Easter is definitely not going to be normal this year. Corona Virus social distancing measures mean we won’t be having a big family dinner. There will be no community egg hunts and no cute Easter Bunny photos. There’s plenty we can do to make it special for our kids though and one of those things is making fun Easter treats!
These birds nests were so easy to make–all you need are four ingredients. You don’t even have to bake them! My kids had so much fun helping me both make them, and eat them.
Butterscotch Bird’s Nests
Yields approx. 15 nests
- Muffin tin
- Wax paper
- 1 bag of butterscotch chips (250g)
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 4 cups of Chow Mein noodles
- 1 bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs to decorate
Melt your butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring continuously until melted.
Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl with your Chow Mein noodles and stir well to combine.
Spray your muffin tins with cooking spray and add a spoonful of your mixture into each compartment. If needed shape them slightly so they look like nests.
Leave the nests for about 20 minutes to set, then carefully transfers to parchment or wax paper, and lightly shape them again if needed. Add your mini eggs into the middle of the nests and you’re done!
Hope you have fun making these with your kids, be sure to tag me on Instagram if you do (@alexandtribe). Hope you find a way to have a great Easter while staying home!
