  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.

  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.
