Directions

  1. Using a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat.
  2. Add in the marshmallows and stir constantly until the mixture is completely melted.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the chow mein noodles. Stir until completely combined (it will take a few minutes to get everything thoroughly coated).
  4. This mixture is very sticky, so in order to make the nests, you’ll need to butter your hands or apply non-stick spray. Take a handful of the mixture and shape it into a nest of approximately 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Set the nest upside down on parchment paper. Repeat until you’ve created 8 to 10 nests.
  5. Allow the nests to sit for about 30 minutes and then re-shape if they’ve started to lose their “nest” shape. Then allow them to continue to firm up. You may need to repeat this a couple of times.
  6. Add one Peep to each nest and surround it with jelly beans & Enjoy!
