Easter Egg Nests

I've made this Easter treat before but I tweaked the recipe this time to make the nest a little more chocolate.  The best thing about the recipe is that you make it all in one pan so clean up is a snap.






Easter Egg Nests

Melt together in a large saucepan ~

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup cashew butter (or peanut)
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Stir in until melted ~

4 cups mini marshmallows

Fold in  ~

6 oz chow mein noodles

Scoop out 16 nests onto parchment lined baking sheets.  

Grass topping ~

1/4 cup coconut
2 drops green food coloring

Mix together in a plastic bag.  Use a pinch on top of each of the nests and top with 2-3 eggs.  I used M & M Milk Chocolate Eggs.
