With Easter just past, there is often a plethora of leftover Easter candy laying around the house. These Marshmallow Bird Nests are a great way to use up some of those leftover sweets to make something even better!

Marshmallow Bird Nests


  • 1/4 cup half stick of butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 5 cups crunchy chow mein noodles
  • Optional: candy eggs


  • In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter and marshmallows, stirring constantly until smooth.
  • Add chocolate chips to the marshmallow mixture and stir until melted and mixed well.
  • Remove from heat and add the chow mein noodles, stirring to coat.
  • Plop down spoonfuls of the sticky mixture onto wax paper and shape into round nests. Every nest is unique, so don't worry about getting them perfectly round! Press down the center just a bit to make room for eggs if you want to stuff the nests.
  • If using candy eggs, press them into the center of the nests and then allow the nests to cool before eating.
