This week will likely be a decadent parade of easy, incredible Easter treats. You see, in my quest to find some really fabulous Easter crafts–a dreadful thing happened. I discovered that there were way more enticing goodies than there were things to make with egg cartons and tacky glue. So, it wasn’t actually my fault. I was completely…ahhh…overcome.
These are a wonderful way to start.
Easter Bird Nests
Melt 1/4 cup butter in medium saucepan. Add 16 oz bag of marshmallows and stir over medium heat until melted. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add 12 oz Chow Mein noodles and stir till well coated with marshmallow.
Place and egg size spoonfull in each cup of a buttered muffin tin. Shape into nests by gently pressing a dent in the middle of each one. Let them set for an hour or so then add a couple of jelly beans or chocolate eggs.
Wrap each nest in a plastic bag before putting in an Easter basket.
Besides being really cute–they actually taste good too. Beat that!
