ust my take on a favorite recipe!! There are so many out there but this is the way I like to make them!! When I made this today I yielded 6 large muffin tins, 6 small, and two left over "hand formed" nests. ;) Total of 14 assorted sizes - depends on your pans what you will yield. Cook time is chill time.

    Spoon generous amount of mixture into each cup creating a well in the center as you go.

    Continue until all of mixture is used up.
