Super Easy Easter Nests and a Winner!

I love making these nests for Easter.  Everyone looks forward to them and they are so easy to make!

2 cups Mini Marshmallows
1/4 cup Butter
4 cups of Chow Mein Noodles
Jelly Beans, M&M's or Robin's Eggs to fill

--This recipe makes about 12 nests.  If you want to make more, buy two bags of Chow Mein Noodles.  You'll have plenty of Marshmallows with one bag.

In 2 quart saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows.  Stir until smooth.  Take off of heat and immediately add chow mein noodles.  Stir until coated with marshmallow/butter mixture. 

Use a very clean 12 count cupcake pan.  Rub butter in all cups.

 Put butter on your hands.  Spoon the coated chow mein noodles in each cup, then use your hands to form it into  little nests. 

Put the cupcake pan in freezer for an hour or so (or even overnight).  To pop each nest out, I usually use a butter knife to gently pry it out.   I use parchment paper or wax paper between the plate and the nests so they don't stick.   Fill with candy and enjoy!

Sometimes I find the candies on the plate and the nests have all been eaten!  They are delicious.   

Thank you to everyone who entered my first giveaway!  The winner is:  Grammy Goodwill. Congratulations!
