I wanted to share my love for them with the kids, so I decided to make them some bird nests treats, complete with a cute little chick on top. They were so excited when I showed them the finished product. Queenie ate 2, sneaking one while I was throwing things into the recycle boxes, on our front stoop. That's how good they are. The colorful jelly bean eggs, just add a great cuteness factor, no one can resist.
Peeps Bird Nest Treats
1 Pkg white Wilton Melting rounds
1/2 C peanut butter chips
1-8oz pkg chow mein noodles (the orange crunchy kind)
1 Pkg favorite color Peeps chicks
20-30 colorful jelly beans
In a large pot, melt the white chocolate with the peanut butter chips, over low heat. Once melted, add the chow mein noodles, stirring carefully; not to break them up too much. Take spoonfuls of chocolate covered noodles and place them on a baking sheet, lined with wax paper. Arrange noodles into nest shapes. Place 1 chick onto each nest and place a few jelly beans around the bottom of the chick. Cool in the freezer for 5 minutes, until set.
