40 large
marshmallows
6 c
rice krispie cereal
pipe cleaners or fuzzy sticks
1 small
bag of shredded coconut
1/2 bottle
green food coloring
assorted jelly bean candy

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Butter 16 muffin tins and set aside.
2
Melt butter and marshmallows in a large kettle on medium heat until marshmallows are all melted and smooth.
3
Remove mixture from heat and Pour cereal into melted marshmallows and mix until cereal is well coated with the marshmallow.
4
Place about 3 big heaping spoons ( or so )in each muffin tin (with tips of fingers dipped in cold water) press mixture up the sides if the tins , making a well in the center to form a basket shape.
5
Stick pipe cleaners or fuzzy sticks ( located in the craft dept. ; cut in half )stick into rice krispie shell to form a handle; they will stay in once cereal mixture cools and sets , you can also use long licorice sticks for the handles and the whole basket will be edible.

7
Fill a big pinch of green coconut in the well of each for the grass and top with several jelly beans in each basket.
