Easter Bird’s Nests
Ingredients (6 nests):
4 cups chow mein noodles
3 cups miniature marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
30 small jellybeans
- Line a cookie sheet with foil and grease with spray-on cooking oil.
- Pour noodles into a large bowl. Melt the butter and marshmallows over medium heat, stirring until smooth. Pour marshmallow mixture over noodles, stirring until well coated.
- Rub some butter on hands and form noodle mixture into six round balls. Place balls on prepared cookie sheet. With the back of a teaspoon, press the center of each ball to make a hollow indentation.
- Let nests set until they are firm. Fill each with small jelly beans. (Other small candies of your choice may be substituted, such as M & M’s, small gumdrops, chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered peanuts, etc.)
