Easter Treats...

Corynn saw this in magazine and begged us to make them for her birthday treats at school. They are super easy and quick! baking!

  • One package butterscotch almond bark
  • Two packages chow mein noodles
  • One package Peanut MMs or Whopper Eggs or jelly beans (depending on personal preference)
Put half of the almond bark in microwavable dish and melt. Stir in one bag of chow mein noodles. Spread out wax paper or foil and make flat patties (not that big...about 1 1/2 inches). Place two or three "eggs" in the center of the nest and fold patty around the eggs. I also found that putting them in cup cake papers is a really easy way to do it. Its easier to form nests by using the cupcake pan as a form and they can be easily removed from the papers.

Super fun and easy and the kids had fun! Another good thing is that they are easy to keep fresh and can be left out for awhile without going stale.

Only problem is ... is that one package of almond bark makes about 60 nests... so half the recipe and only use one bag of noodles if you want less.

I think I've sufficiently gushed about how cute and yummy these were. Yes, were. They didn't last very long.
Yummy yummy.
