DIY Easter Nests

I have to say that during this entire isolation period I have been really missing my girls on Team Jilly! Since we are not able to be together we have all been trying to contribute to the blog and continue to create content for you! Today, Rachelle is going to share with you her favourite Easter treat that you can whip up too!

Take it away Rachelle!

I love making these super easy and simple Easter Nests! It’s a great recipe that you can get the kids involved with too. I hope you love them as much as I do.

DIY Easter Nests

Recipe by From the Kitchen of Jillian Harris


  • 3 mini mini marshmallows

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 3 tablespoons butter or vegan butter

  • 4 cups of crunchy chow mein noodles (I used Farkay)

  • Cooking Oil

  • 60 mini eggs

  • Parchment paper

  • Makes 12 nests – takes about 20 minutes. Kid-friendly!


  • In a medium saucepan add the butter, peanut butter and marshmallows and stir over medium heat. Mix until completely combined and until the marshmallows have completely melted. In a medium bowl, add the chow mein noodles.
  • Pour melted marshmallows over the chow mein noodles and mix until evenly coated.
  • Coat your hands with cooking oil so the noodles will not stick to your hands.
  • Scoop the noodle mixture from the bowl into the palm of your hand and make a loose ball.
  • Hollow out the centre of the noodle ball to form the shape of a nest and place it on parchment paper. Repeat with the remainder of the noodle mix.
  • Take 5 mini eggs per nest and arrange them in the middle of the nest. Voila!
