Birds of A Feather

Apparently, everyone and their mom's have had these amazingly easy and delish bird's nest cookies. I, for one, haven't. I haven't even been to Disney World. I mean, my parents even strapped on my roller skates and put me in front of the second floor staircase when I was seven. Let the chips fall where they may kind of thing. Okay. I made that part up, but that's how I picture things. I was deprived. 

Anyiwanttogotothemagickingdom, I've never made these little guys, but it's now my new Easter tradition. No baking, three ingredients, and yumholas. My kind of recipe.

Bird's Nest Cookies
Adapted from Art of Dessert
12 oz. pkg Chow Mein Noodles
12 oz. pkg Butterscotch Morsels (recommend Hersey's over Toll House)
90 Egg-Shaped Candies
2-4 boxes of Peeps (optional)
1 tube of white Icing (optional)

- Line a counter or baking sheet with wax paper. Microwave butterscotch morsels for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat the process until melted.

- Pour the chow mein noodles into a big bowl. Pour the melted butterscotch over the noodles. I used my hands to mix. Use a 1/4 measuring cup to portion out the mixture onto the waxed paper. They will be mounds, so push the middles in to make the shape of a nest. 

- Place the egg-shaped candies in the centers of the nests. I used some white icing on the bottoms of the candy eggs to attach them better to the cookies. Let them dry for about an hour. Or until they harden. Once they have dried, and you are displaying them, put a Peep on the side of the nest. Attach with a bit of icing. (I haven't taken a picture with those. I will add some soon.)
