Peanut Butter Chocolate Nests are so quick to whip up, for a chewy, chocolatey, Easter treat! I’ve been wanting to make these “bird’s nests” that I see all over Pinterest for Easter, and I finally remembered to do it! I’m not sure what took me so long, because these things are EASY and QUICK to make! I call this version, “Peanut Butter Chocolate Nests” because that’s basically what’s in there, besides marshmallows and butter to make them more like a rice krispie treat. So chewy and delicious! And obviously, the mini cadbury eggs on top are a holiday favorite of ours too! If you want a fun Easter treat to make with the kids, this is it! And they are as much fun to eat as they are to make!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Nests
Peanut Butter Chocolate Nests are so quick to whip up, for a chewy, chocolatey, Easter treat!
- 1/4 cup butter
- 4 1/2 to 5 cups mini marshmallows (about half of a 16oz bag)
- 1/2 cup Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 4 cups chow mein noodles
- 54 Mini Cadbury Eggs (2/3 of a bag)
- Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large, non-stick stock pot.
- Stir in the chocolate chips and peanut butter, until melted. Remove mixture from heat.
- Fold in the chow mein noodles until everything is coated evenly.
- Spoon nests onto lightly greased wax paper or a silicone baking mat, using cold water to help shape the nests with your fingers.
- Immediately place 3 Mini Cadbury Eggs in the center of each nest while they are still warm, so the eggs will adhere to the nests and not fall off.
- Allow nests to cool before consuming. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.
