Spring-time is one of my favorite times of the year and these Easter Egg Bird Nests are a fun and festive way to celebrate the season. I tend to bake a lot around the holidays, it’s just what I do. Technically this treat isn’t baked, but they are super cute, so I just had to make them.
Crunchy, sweet nests of Chinese Noodles coated in chocolate and peanut butter with a delicious peanut butter egg nestled inside. I came across them on the Tasty Kitchen section of The Pioneer Woman’s website and decided to make them for my family for Easter. I love a good recipe that doesn’t involve a long list of ingredients. Happy Easter, I hope you’ll enjoy them!
