Reviews for Bird's Nest Snacks
"These snacks are super cute, easy to make, and taste really good. My kids love the cute factor and it is a "kid friendly" recipe for them to help make. When I'm in a hurry I make the nest mixture and just roll it into balls for a pop in your mouth snack."
"These not only look beautiful for Easter but they really tast good as well!"
