Get ready for the Easter Bunny's visit with unforgettable Easter Nests treats. Nestled in delicious butterscotch or chocolate nests, the unforgettable taste of these elegantly wrapped candy eggs will leave kids hopping for more.

Ingredients:

  • Wax paper
  • 1 2/3 to 2 cups (11- to 12-ounce package) NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Butterscotch or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cans (5 ounces each) chow mein noodles
  • 30 to 60 NESTLÉ NestEggs, any flavor

Directions:

LINE trays with wax paper.

MICROWAVE morsels in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in peanut butter until well blended.

ADD chow mein noodles to morsel mixture; toss until coated. Using ice cream scoop that measures about 2 rounded tablespoons, scoop and drop onto prepared trays then immediately shape into nests. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Before serving, place one or two NestEggs in each nest. Store prepared nests in covered container for up to 1 day.

    Easy, quick, tasty, and cute nests!

    Sonja Kohler-Gardner from Bothell, WA

    I just made these little nests and the whole process only took about 15 minutes! I halved the recipe and put 2 mini malted milk eggs in each nest. I ended up making 30 nests which will be great for the Easter egg hunt I am hosting tomorrow!

    Bringing Back Memories

    Kris McNaughton from Guelph, ON

    I love this recipe. It tastes good and it is quick and easy. The kids can help with the cookies so you can work fun family time into baking as well. For me I always associated these cookies with Christmas, I had never thought to put an easter egg as the decoration. I will have to try them out this year.

    Oldie but goodie

    Nancy K from Cape Cod

    This recipe takes me way back, my mother always made these at the holidays but added nuts to them and called them noodle nut bites. They were always a hit with friends and family.

    Have made these a few times and they really are a hit. You can even use them to decorate a cake or have your kids help make them. Will make these again during the year.

    Easter nest

    Iva Bartell from Oregon, IL

    This recipe has been around for a very long time. My mother made it for me and my brothers when we were very young. She called the candy hay stacks, but did not have eggs on top. I like this idea, will be making some for my grandchildren this weekend for Easter. Do try them they are very good.

    Kids LOVE this!

    Renee Flewelling from Burlington, ON

    We have been making this recipe for a few years now and the kids love to do it - it's easy and memorable - both for them and the people who they give the nests to! We use the speckled candy coated malted milk eggs for a fun look. We have also made a 'peanut free' version.

    Simple, Fun, and Delicious

    Jessica Arrowood from Syracuse, UT

    I made a trial recipe of these this weekend using only the chocolate chips, not the butterscotch, and they were a big hit! I'm going to make them for Easter and my son's daycare so I wanted to see if he would eat them first! I'm already being asked when I'll make them again.
