I think you are asking for a mess, especially if it gets too warm.  What about a seed packet? That’s super springy to me!

Maybe you could malted milk eggs after easter? They are yummy, will be fresher since they are in season, and look like bird’s eggs. I’d put them in a little bag or box.

I think that, while this idea is cute, it is way overkill and a lot of work that may not be eaten or appreciated. I like the idea of the malted chocolate eggs, and it still ties in with your theme!

@vicozzie:  Birds nests can be really easy to make. I think the most common way I have seen them is with coconut. Here is a recipe that I just pulled off the internet. Just google ‘edible birds nests’ and you will get a ton of results. If you aren’t sure about the “eggs” you found on the internet check out Jelly Belly. They look like birds eggs and would fit your theme perfectly. To prevent the birds nests from potentially melting put them in the fridge and pull them out as the last thing to go on your tables. 

I think this is a great idea and would tie into your wedding. I say go for it!


3 c. Rice Krispies
1 c. coconut, shredded
1/3 c. light corn syrup
1/2 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla


Bring to a boil while stirring: Corn syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter and vanilla. Remove from heat. Stir in the Rice Krispies and the coconut. Let cool, then shape into bird nests. Fill with jelly beans.
