Make These Adorable Edible Bird's Nests for Easter!!!

by Cindy Rippe

I was trying to come up with a cute little decoration for an Easter table setting that I need to design for a friend....These are so easy to make and so cute!

These are very quick and easy to do! All it takes is Chow mein noodles, butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and marshmallows!

Start with 3 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and 3 cups of marshmallows.

Melt it all together on low heat

Add chow mein noodles, stir, and then grease up your hands with some canola oil or vegetable oil, and roll out a small ball a little larger than a golf ball. Form into greased muffin pans to make a small nest.

Let cool completely.Remove from the muffin tins, then add your chocolate Easter eggs! How adorable!!

Edible Birds Nests

4 c. dry chow mein noodles

Chocolate candy Easter eggs


Grease a large muffin tin. Set aside.

Over low heat, melt the marshmallows ,peanut butter, and butter in a large saucepan.

Once melted, stir in vanilla, then the chow mein noodles.

Grab a clump of noodles a little larger than a golf ball size.

Using your hands , gently form the clump of noodles into a ball by rolling it around in your hands .

Press into greased muffin tin , pressing up on the sides to create a nest shape.

Allow to cool before placing candies inside.
