bird's nests

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!
