    parchment paper works well to make clean up and removal of nests so easy, you could use aluminum foil as a substitute
  • a one Tablespoon cookie scoop makes nice round evenly sized nests, use a Tablespoon measuring spoon if you don’t have a cookie scoop
  • you will need “eggs” or nest fillers, I used a combination of yogurt covered raisins, jordan almonds and sun drops, but you could also use jelly beans or anything else that strikes your fancy[recipe]
