    JamiLeigh's Note:

    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. 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. 2
      Heat butter and marshmallows over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Stir till melted.
    4. 4
      Add noodles and stir till completely coated.
    5. 5
      Spray muffin tin then hands with cooking spray.
    6. 6
      Place mixture into muffin cups and shape with hands to form "nests".
    7. 7
      Refrigerate.
    8. 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. 9
      Place nests on a tray and put back in the fridge till completely set.
    10. 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.
