Peanut Butter Easter Bird's Nest

Today’s easy-to-create Peanut Butter Easter Bird’s Nests will be a fun treat to add to your Easter menu whether you’re baking with kids or adults in mind!

The idea of Bird’s Nests have been floating around since the first hint of Spring, which while the weather has been determined to hold us back, the grocers are more than happy to provide us with Spring candies. Pinterest is filled with plenty of versions of this Bird’s Nest, and I must say they turned out easier, tastier and cuter than I’d ever imagined!

Four ingredients, just four, that’s all you’ll need to create this finger-lickin’ dessert. Chow-mein noodles, peanut butter, melting chocolate and your choice of chocolate Easter eggs. We opted for mini Reeses’ eggs because (obviously) we needed more peanut butter.

Baker’s Tip: I used to depend solely on Wilton’s Chocolate Wafers for recipes such as this, but have learned that they’re much harder to work with than springing for some actual baking chocolate. My Kroger had in stock Ghiradelli Baking Wafers which I heated in a makeshift double-boiler and it was infinitely easier to work with than the Wilton wafers.

For even easier preparation, line a muffin tin to fill for allowing your nests to "set." This helps create a nicely formed nest! However, if you don’t have a spare muffin tin, you can certainly form these nests and let them set individually on parchment paper.

Hope you enjoy these Peanut Butter Easter Bird’s Nests as much as we did!

Ingredients

12 oz bag Ghiradelli dark melting wafers
1/2 cup peanut butter
12 oz bag chow mien noodles
Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs for topping the nests

Directions


Spray muffin tins lightly with Pam and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside.

Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together in a double boiler. Slowly stir the chocolate wafers and peanut butter until it's a smooth mixture. Then fold in the chow mien noodles.

Drop by spoonfuls into the prepared muffin tin and mold into nest shapes. Place the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs on the nests before the chocolate has time to set. 

Place them in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to allow them to set up more quickly. I recommend serving at room temperature.

  1. These are so cute. We make a similar version that we call "haystacks," using peanut butter and butterscotch chips. The chocolate-PB combination sounds delicious...I'm just not sure I could stop myself from eating them all! They're so cute for a kids' Easter treat. Pinned!
