Easy Easter Peeps Bird Nests
Yield: 10 nests
3 cups mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups dry chow mein noodles
small decorative candies (jelly beans, chocolate eggs, Peeps, etc.)
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the marshmallows and butter. When melted together, stir in the vanilla extract and chow mein noodles.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Let the mix cool slightly, and then coat your hands with cooking spray or a little butter.
Grab a small handful of the chow mein mixture and form it into a ball. Then press your thumbs into the center to hollow it out and create a nest shape.
Allow the nests to cool and then have fun decorating with the candy of your choice!
