Easter Egg Nests

1 stick butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
4 1/2- 5 cups All-Bran or Fiber One cereal

Melt butter and marshmallows. Add to cereal in a large bowl. Stir well till combined. When cool enough to handle form into "nests" for your Easter Eggs. Spray hands often with Pam. It kinda stuck to wax paper, but lifted right off my silpat. I would say Pam the wax paper and you should be alright. Makes about 4-6 nests depending on size.
