There are certain recipes I only make once a year, because they are either time consuming or only appropriate for certain seasons. These Easter Egg Nests are one of those recipes, but boy do I wish I made them more often. Similar to a Rice Krispie Treat, these cookies are made up of Chow Mein noodles coated in melted marshmallows and butter. Add a few chocolate eggs in the center and you’ll have a scrumptious Easter themed cookie, in less than 20 minutes.
This recipe is so simple, even the most inexperienced cook can put these together. No bake recipes are great for those who don’t have much time, but still want a delicious treat to serve guests. I know not everyone can cook or like to, but by trying out simple and easy recipes you’ll gain confidence in yourself as a cook and over time make more challenging things. Easter is this Sunday… so throw these cookies together before the weekend and impress your guests.
3 cups mini marshmallows
4 cups Chow Mein noodles
3 tablespoons butter
