Fun Spring Treats! Kids love them. Use a 6 or 12 cup muffin tin depending on desired size of nests. We made only 6 nest with this recipe so we could overlap the top and give an "edge" for our bird to sit on. You could serve these right away or wrap them in a pretty cellophane bag and give them as a gift.

Directions

  1. Use a 6 or 12 cup muffin tin depending on desired size of nests. We made only 6 nest with this recipe so we could overlap the top and give an "edge" for our bird to sit on.
  2. Heat butter and marshmallows over medium heat.
  3. Stir till melted.
  4. Add noodles and stir till completely coated.
  5. Spray muffin tin then hands with cooking spray.
  6. Place mixture into muffin cups and shape with hands to form "nests".
  7. Refrigerate.
  8. Approximately 30 minutes later, gently remove nests from muffin tin and perch a Peep on the side. (It helps if the nest is still a bit sticky, this will "glue" the peep on.).
  9. Place nests on a tray and put back in the fridge till completely set.
  10. Fill with candy eggs.

These are just TOO CUTE! I made enough to set at each place setting for my Easter table. I also think this would be a great baby-shower favor. I'm not a fan of peeps, so I left those off. Thanks for the great idea.
