These are fun for kids to help with. You can do almost any kind of decoration for any occasion.

  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 3 shredded wheat biscuits, crushed
  • jelly beans, red hot candies, gumdrops or any kind of small candy


Place butter in medium bowl. Microwave at high 30 to 45 seconds, or until melted. Add marshmallows, stirring to coat. Microwave at high 30 to 60 seconds, or until marshmallows puff and mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in crushed cereal.

Shape into Easter bird nests and fill with coloured jelly beans; or shape into Christmas wreaths and decorate with red hot candies or melted candy coating; or shape into snowmen and decorate with gumdrops and red hot candies.

I am guessing these are the large shredded wheat biscuits? Not the ones that fit into a teaspoon?

Yes, Laniegirl, these are the the large, bricks if you will, of shredded wheat. If you are making them, have fun!
