Easy edible bird’s nest cookies perfect for Easter and Spring.
  • 3 1/2 cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 4 cups Chow Mein Noodles
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • Easter Sprinkles
  • Mini Cadbury Eggs
  1. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. When butter is almost melted add the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and add vanilla and chow mein noodles.
  4. Tip: Rub a small amount of Crisco onto your hands so that the mixture won’t stick when forming the nests.
  5. Take a golf ball sized portion of the mix, gently press into a muffin cup, use your fingers to push down the center to make a recessed bowl.
  6. Add sprinkles. (If you add the sprinkles to the mix they will melt so add after you’ve shaped the nests.)
  7. Cool.
  8. Add mini Cadbury eggs.
  9. Enjoy!

A muffin pan is perfect for shaping the nests.  Simply spray with Pam or other non-stick spray so they won’t stick to the pan.
