Easter Egg Bird Nests

Posted by on Friday, March 29th, 2013


These Easter Egg Bird Nests are a tradition at our house.  This is another fun recipe the kids enjoy helping me make each Easter.  They are incredibly tasty and equally easy to make.  They don’t last long so make a batch and enjoy!

  • 1 12oz package of Chow Mien Noodles –slightly crunched
  • 1 12 oz package of chocolate chips
  • 8 oz (1/2 pound) white almond bark
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 package malted Easter eggs, (multi colored)

In microwave safe bowl melt chocolate chips and white almond bark.  Microwave a minute at a time, stirring after each minute.  Repeat process until chocolate is melted and smooth.

Then add the peanut butter and mix well.


Next add the chow mien noodles and stir until all noodles are well coated.


Tear off a couple of 18” sheets of wax paper.

Using a ¼ cup measure, scoop out some of the chocolate noodle mixture.  Drop mixture onto wax paper.


Use a spoon to finish shaping the nests.  Our nests were 3-4” in diameter.  Use the back side of a spoon or scoop to make the “bowl” of each nest. Drop 3-4 malted eggs into each “bowl” of the nest.


When nests have hardened, remove them from wax paper and transfer to a pretty serving dish.  These are quite festive  served atop edible Easter grass.
