Easy Bird Nest Candy

WIN_20150403_210254One microwave. Four ingredients. Ten minutes. You’ve got this!

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.

WIN_20150403_200546Ingredients (Makes 12 Nests)

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)

WIN_20150403_19565512 Peeps


Step 1) Microwave white chocolate chips until melted, stirring every 30 seconds.

Step 2) Stir in chow mein noodles.

Step 3) Drop heaping tablespoons of the WIN_20150403_203230chow mein/white chocolate mixture onto waxed paper. Press a robin egg candy or a jelly bean into the center of each nest.

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!
