Welcome Spring! Bird Nest Snacks

Are you ready for spring?
I am not only ready... I'm getting impatient!
Here is a fun and simple treat you and your kids can make that I'm sure you'll all enjoy!

Adorable!  Don't you think??
These are so simple to whip up!

-  2 Cups Chinese Noodles
-  1 Cup Rice Krispies Cereal
-  1 Cup Mini Marshmallows
-  1 Pkg. Butterscotch Chips
-  Peeps
-  Jellybeans or other Egg-shaped Treat
-  Wax Paper


Step 1
Empty the butterscotch chips into a microwave safe bowl.  Follow the package directions to melt them, mixing them until smooth.

Here is mine after it's first minute in the microwave at 70% power.  I stirred, and put it in for another session.

I was melting the butterscotch chips while my son helped with this step..

Step 2.
In a separate bowl, measure out your Chinese Noodles.... 2 cups

Add 1 cup of Rice Krispies cereal.  You might need to taste them to make sure they are good.  Wesley gave his approval.

Pour the noodle and cereal mix into the melted butterscotch chips.

Add your marshmallows, and gently stir until everything is well coated with the melted butterscotch chips.

Step 3
Drop a large spoonful of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper.  Try to mash down the middle and build up the sides to look like a nest.

Step 4
Add a little birdie (peep) and a few eggs to each nest.  It may be hard to resist them at this point.  Luckily... they just need to set for a bit so the butterscotch can harden.  Set them aside on the counter and they will be ready in a matter of minutes!

And there you have it!

And let me add, very yummy!

This recipe made 6 bird nests.  You could make them much smaller, getting more from a batch, and omitting the Peeps... so you'd just have little nests with a few eggs.  I just couldn't resist using the Peeps.
