Springtime Candy Haystack Nests

My husband and my boy love to watch a show called “Agents of Shield” together. It’s their special “boys only thing” they do.

When they are having their boy time my daughter, Ciera and I usually take off for another room in the house, and do girlie stuff together. We usually craft, paint nails, bake (sometimes all of the above!) but tonight we did something a little different.

First we went back into my room, snuggled up on my bed together, and I listened to the sweet sweet sound of her read to me- in Spanish to boot!! (thanks to her Spanish immersion program at school!)

SO amazing to hear her read. So crazy how fast she has learned this year.

After she read to me for a while we decided to make a fun, easy, no bake springtime treat-

Springtime Candy Haystack “Nests”-

You’ll need:

1 package of chow mein noodles

1 cup of butterscotch chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

and some mini Cadbury eggs for garnish

Place 1 cup of butterscotch chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter together in a large microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir.

Now, add 4 cups of the chow mein noodles to the chip/peanut butter mixture

and drop by the spoonful (mine were very large spoonfuls) onto wax paper. Top with 3 different colored Cadbury eggs.

Pop them into your freezer for just a few minutes for them to set.

How CUTE are these?!?! They would be perfect for a fun Easter brunch dessert. And seriously, they are too easy to make! Have fun, and please, get the kids involved. Ciera did almost all of this project herself, and was just thrilled when they were complete.

PS- Here’s a little hint- you can make these ahead of time, and pop them into your freezer until you are ready for them. They freeze perfectly! ENJOY!!
