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 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…
