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.
