Bird Nests

My husband actually snapped a photo of these at the last Boy Scout meeting.  I think they are adorable and so easy and fun for kids.

These No Bake Birds Nest Cookies are super easy and fun to make with your children!

Ingredients Needed:
  • 1 package chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c. peanut butter
  • 1 can crunchy Chinese noodles
  • 1 bag of Robin's Eggs (malted candies)

  1. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together in the microwave. Be careful not to overheat. The best way to do that is to stir it every minute until it is smooth.
  2. Mix in the noodles and spoon into little "nests" onto wax paper.
  3. Press two or three robin's eggs into the center of the cookie. The Cadbury Mini-Eggs work really well, but you can substitute with jelly beans, yogurt covered raisins, Jordan almonds, etc.
  4. Refrigerate until hard.

**For a bit more variation you can substitute butterscotch or cinnamon chips instead of chocolate chips!

  1. Hey Anita! Just checking in on you. I wonder if there is something instead of peanut butter...Jackson is allergic. Do you know?
    Hope you have a great Easter Sunday!
