No Bake Easter Nest Cookies


Not a new concept in cookie-making, but I had never made these Easter nest cookies before and they were so super easy as a last-minute treat to take to the school party (and the kids went nuts for ’em) that I thought I’d share. We can’t make insane decorated sugar cookies for every single occasion, right? Learn how to make no-bake easter nest cookies after the jump…
No-Bake Easter Nest Cookies

So you’ll need some egg shaped candy (I went with Cadbury mini eggs), some chocolate chips (or butterscotch for a more nest-colored cookie), and some crispy chow-mein noodles (like you’d find in a chinese chicken salad):

Melt the chips in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until they are liquid.

Throw the noodles in a bowl and cover with chocolate and stir. Lick the spatula.

Scoop out piles of chocolate noodles and shape into general nests. If you are feeling fancy, which I was not, you can put them in little plastic wrap-lined bowls to shape them into curved nests as they dry.

Before they harden, add your eggs. Smoosh them down a little and they will they fuse together as they harden.

Done. Grub.

I would probably eat the whole bag of cadbury mini eggs before the nests hardened enough. They send my self-control on vacation.

Also really good if you use cornflakes or rice crispies! And if you really want to step up a notch add caramel in the chocolate!

YES!! I was just thinking about these the other day! So glad that I found them here. Now off to send my hubby to the store. It'll interesting to see what he brings back when I ask for "chow mein noodles".

My Mom has made Easter nests since I can remember but she uses toasted coconut instead of chow mein noodles and uses Jelly Belly jellybeans for the eggs. I love to freeze them and then eat them. So good!
