tell your friends and family they won’t even know you gave them their daily dose of fiber in this yummy treat ;o)

The kids loved these. We made 1/2 of batch the way written. The other half with chow mein noodles. Next time we'll just mix the two. The adults loved them also. So cute.
Thanks for posting.
