Chow Mein Noodle Bird's Nest Cookies Recipe

I have made these little treats for the past couple of years and both adults and children enjoy them. The Easter Egg nests are edible party favors or place holders at the Spring Easter table.

You could also use these for parties at school instead of cupcakes or as a teacher or neighbor treat.

They are really easy to make, and the kids will enjoy filling the nests with the treats. However, the adult might want to stick to the nest building because it is pretty sticky and the kids might eat all the nest building mixture!

Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the mixture into 11 greased cupcake tins. It is easiest to use a buttered piece of saran wrap or bottom of a small glass to help shape the nest design and make an indentation in middle.

TIP
You could also probably do this with melted white chocolate instead of the marshmallow mixture if you prefer that taste. Rice krispies or broken small pretzel sticks would also work in place of the chow mein noodles.

Since Peeps tend to get hard quickly you can skip this step or just add them right before you are serving them.  These Easter Nests can be stored in a plastic container for 3 days.
