Nest Egg Cookies & Recipe

I am in love with these nest egg cookies. I just made thirty of them in less than fifteen minutes, which means they are likely to become an Easter classic around here. They are so quick, easy and YUMMY! This is a great recipe for the kids to pitch in on too. Ingredients for Nest Egg Cookies 12 oz. package chow mien noodles 12 oz. package butterscotch morsels (At least. A couple extra ounces will give you a better hold) 90 egg-shaped candies. I’ve used Cadbury Mini Eggs. Melt the morsels in a double boiler, mix in the chow mien noodles. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to drop scoops onto a pan that’s lined with parchment paper. Place three Cadbury Mini Eggs onto each nest. Allow them to set for 5-10 minutes before serving or transferring to a dish. It’s that easy! These cute cookies are perfect for school parties, family gathering and even Spring birthday parties. via suburbanhomestead.typepad.com
