    I also put some into muffin tins to make bigger nests.  I thought it would be super cute to stick a Peep in there with some eggs and handout as fun Easter treats.  I think they turned out great! adorable! wondering if you ve experienced any problems removing nests from the tins? i ve always molded the nests by hand but love the uniformity of these does the mixture stick to the tins?
