As I've stated before, moderation in all things, including nutrition. These little nests are definitely a treat, but one of them is plenty for me. Deprivation is very counter-productive, especially around the holidays. A little goes a looooong way.
The best part of these treats is that they are filled with fiber, about 3 grams of fiber per nest. Not too shabby for a treat! Each nest is 114 calories.
This time I made my nests two different ways. First, I spooned the mixture in tablespoonful scoops onto waxed paper lined cookie sheets (this is how my mom did it). I also tried putting the mixture in these silicone muffin cups (spray with a little cooking spray).
Press 3 mini jelly beans in center of nests.
Refrigerate and chill at least 1-2 hours. These last in the fridge for several days.
These nests were in the silicon muffin cups. They turned out pretty cute!
The originals look more like bird's nests (or piles of manure...hehe). I think I like the originals better. Which nests do you like better?
