Easter nests

    These treats are perfect for Easter. They are also great to get the kids to help in the kitchen. Crunchy egg noodles are mixed with melted marshmallows, shaped into nests and chilled. Fill with chocolate eggs or jelly beans.

    excellent and easy to make i also used it without the noodles to create a toffee like,melt in your mouth taste! will definately be making them again  -  03 Dec 2012


    just darling and very good flavor. I made 2 batches; first batch as written in the muffin tins, and found that the nests are quite thick and big. Made the second batch with the suggestion of Breeze and added a few tbsp of peanut butter. With the second batch, I just free-formed them onto parchment paper. No sticking at all, and with the fingertips wet, they were easy to mold into little nests making them a little smaller and got more out of the batch. Used 'peeps' rabbits in some, marshmallow chicks in others, and cadbury pastel chocolate eggs. I like the chocolate flavor with the nest. Love the versatility of this recipe. Could also add some butterscotch morsels to the marshmallow/butter mixture, or chocolate chips. So cute and easy! Nice presentation on the Easter goodie trays. thanks for the recipe.  -  06 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    What a fun recipe. I have made these for years but have always added a little peanut butter to the mixture. This has always been a big hit :-)  -  25 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
