Every year my girls make easter nest treats filled with favorite egg shaped candies. I’ve adapted this recipe from one I found almost 2o years ago in a magazine. The recipe is super easy using only one pan and takes about 20 minutes to make- they are yumtastic! Here is the recipe:
- 1/4 cup butter
- 4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 4 cups chow mein noodles
- candy eggs (mini Cadbury eggs, M&Ms or jelly beans)
In heavy saucepan over med. heat melt butter and marshmallows until smooth. Stir in peanut butter and chocolate chips until melted. Remove from heat and stir in chow mein noodles. Work on wax paper and form 18-24 mounds. Dip fingers into cold water as you work to prevent the mixture from sticking and shape each mound into a nest. Fill with 2 or 3 candies each. Cool and store in airtight container if they last that long.
