Here's a novel little recipe for making edible bird's nests which you can then fill with jelly beans or chocolate eggs.
just darling and very good flavor. I made 2 batches; first batch as written in the muffin tins, and found that the nests are quite thick and big. Made the second batch with the suggestion of Breeze and added a few tbsp of peanut butter. With the second batch, I just free-formed them onto parchment paper. No sticking at all, and with the fingertips wet, they were easy to mold into little nests making them a little smaller and got more out of the batch. Used 'peeps' rabbits in some, marshmallow chicks in others, and cadbury pastel chocolate eggs. I like the chocolate flavor with the nest. Love the versatility of this recipe. Could also add some butterscotch morsels to the marshmallow/butter mixture, or chocolate chips. So cute and easy! Nice presentation on the Easter goodie trays. thanks for the recipe. - 06 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
What a fun recipe. I have made these for years but have always added a little peanut butter to the mixture. This has always been a big hit :-) - 25 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was a hit at my daughter's preschool Easter party. I put the jelly beans in while the noodles/marshmallow were still warm and they stayed put very well. - 07 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
