Chocolate nests with tiny eggs

Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies…(Nests!)

2 Cups sugar

**Less Than~1/2 Cup Cocoa (Nests turn out a lighter color if you use a little less than 1/2 cup!)

1 Stick butter (8 Tablespoons)

1/2 Cup milk

1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla

3 Cups Oats (Add a hand-full more if the consistency is too runny.)

3/4 Cups Peanut Butter

**2 Palm-fulls of Butterscotch Chips** (you can omit this…but it’s yummy!)

Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk over medium heat.

When mixture starts a roiling boil, stir and boil for one full minute.

Remove from heat…

Stir in: vanilla, oats, peanut butter, and butterscotch chips.

***Complete one nest and egg cookie at a time***

On wax paper…

Use an ice-cream scoop to make small balls and shape carefully and quickly into little nests.

Add 2 or 3 tiny Robin Eggs…press to secure the eggs (you will need 1 bag of tiny Robin eggs candy.)

** You can find the original recipe at All Things Heart and Home.
