Edible Easter Nests

Edible Easter Nests
Normally, I love Easter–the long awaited arrival of Spring, and all things beautiful and soft. This year it is just coming too fast! I haven’t had weeks to scheme up all kinds of Easter decor, gifts or projects. I did have one idea, however, and I figured I had better share it with you before Easter is over.

These nests are going to hold name cards at Easter dinner, and we may even make a large scale one for the centerpiece. They are really quite easy.

I basically made rice crispy treats, substituting chow mein noodles for rice crispies. I used the large-sized muffin tins to mold the nests. This part is really messy since you are handling the sticky stuff. (I put greased plastic sandwich bags on my hands). As you smoosh the noodles down into the pan, make sure to press in a divot for the eggs. If you take out the nests after they have set up, but before they are completely hard, you can reshape them a little so that they look a little more natural. I used Reese’s candy-coated peanut butter eggs, but there are many kinds of candy eggs that would work for this.
