AHHH! Mini eggs are one of my favourite easter treats. These look SO good. I really wish I had some mini eggs right now... I may just need to go out and buy some in order to make these.

I was going to say that they look like birds nests, but then seeing all of the cracked eggs was kind of sad :(

But they sure look cute!

What a perfect way to use up leftover Easter candy!

I love that you wrote "makes 12 scones
...or 11 if you are impatiently hungry" :P I always eat baked goods straight from the oven! They taste best that way (or that's my excuse for my impatientness :P)

Those cadburry eggs are my favorite Easter candy HANDS DOWN! I bought a bag for myself to use for future baking... :)

I cannot describe how much I love Cadbury mini eggs! Well, I guess I can. I sneaked one or two this year, and although I felt a bit icky from the milk, the tongue totally won against the tummy.

The first scone I ever tried was one I made! I found a scone recipe while scouring the web one day for using up some almonds I had, and I've been in love with them ever since.

This is the perfect recipe for leftover Easter candy! I love it - and I think I can rationalize eating more candy now that I've recoved from my sugar hangover!
