Peanut Butter Easter Nests Recipe
  • Chop the Plain M&M's into smaller pieces using a large knife. Set the chopped candies aside to be added later.
  • Add the marshmallow creme, peanut butter, and melted butter to a mixing bowl and beat until evenly mixed.
  • Add the chow mein noodles and the chopped M&M's to the creamed mixture and stir in by hand. Stir mixture until the chow mein noodles and M&M's are coated evenly.
  • Using a heaping tablespoon of the mixture, drop a mound onto a lightly buttered cookie sheet. With buttered fingers, form each mound into a rounded shape and make an indent in the middle to make them look like little nests.
  • Add Peanut M&M's to each nest to make them look like they are filled with eggs. Set them aside to allow them to firm up before serving.
