Fun Easter Treat and Activity...Edible Nests

Easter is coming soon, and I wanted to do a fun/easy project with my kiddos. We made our Easter Nests for our family night activity last Monday.  These yummy "bird's nests" are made just as you do marshmallow krispie treats.  Gather your ingredients.:  Chinese noodles, a bag of small marshmallows, and 1/4 c. butter or margarine.  Plus, you'll need a bag of jelly bean eggs and waxed paper to cover your counter.

In a large bowl, empty your noodles and set aside.  Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add the marshmallows.  Stir constantly until all melted.  Pour the melted goo over the noodles, and stir to cover completely.  Dump piles of gooey noodles, about 1/4 cup each, and form into a nest shape. Add your eggs to your nest, and allow to set up.

There you have it!  A fun, easy project for Easter that your kids will love.  They are actually pretty tasty, too!
