Now that St. Patrick's Day has passed, it's time to start focusing on one of my favorite holidays, Easter! I love everything about Easter, especially because it's in my favorite season, SPRING! It is so easy to find inexpensive but super cute ideas this time of year and I am loving this one! It only takes 3 ingredients to make the actual nests making it very inexpensive but SUPER cute! You can get chocolage bunnies for $1 and you can make this super sweet if you buy the edible grass too! You can also buy just about anything to go into the nests. We have used M&M's, speckled eggs, milk balls, jelly beans, etc.
Thanks iVillage for this awesome recipe!!! If you have a recipe or fun idea for Spring that you would like to share with us, shoot me an email! We would love to feature it here! firstname.lastname@example.org
1 Cup of Butterscotch or Chocolate Chips
2 Cups Dry Chow Mein Noodles
Candy to fill the nests
Line 2 baking sheets with wax paper or parchment.
Put the butterscotch morsels in a microwave-safe bowl, and melt them in the microwave: Heat on high for 60 seconds, stir well, then
continue to heat, if needed, for 2 or 3 minutes in 10-second bursts, stirring well after each burst. Avoid overheating, which WILL cause the morsels to become stiff and they will be ruined.
Stir the chow mein noodles into the melted butterscotch. Drop large spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets, using the back of the spoon to press a little hollow into the center. While the nests are still warm, press a clutch of jellybeans or candy eggs into the center of each treat.
How cute and YUMMY!
