Birds Nests {kids in the kitchen}

Happy Friday Friends!  This week has gone by so quickly, but I have really enjoyed sharing some of our favorite family treats and activities.  Ready for the last one before Easter?

Birds Nests Treats {Onekriegerchick.com}

Birds Nests are one of the treats I remember most from my childhood.  I cannot remember who made them, but I do remember eating sooo many that my tummy hurt.  I would even sneak them off the table after I was told I had eaten too many.

Birds Nests are super easy to make and are a good recipe to make with a little helper.  Bonus: They are no-bake!  You could make them for an easy Easter dessert or enjoy them anytime during the Spring.

Here we go…

What you’ll need:

1 bag butterscotch chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 bag chow mien noodles

candy to use for eggs

How to make them:

Heat the butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a microwave until melted. ( Stir periodically. Chips may look solid even after melting.) Stir in bag of chow mien noodles.  Working quickly, use a spoon to drop nests onto wax paper or other non-stick surface.  They will look like uneven nests.  Quickly set three eggs on top of each nest.  Allow to set and enjoy!

Note: We used jelly beans because that is what the boys chose, but I really prefer chocolate eggs combined with the butterscotch.  M&M’s have some really cute speckled eggs out right now that would be perfect.

Hope you didn’t miss out on my other fun Easter ideas…
