Directions

  1. Line a cookie sheet with foil and grease with spray-on cooking oil.
  2. Pour noodles into a large bowl. Melt the butter and marshmallows over medium heat, stirring until smooth. Pour marshmallow mixture over noodles, stirring until well coated.
  3. Rub some butter on hands and form noodle mixture into six round balls. Place balls on prepared cookie sheet. With the back of a teaspoon, press the center of each ball to make a hollow indentation.
  4. Let nests set until they are firm. Fill each with small jelly beans. (Other small candies of your choice may be substituted, such as M & M's, small gumdrops, chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered peanuts, etc.)

This is worth 5-stars for the fun factor and cuteness alone, although I actually think they're quite tasty too! I make mine just a little differently, although the basic idea is the same. I use 2 c. of the mini marshmallows and 1/4 c. butter to the 4 c. of chow mein noodles. Not saying the way I do it is better than this recipe as is, it's just what has worked well for me. I form the nests by filling sprayed muffin cups, then hollowing out the center while building up the sides with my buttered fingers. Rather than jelly beans, I use Jordan almonds in a beautiful robin's egg blue.

I just made these with my 3 yr old son. He did the measuring- so nothing exact!! It took 16 minutes start to finish- I melted the butter and marshmallows in the microwave. We put Cadbury chocolate pastel eggs inside. They taste great-are soooo easy, my son feels accomplished...doesn't get any better.

I love this recipe!! I have been making something similar for years. I found the easiest way to form the nest is to use a cupcake pan sprayed lightly with butter spray. It keeps your hands clean and they come out perfect!
