Recipe:Easter Bird's Nest Cookies22-04-2011 Comments (1)
Here are the bird's nest cookies recipe and it is really easy to make. I hope that you will have time to go buy the ingredients before Easter Sunda y.
- 12 oz. package chow mein noodles
- 12 oz. package butterscotch chips
- Egg shaped candies (we used Hershey but peanut M & Ms work also)
-Begin by melting the butterscotch chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, then stir and repeat until candy is melt ed completely and smooth.
-Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
-Add the noddles to the bowl of melted candy and mix (crush them up a bit, but not too much). Use a large spoon or a 1/4 measuring cup to measure out the cookies and place on parchment paper. Place 3 of the candies (eggs) in the center.
*Note: If the melted candy starts to harden while making the cookies, simply place back in the microwave for 10 seconds. Also, to help the candy eggs stick, dip the bottom in the melted chocolate before placing onto the cookie.
-Allow about 5-10 minutes to dry and harden then enjoy.
You could also probably use peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch. However, my nephew is allergic to peanuts so we avoided the nuts (and if you are taking these to a party with any kids you may want to also since you never know who might be allergic).
