Wanna make something easy and cute AND yummy…these Chocolate Nests with Tiny Eggs are both!
These are super easy and really kinda fun to make! Wouldn’t they be cute to have at each place-setting on Easter Sunday!?
This is probably a recipe you already have but I do a little something different…
Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies…(Nests!)
1 Bag of TINY Robin Eggs (Candy coated Chocolate-Malted eggs)
2 Cups sugar
**Less Than~1/2 Cup Cocoa (Nests turn out a lighter color if you use a little less than 1/2 cup!)
1 Stick butter (8 Tablespoons)
1/2 Cup milk
1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla
3 Cups Oats (Add a hand-full more if the consistency is too runny.)
3/4 Cups Peanut Butter
**2 Palm-fulls of Butterscotch Chips** (you can omit this…but it’s yummy!)
Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk over medium heat.
When mixture starts a roiling boil, stir and boil for one full minute.
Remove from heat…
Stir in: vanilla, oats, peanut butter, and butterscotch chips.
***Complete one nest and egg cookie at a time***
On wax paper…
Use an ice-cream scoop to make small balls and shape carefully and quickly into little nests.
Add 2 or 3 tiny Robin Eggs…press to secure the eggs!
Happy Tuesday Before Easter Peeps!
Happy Weekend my friends…xo
