Bird Nest Candy is just about the simplest thing you can bring to your Easter gathering without looking like you stopped at the gas station and grabbed whatever vaguely edible thing was on display next to the lottery tickets to avoid showing up empty handed. This recipe doesn’t require you to bake anything, but don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.
1 cup white chocolate chips
2 cups chow mein noodles
1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional!)
12 “robin egg” candy eggs (or substitute jelly beans)
Step 1) Microwave white chocolate chips until melted, stirring every 30 seconds.
Step 2) Stir in chow mein noodles.
Step 4) Set a Peep off center on each nest. If you want to make sure your Peeps don’t fall off, put a dot of melted white chocolate under each Peep.
Done! Happy Easter!
