Easter Bird Nests


I first saw these sweet Easter/Springtime nests at Pam's (Our Adventures in Home Improvement) and knew they would be fun to make with our grandchildren.

Easter Bird Nests 1 Picture


  • Pam cooking spray
  • 2 cups Mini Marshmallows (I used 3/4 of a bag of large marshmallows)

Step 1

Rub butter in muffin pan sprayed with Pam.

In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Add marshmallows, stir and microwave 45 seconds on full power. Stir; microwave an additional 45 seconds. Stir; add Chow Mein noodles. Stir until coated with marshmallow/butter mixture.

Put butter (PAM) on your hands. Spoon the coated Chow Mein noodles in each cup, then use your hands to form it into little nests.

Put the pan in freezer for an hour or so.

Pop each nest out using a knife or fork.

Place on a lightly buttered serving plate or a plate lined with parchment paper or wax paper so nests won't stick.

Fill with candy and enjoy!
