Nest corn Flake Treats

SaveHello and welcome to Tealmama!  This week I’m sharing a family recipe for nest cornflake treats.  You’ll see several adaptations to this treat because it’s a must at all of our family gatherings. 🙂

The recipe is similar to rice krispy treats, but somehow corn flakes make a world of difference in flavor.

Recipe Instructions & Tips

I have to warn you — these treats are super sticky and messy to make.  But it’s so worth it.  🙂  In a large bowl, add 6 cups of marshmallows and 1/2 cup butter.  Slicing the butter allows it to melt a little easier.

Melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave in small increments, stirring frequently until smooth and all the butter is melted.

Fold 7 cups of corn flakes into the marshmallow mixture.

On top of wax paper and with greased hands or a spoon, press the cornflake mixture firmly into circle cookie cutter.  You can use butter, spray or shortening to grease your hands.  I like the spoon option better, but you still have to grease the spoon when it gets too sticky.  And greasing the cookie cutter will help as well. Then use a spoon to form the nest.

Carefully lift the cookie cutter and repeat.  The recipe should make about  18-20 treats.  Depending on the size of your cookie cutter. Cornflakes can be a little harder to work with than rice krispies.

Add your Whoppers Robin Egg candy.
