Peanut Butter Bird's Nests Recipe

Hi Friends. How about a {cheep!} Easter treat?


Peanut Butter Birdie Nests Recipe

Ingredients: 1 twelve oz package of dry Chow Mein Noodles, 2 ten oz package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips and Peeps Marshmallow Chicks. (This recipe makes approximately 16 nests, so you’ll need 16 Peeps). Also, grab the cooking spray and a muffin tin and/or cupcake cups.


Optional: Small Easter themed candy like jelly beans, chocolate eggs or these Creamy Easter Eggs, Baby Bunnies and Ducks by PAAS.


Directions: Spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spary. Empty the two packages of peanut butter chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at one minute intervals and stir until chips are melted. To make stirring a little easier, spray cooking spray on a rubber spatula so the peanut butter goodness doesn’t stick as much.


Dump 9 oz (3/4 of the package) of the Chow Mein Noodles in a large bowl. Add melted peanut butter chips. Stir, stir, stir. When the ingedients are combined, form little nests in the muffin tin or cupcake cups. It’s easiest to spoon some of the mixture in and push down a little in the middle, make the “walls” and a place for the birdie to hang out.


Let the nests set. You can put them in the fridge for 15 minutes or so to hasten the process. Pop the birdies into the nests. If you are having a hard time making them “stay,” a dab of frosting on the bottom of the birds will secure them.


Add small Easter candy.


These make darling desserts or you could use them for “place cards” at your Easter meal.


Makes about 16 sweet little nests.
