Buzzard's Nests
A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.

2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 pkg. (10oz) large shredded wheat cereal biscuits, crushed
1 pkg. (12oz) candy-coated chocolate-covered peanuts

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small mixing bowl; beat at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves. Stir in crushed cereal. Drop by level tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets. 
 

Make an indentation in center of each with the back of a teaspoon.  Place 3 peanut candies in each indentation.  

Bake at 275 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until set.   Immediately remove to wire racks to cool.  Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 3 dozen.
