Springtime Treat--Marshmallow Nests


My Mom used to make these tasty treats with us when we were kids. I enjoyed making them, and eating them! They are very easy to make:

Marshmallow Nests with eggs

1/2 bag marshmallows
2 T butter
Melt these together, then add:
1 tsp vanilla
 (you can play with the ratios to get them just right. Mine were a little heavy on the marshmallow this time, but I didn't really mind!)

Mix in:

1 big bag of Chinese noodles. When mixed, take the warm mixture and shape it into a little nest. Immediately, add your eggs to the nest. If you don't they won't stick, and will just fall out. That is no fun! For the eggs, you can use jelly beans, robin egg candies, or my personal favorite, Cadbury Mini Eggs!!! These are a pretty sticky, so have a bowl of water to dip your fingers in while you are shaping nests. Spray waxed paper with some Pam before you put them on, so they will come off easier.
