  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups corn flakes
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • toasted coconut optional


  • Measure corn flakes into a large bowl.
  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir continuously until completely melted.
  • Pour melted marshmallows into the large bowl with the corn flakes. Stir until well coated.
  • Spoon cornflake and marshmallow mixture into mini muffin cups and shape them into nests.
  • Add Cadbury Mini Eggs and toasted coconut (if using) to the top of each nest.


Spray your hands with a little bit of cooking spray to keep cornflake nests from sticking to you while you shape them.
