Chocolate Peanut Butter Bird's Nests Cookies

With Easter right around the corner I thought these would be a cute little snack the kids can make themselves and get them into the Spring time mood.  I remember making these in school when I was a kid and I was happy to pass down the recipe to my kiddos.  They had a great time making them but probably an even better time eating them when they were done!


  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups chocolate chips ( can use milk chocolate or semi sweet )
  • 2 + 3/4 cup chow mein noodles
  • 1/2 bag jelly bean eggs, cadbury eggs, or jelly beans


In a large bowl, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute or until smooth.  Stirring after 30 seconds.

Add in chow mein noodles and stir to incorporate, making sure all the noodles are covered in the peanut butter/chocolate mixture.

Place round tablespoons of the chow mein mixture onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Press down slightly in the middle.  Place 2-3 eggs on each nest.

Place in the refrigerator for about an hour to harden.


*Happy Spring*
