Birds Nests are my FAVORITE treat to make for Easter! It is so tasty and uses very few ingredients.
3 cups of mini marshmallows
3 tbs of butter
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
4 cups of dry chow mein noodles
small candy robin eggs or jelly beans
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Over low heat melt the butter and marshmallows in a large sauce pan.
Then stir in the vanilla and mix in the chow mein noodles.
Here is where it gets a bit messy. Apply some shortening to your hands. Then grab a small clump of the noodles and form into a ball. Press a small indent in the center to make it form into a nest and set on the parchment paper to cool. Once cool fill the nests with candy. I like to use chocolate robin eggs.
