Springtime Nest Cookies

If you’re looking for an easy sweet treat to celebrate spring or Easter, I’ve got you! These only take a handful of ingredients and come together in no time. You can also play with the recipe a bit to find out what you like best!

You’ll need

  • a bag of butterscotch chips OR a bag of regular chocolate chips OR 1/2 bag of each (feel free to use a bag of each if you like it extra sweet!)
  • 2/3 c. of smooth peanut butter
  • a bag of chow mein noodles OR 1 c. crushed cornflakes OR 1 c. crushed rice krispies
  • 1/3 c. quick oats OR 1/3 c. shredded coconut (unsweetened is best)
  • candy eggs

Combine the butterscotch/chocolate chips with peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 second increments until everything is melted. Stir together.

Stir in all other ingredients EXCEPT for candy eggs until well combined. Line 2 cookie trays with wax or parchment paper. Spoon out dollops of the mixture and immediately press candy eggs into the top. Let cool on the counter or chill in fridge. Makes approximately 24 nests.
