Need a different Easter treat besides sugar cookies?

So, I copied Krista's idea (again) and this is what we made yesterday. The ingredients may sound a little odd, but they were actually really tasty and easy to make. We are making them for part of den meeting this week.

Edible Easter Nests

1 -11 oz bag butterscotch chips (I measured bulk chips in my glass measuring up)

1 - tbsp butter

3/4 c - chunky peanut butter (I used creamy)

3 c - marshmallow creme (about 1 1/2 containers)

1 - 12 oz package chinese noodles (I used a 9 oz. bag)


green food coloring

jelly beans

*Melt and mix first 4 ingredients. Stir the noodles in. Lightly grease muffin tins and drop spoonfuls of mixture into the cups. Form cups like nests with your fingers. When they have cooled, fill with green coconut. Garnish with jelly beans and other Easter candy.
