Surprise Your Bunnies with Butterscotch Birds Nest Cookies This Easter

Easter is almost here and that means that I’m planning a weekend menu full of tasty spring dishes and sweet treats for my little bunnies!

I love quick and easy treats that are easy to customize and that’s why I decided to create a variation of a tasty-looking Chocolate Macaroon Nests recipe on the Kraft Canada What’s Cooking website that I knew my boys would love.

To suit my boys’ tastes, I switched the recipe up to make these Butterscotch Birds Nest Cookies for them!

These Birds Nest Cookies were so easy, and the only changes I made to the original recipe were to replace chocolate pudding with butterscotch and jellybeans with Cadbury Mini Eggs.

That way, my boys got the butterscotch flavour they both enjoy and also still got a little chocolate treat too!

I also liked how realistic these Birds Nest Cookies look made in the butterscotch colour! But the nice thing about this recipe is that it can be made with any flavour of pudding for a different look and taste!
