For Easter we have spent the last few years heading over to my Aunt's house for the day. This has been our tradition since I was very little. My aunt takes care of all the main food, but we all pitch in with appetizers and little treats to share. I saw these on Pinterest and knew that I HAD to try them. For one, they are made from chow mein noodles - which I LOVE and second of all they looked delicious because they include chow mein noodle! Yummy!
(Recipe found at sherrihaab.wordpress.com via Pinterest)
1/4 cup butter
4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4 cups chow mein noodles
candy eggs (mini Cadbury eggs, M&Ms or jelly beans)
In heavy saucepan over med. heat melt butter and marshmallows until smooth. Stir in peanut butter and chocolate chips until melted. Remove from heat and stir in chow mein noodles. Work on wax paper and form 18-24 mounds. Dip fingers into cold water as you work to prevent the mixture from sticking and shape each mound into a nest. Fill with 2 or 3 candies each. Cool and store in airtight container if they last that long.
