Are you looking for a quick treat to make for your Easter celebration? Well, these mini brownie egg nests are not only quick and easy, but super cute!  I made these over the weekend and plan to whip up a batch for this weekend as we visit family to celebrate Easter.

Mini Brownie Egg Nest

1 box of brownie mix (and ingredients on box to make brownies)
1 container of whipped buttercream frosting
1 bag of mini Cadbury eggs or mini Robin eggs

Make brownies as directed using the "cake-like" instructions.  Bake in mini muffin pan for about 16 minutes or until done.  Allow to cool.  Pipe on frosting creating a "nest" and then top with your choice of mini eggs.
