I love making these nests for Easter. Everyone looks forward to them and they are so easy to make!
2 cups Mini Marshmallows
1/4 cup Butter
4 cups of Chow Mein Noodles
Jelly Beans, M&M's or Robin's Eggs to fill
--This recipe makes about 12 nests. If you want to make more, buy two bags of Chow Mein Noodles. You'll have plenty of Marshmallows with one bag.
In 2 quart saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows. Stir until smooth. Take off of heat and immediately add chow mein noodles. Stir until coated with marshmallow/butter mixture.
Use a very clean 12 count cupcake pan. Rub butter in all cups.
Put the cupcake pan in freezer for an hour or so (or even overnight). To pop each nest out, I usually use a butter knife to gently pry it out. I use parchment paper or wax paper between the plate and the nests so they don't stick. Fill with candy and enjoy!
Sometimes I find the candies on the plate and the nests have all been eaten! They are delicious.
