Nutella Marshmallow Nests


Hey Peeps!  It's Easter, and after seeing some cute little marshmallow nests, we thought we'd make some ourselves, but with a few of our own twists.  Well, you know how I LOVE Nutella?  We thought we'd make them special with Nutella and chocolate.  They came out sooooo cute, and yummmmy!  We made sure to perch a Peep and some Robin's Eggs candies on top, and we love them!  Even better, they are easy and fast to make.  It probably took us abou 30-40 minutes.  You should give them a try!

Prep your muffin tins by spraying with non-stick spray

The Star Ingredients

Melt and Stir butter, marshmallows, chocolate chips & Nutella

Stir until well-combined

Add the chow mein noodles and rice crispies, then stir some more

Stir until well-combined, like this

Spoon about 1/4 cup into each muffin cup, and press down in the middle with the back of a spoon to make an indent

Now for the fun part, decorating the nests!  You can use Peeps,
Robin's Eggs, or Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs.

Look how cute!

 Mom says they make a great centerpiece for Easter

Here's how to make them:
Ingredients:
3Tbs Butter
1pkg Marshmallows
1/4 Cup Nutella
6oz. Chocolate Chips
3Cups Chow Mein Noodles
2Cups Rice Crispie Cereal

Marshmallow Peeps, Robin Eggs, Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs

In a large saucepan, melt the butter, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and Nutella over medium heat, stirring until melted and combined.

Stir in Rice Crispies and Chow Mein Noodles until they are all coated.

Spoon about 1/4 of the mixture into each muffin tin cup, press the middle down with the back of a spoon to compress each one, and make an indentation. 

Decorate nests with Peeps and Robin Egg candies.  Have fun, and enjoy your creations.  Happy Easter!!
