These little nests are ridiculously easy to make and taste pretty darn good, too. The chow mein noodles are crunchy and a little bit salty, which provides the perfect contrast to the gooey marshmallows that serve as the glue for the nests. The Cadbury Mini-Eggs on top are Lindsey’s favorite part – they remind her of studying abroad in Scotland. If you’re anything like her, you should probably buy an extra bag of the mini-eggs so that you have enough left over after munching to top these adorable nests.
Here’s the recipe:
4 cups crunchy chow mein noodles
1/4 cup butter
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 (8 ounce) package candy coated chocolate eggs
2 packages marshmallow peeps
Heat butter and marshmallows over medium heat, stirring until melted. Add noodles to the marshmallow mixture and stir till completely coated, like you would do when making Rice Krispies treats.
Spray a 12-cup muffin tin, then hands with cooking spray.
Place mixture into muffin cups and shape with hands to form “nests.” Fill nests with candy eggs and perch one Peep on the side of each nest.
Place nests on a tray and put back in the fridge till completely set.
