Peeps Bird Nest Treats for Easter

I have to be honest. I don’t really like Peeps. (How’s that for kicking off this post?) Peeps are just not my thing, but my kids went crazy when my mom made these Peeps Bird Nest Treats with them, so now you will probably find me purchasing at least one package of Peeps every.single.year.

My guys also like to put a tray of Peeps in the microwave and turn it on “just to see what happens”. Definitely let your kids try this…but supervise closely. You’re welcome. *smile*

Okay, now back to the Easter Treats…

Peeps Bird Nest Ingredients:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step #1: Begin by melting the butter and marshmallows together – You may choose to use the microwave or a double boiler.

Step #2: Once the above mixture is melted, carefully fold it in the chow mein noodles.

Now here comes the fun part!

Step #3: Use this sticky concoction to carefully mold small “nests” in the palm of your hand – laying each completed one out on wax paper.

Greasing up your hands with Crisco (or a similar product) makes it much easier to work with these sticky, sticky nests!

Step #4: Quickly top each “nest” with one Peep and a few candy eggs.

Step #5: Your creations are complete! Now toss them in the fridge to harden, and they’re ready to enjoy in no time!
