We whipped up these edible nests over the weekend for a fun treat.   Despite the snow on the ground, it made our house feel a little more spring-like!

However, when sending your husband to the grocery store to buy “butterscotch chips” be sure and tell him that despite the word “chips” being in the title, they will not be found next to the Lay’s and Ruffles in the chip aisle but rather on the baking aisle near the chocolate chips.  (And Babe, if you’re reading this…sorry!  Just had to tease you about it.).   :)

Here’s the recipe (adapted from this recipe):

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

1 can Chow Mein noodles (about 2 1/4 cups)

M&M’s (or any egg-shaped candy)

4.  Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper and add your M&M “eggs”.  Let them harden overnight (or at least 30 minutes to an hour).

 Despite my best efforts to stay far away from these babies, I did have one…okay two three.  :)
