I first saw this recipe on the curvy carrot. I know there are many variations to it, so I encourage you to do whatever floats your boat! You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, so pick your favorite and have fun!
There’s also several varieties of candy eggs that you can use: Jelly beans, Jelly Bellies, Cadbury mini eggs, they even have M&M’s shaped like eggs! And the M&M’s have different flavors as well, like peanut, peanut butter, almond, milk chocolate, yes, I know, too many choices!
As we were making these, my daughter asked “What are you making mom?” To which I replied “Bird’s Nests”. As we continued, she said “Doze wook weally good, I think the birds will wike them”. I’m not sure if she thought they were homes or food for the birds!
This is super easy to put together, check out the video!
Did you see how easy those peel out of my DeMarle at home Silicon Muffin Pan? And I didn’t even have to grease it!! I love that thing! They’re available here, make sure you get the perforated baking tray to go with it.
- cooking spray or butter for greasing the muffin tin
- 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 6 oz butterscotch chips
- 1 cup creamy all natural peanut butter
- 5 oz chow mien noodles
- 1 package of Hershey's milk chocolate mini eggs
- Grease the muffin tin.
- Melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips over a double boiler, or in a glass bowl over a sauce pan with simmering water. Alternatively, you can use the microwave, using 20 second increments, stirring in between.
- Add the peanut butter and combine well.
- Fold in the chow mien noodles and gently stir to coat.
- Fill each of the muffin cups with the mixture, making a well in the center.
- Cool in the refrigerator until hardened, about 1 hour.
- Fill each 'nest' with a few mini eggs.
