Edible Bird's Nests

8:00 PM

Who doesn't love the combination of crunchy chow mein noodles and chocolate or butterscotch chips? Add peanut butter and it is even better! I even attempted adding marshmallow to the chocolate ones; seriously, I went all out on these things, but the best part for the kids was this was something they could make with minimal help!

For a spring time treat we shaped these into little nests and added a Peanut Butter M&M egg!

Both recipes require Chow Mein Noodles (sorry I don't have an exact amount; just however many you like) and egg shaped candies. Additional ingredients and instructions below!

For the Chocolate/ Peanut Butter/ Marshmallow Nests:

1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 (7 oz) Jar Marshmallow Fluff
2 T butter

Combine the above in a small saucepan and melt, while stirring, until smooth. Stir in Chow Mein Noodles (no set amount just however many you want). Next form little nest shapes on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Add whatever you are using for eggs (like I said, we chose Peanut Butter M&Ms) and refrigerate. I will say the marshmallow fluff keeps the noodles from sticking well, but after shaping the nests and refrigerating they will set up!

For the Peanut Butter/ Butterscotch Nests:

1 Cup Peanut Butter
2 Cups (1 bag) Butterscotch Chips

Combine and melt in small saucepan while stirring. Add Chow Mein Noodles until coated. Form nests on waxed paper lined baking sheets adding egg shaped candies when you finish. Again we used the Peanut Butter M&Ms because you can't get a much better tasting egg shaped candy! These will set up at room temperature, but can be hurried along in the refrigerator.

What a better way to welcome spring then with some delicious little birds nests!
