Pretty birds nests

Here's another post about what you see versus reality, or the truth behind the picture/photo. I have written here and (somewhere else...can't find it), about the reality of my days.
The kids and I spent a great deal of time in the kitchen, but let's be honest, sometimes things need to get done faster than fast and I don't have time to wash grimy hands, suit up kids (aprons), gather ingredients, answer million times over about what this or that ingredient is for, have someone sneeze, cough, sneeze some more in the food, and etc etc etc.

Tuesday was one of those days. I was in the middle of making some  pretty birds nests, while the kiddies played. I was feeling good about questions, sneezing, nose-picking, and you get the pic. Then I wandered off, mid-creation, and I got distracted doing what I actually do when I'm not doing fancy schmancy stuff and blogging about it- changing diapers.
When I got back to the kitchen I saw my creation ruined. If I were a serious blogger, I would NEVER show such monstrosity, would I? I would be a perfect little Martha Stewart, and do it all again, so that I could get the perfect Pinterest-worthy shot, that would feature the most heavenly birds nest treats, and readers near and far would run out and get theirs. Alas, I am so not a serious blogger. What I am is a childcare provider. This ladies and gents in my reality more times than not.

And 'cause you can never really destroy beauty, I think smushed or not, these little nests are still wonderful. Don't you?

What you need:
Gluten-free brownie bites (they are not dairy-free) *frozen*
sweetened shredded coconut flakes
chocolate mini eggs

gently press the back of a teaspoon in the middle of the "nests"
fill with coconut flakes
add eggs
