I'm definitely not much of a baker, but this Easter, I really want to step up my game just a tad and whip up some cute and festive cookies for my son instead of using the store-bought cookie dough with pictures of bunnies and chicks stamped on it like I usually do. (I'm the world's biggest slacker when it comes to holiday treats. Fail.)
And that's why I'm super excited to try this easy and adorable Easter Nest Cookie recipe from Pure Sugar, and the best part is, you don't even need to turn the oven on to make these things.
This is seriously one of the simplest yet very cute and creative cookie recipes out there, and since they aren't supposed to be perfectly shaped, they're practically impossible to screw up. (Winning.)
My son is going to be quite impressed when I bust out a batch of these babies.
Easter Nest Cookies
7 oz. marshmallow fluff
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
5 oz. chow mein noodles
1 cup chopped M&Ms
Peanut M&M's, Cadbury mini-eggs, or jellybeans
Powdered sugar (optional)
Combine marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and melted butter. Mix until well blended. Add noodles and chopped M&Ms.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet and shape to form nests. Let stand until firm.
Dust bottom with powdered sugar (optional). Fill with peanut M&M's, Cadbury mini-eggs, Robin's Eggs (malted milk candies), or jellybeans.
See? Told ya it was easy-peasy.
