Birds Nests for Easter

1 cup of butterscotch chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup of sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 cup chow mein noodles
2 cups chex cereal, lightly crushed
assorted candies such as malted eggs and marshmallow chicks

Combine butterscotch chips, syrup, peanut butter and sugar. Microwave in 30 second intervals till smooth. Stir mixture into noodles and cereal until coated. Quickly shape small balls into nests and add chocolate eggs. Makes about a dozen nests


  1. We made more like two dozen nests. They didn't want to hold their shapes until the mixture cooled a bit.

  2. They were cute as cute can be...and so was (is) the birthday gal!

  3. I saw where someone else made some, and I think she used chocolate chips in place of the butterscotch. "Reece's" birds nests, anyone?

  4. They are adorable! And is that a little Longaberger I see there?

  5. Keen eye, Barb! You're right!
