      I did as another reader suggested and subbed butterscotch chips for the sugar and corn syrup. I used a large bag of chow mein noodles which was 8 cups. I used an entire bag of butterscotch chips and melted them with the peanut butter! These are so cute and absolutely taste wonderful! One of these does go a long way! Thank you for an new Easter tradition winkki!

      These were the cutest! I used natural peanut butter, butterscotch chips instead of the the syrup and sugar and mini eggs instead of the jellybeans and they turned out fantastic and not too sweet. The mixture was to goopy to shape into balls so I formed the nests into muffin tins, which made them a little bigger than I wanted, but they were still so good.

      I used to make these in Girl Scouts as "haystacks" rather than nests, and I thought the jelly bean eggs were cute. However, the ones I used to make were the butterscotch chip version (safer, maybe?) and I liked that flavor better. Perhaps if the sugar mixture were cooked longer it would be similar, but I think I will stick to the version I know. I will keep your adorable presentation, though.
