Peanut Butter Crunchy Nests and {My Sisters}

My mama used to make these for my sisters and me when we were little.

peanut butter rice krispy nests for easter

Last week when my husband was out of town, I felt very nostalgic making them with my 4-year-old. It sent me into a series of flashbacks, standing on a chair in the kitchen from my childhood.

And I hope that my boys will always share the bonds of tradition and family and familiarity that I share with my sisters.

So, here's to my lovely baby seesters. You're some of my favorite people.

And here's to our wonderful mama, too.

Peanut Butter Crunchies (Nests)

1/2 c. corn syrup
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. peanut butter
2 cups puffed rice cereal
miniature chocolate egg-shaped candies (Robin's Eggs)

Bring syrup and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and add cereal. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Push the candies into the center to create little nests.
