Bird’s Nest Cookies

on April 4, 2012

If you need a quick and easy Easter snack idea these are it!  They taste yummy and the kids will love helping you make them.  You need:

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup peanut butter

2 cups chow mein noodles

jelly beans

wax paper lined cookie sheet

In a microwave safe bowl have your kids help you measure the chocolate chips and peanut butter.  Place it in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power and then stir.  Repeat this until the chips are completely melted.  Have your kids help you measure the noodles and dump those in the melted chocolate mixture and stir until they are well coated.  Now drop them on the wax paper lined cookie sheet by the tablespoon full, creating a little birds nest.  Let the kids press a few jelly beans into each nest and then pop them in the fridge for an hour or so until they set up.  Super yummy and peanut buttery!
