DIY Easter Nests

Recipe by From the Kitchen of Jillian Harris

Ingredients

  • 3 cups 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!

Directions

  • 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 center 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!

There you have it, our go-to Easter dessert recipe! Let us know in the comments below if you tested them out!

  1. Happy Easter! 🐰. Hope there will be a post with the gifts Leo and Annie received from the Easter Bunny. Thanks

    1. How many marshmallows? Can you clarify please. 3 mini mini doesn’t sound right, thanks so much:)

  2. Are there other options we can use for the nest instead of the noodles? Greatly appreciated!! 😊💗 Happy Easter!
