Bird Nest Cookies

You may have already seen this elsewhere, but I had to share it.  Afterall, Easter is nearly here - and my family makes these every year.  I wanted to share our little tradition with you.

The cookies are adorable, and they are super easy - with just three ingredients in the ingredient list.  I can literally make these in 15 minutes - which is the largest reason as to why I choose these to make every year!!

All you need to do is melt your butterscotch chips in a double boiler, or microwave.  Mix in the chow mein noodles.  Using a spoon, or your hand, make little 'nests' with the noodles on a baking sheet.  Stick 3 mini Cadbury eggs of the same color in each nest.  

If you want them to stick better, use a little melted butterscotch as glue - dip a little of the surface of the eggs in it, and stick them in the nest.

Bird Nest Cookies

  • 12oz bag of chow mein noodles
  • 2.5 cups butterscotch chips, melted
  • 1 bag mini Cadbury eggs


Mix the melted butterscotch chips together with the chow mein noodles. Using a spoon, or your hands, make little nests with the mixture on a baking sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil or wax paper.  Press 3 little eggs of the same color in each nest.  Let cool completely before serving.


Shared with these great blog parties!
