You only need three ingredients: chow mein noodles, butterscotch morsels and mini egg-shaped candies. The original recipe actually called for semi-sweet chocolate chips but I thought the butterscotch morsels gave the nests a more realistic appearance.

  1. My students make these using a blob of peanut butter and the noodles emphasizing that it takes a bird a long time to construct a nest. the eggs are from a package of multi colored jelly beans or jelly bellies.

  2. My mom used to make these when I was a kid and I loved them! We used both butterscotch and semi-sweet chocolate chips though, and the coloring was about the same.

  3. I really want to make these for a bake sale but I’m apprehensive about the butterscotch/chow mein combination. Do these taste as good as they look? Thanks

  4. I made these with my girls and they loved them so much we are making them for their classmates. I bought some Easter candy bags from Box and Wrap so we can individually wrap each nest. These bags have bunnies on them..they are much cuter than just plain cello bags. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  5. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I had them as a kid and have been wanting a recipe for years. I never knew they were so easy. I am going to make these with my kids for Easter.
