These neat little nests, crafted from crunchy chow mein noodles and melted marshmallows, are perfect for nestling chocolate eggs or jellybeans and make sweet place settings for springtime celebrations. What a perfect Easter treat! My friend Diana was sweet enough to think of me when she saw these, and shared the recipe with me.
* 2 cups miniature marshmallows
* 1/4 cup butter
* 4 cups chow mein noodles
1. Butter a 12 cup muffin tin.
2. Combine marshmallows and butter over medium heat in a saucepan; stir until the butter and marshmallows have melted. Stir in the chow mein noodles, coat well.
3. Butter fingers and press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the prepared muffin tin. Refrigerate until firm.
