bird's nests

    Newer Older

    I made these after inspiration... and a recipe (I altered slightly) from flickr!

    they were a definite crowd pleaser. I had many gaping mouths in my own kitchen at the reveal, and further murmuring among women at the church munching!
    Bird’s Nests
    (yield: 12 nests)
    • 2 cups mini-marshmellows
    • ¼ cup butter
    • 4 cups (6 oz. package) chow mein noodles (or rice noodles)
    • Whoppers Mini-Eggs (or jelly beans)
    • 12 cup muffin pan

    1. Butter the cups in the muffin pan.
    2. (In a 2 qt sauce pan) combine marshmallows & butter. Cook over a low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted (6-8 minutes.)
    3. Stir in noodles, until well coated.
    4. With buttered fingers, press mixture on the bottom & up the sides of each cup of the muffin pan. (you may find the need to re-butter often, and move quickly & carefully as the mixture is very sticky & hot!)
    5. Refrigerate at least 2 hs or until firm.
    6. Remove from the pan (you may find it easier to sit the pan in warm water to loosen them up first!)
    7. Fill with Mini-Eggs!
