Easter Treats!

I tested out two, new kid-friendly Easter treats {& who am I kidding, we adults loved them too!} , that will be perfect for any upcoming Easter gathering you might have!

Easter Birds Nests

Delicious update to the classic recipe using Chow Mein noodles!

Servings 24 mini nests

Ingredients

  • 3/4 bag mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 4 c Chow Mein Noodles
  • 1 bag Cadbury's chocolate eggs

Instructions

  1. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray. I used a 24 mini muffin pan BUT you can also use the larger, 12 muffin pan. 

  2. In a large, microwave safe bowl (or over the stop top in a large pan) melt the butter. 

  3. If microwaving: Add marshmallows, stir & microwave an additional 45 seconds. Stir, microwave an additional 45 seconds. 

    If melting over stop top, once the butter is melted, stir in the marshmallows until smooth and melted. 

  4. Add the Chow Mein noodles to the mixture & stir until coated. With this amount of marshmallows, it will be STICKY but that is good!

  5. Spray a little cooking spray on your hands (trust me on this!). 

  6. Put ~golf ball size scoop of the noodles in each cup of hte muffin pan. Once all of them are full, use your thumbs to scupt the nests with a little hole in the middle

  7. Put pan in the refrigerator for at least an hour or so, to set. 

  8. Fill with a candy egg & enjoy! I found these gorgeous Cadbury Shimmer eggs - they look lovely in the nests! 

 

Layered Peeps Pops

These treats are SO fun!

Servings 27 pops

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp Butter, divided
  • 4 3 oz packages of Peeps in 4 different colors
  • 6 cups Crispy Rice cereal divided in 1.5 c

Instructions

  1. Prepare an 8 - 9" loaf pan by spraying lightly with cooking spray on the bottom & sides.

  2. Divide the peeps by 10s of the same color (10 yellow, 10 green, etc).

  3. In a deep, medium sized microwaveable dish, microwave 10 Peeps of the same color with 1 Tbsp of butter for 45 seconds. 

  4. Stir butter & Peeps together until fully melted & incorporated. 

  5. Stir in 1.5 cups of Crispy Rice cereal until fully coated. 

  6. Press firmly into loaf pan. 

  7. Repeat steps with other Peeps colors. 

  8. Place pan in refrigerator for ~1 hour to allow it to set. Once set, the loaf will come out easily and also, be easy to slice with a heavy-duty knife. 

  9. Once set, cut 1" thick slices x 3 wide and you will have 27 treats! 

  10. Use popsicle sticks or candy sticks to make these pops!
