These little “Easter Nests” are almost too cute to eat. A fun and easy treat that’s no-bake and comes together in minutes.
In case you are still looking for something sweet to add to your Easter menu, I have just the right thing for you today.
I wasn’t sure if I should post a recipe as simple as this one. It basically requires no skill and has been around forever. But when I made these over the weekend, I remembered how much I love these tiny nests and had to put them on the blog.
They were practically begging for it.
One reason why these nests are so irresistible is the fact that they hold the trinity of all things delicious. Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Butterscotch. Combined with crunchy Chow Mein Noodles and finished with Easter candy eggs, they make for the ultimate sweet surprise. Plus, they have that serious cute factor.
Now that’s my definition of Easter Eggstravaganza!
This is one of those treats that’s unforgettable. If you don’t want to plan on making these again next year, you probably shouldn’t prepare them this year either.
Once you start bringing these, everyone will expect you to make them again and again. It will become synonymous with your name at Easter and if you’re anything like me, you won’t mind. Because you have been waiting to eat yourself silly and happy just as much.
Addicting little nests. And of course, you can use any candy you like. I placed Mini Robin Eggs aka Whoppers in mine since they’re so pretty and I like the extra crunch. Mmmmm.
Just another reason why Easter is so awesome to celebrate. It’s pretty tough to beat all the wonderful food that’s being served for Easter brunch. So thankful we get to celebrate two weeks in a row!
Anyhoo, hope these Easter Nests make an appearance at your house in the next couple of days.
Also, I suspect the process of making these would be perfect to keep little hands busy and entertained.
- 1 package chow mein noodles
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- chocolate candy Easter eggs
- Spray 2 mini muffin pans (12 cups each) with cooking spray. Set aside.
- 1. Pour chow mein noodles into a large bowl. In another microwave-safe bowl, combine milk chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Put into microwave and heat until melted. Add peanut butter and stir until fully incorporated. Pour mixture over noodles and stir to combine.
- 2. Using two tablespoons, fill each mini muffin cup with chocolate noodle mixture until nests form. Place 3 chocolate Easter eggs on top of each nest and place muffin pans into the fridge to set. When ready to serve, simply remove each nest and enjoy!
- Easter Nests will keep up to 1 week stored in an airtight container in the fridge or for up to 2 months in the freezer.
