Food Craft. Edible Egg Nests.

My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather. ~Terri Guillemets
I had forgotten this old favorite until I found myself in the Asian Food isle of my grocery story and happen to notice that almost ALL of the chow mein noodles were gone!  It then dawned on me why...this Easter classic treat :-)
There are recipes out there for these, but I just threw my own together using this:

1) one bag of large marshmallows (the pic shows mini - either would work)
2) one bag of chow mein noodles
3) two tablespoons of butter
4) something for your "eggs" (not pictured!  I used Cadbury eggs)

In a big pot, I melted the butter under low heat and threw in the bag of marshmallows, stirring until they melted completely.  Then I threw in the bag of chow mein noodles, stirring until completely covered with oooey gooey marshmallow...mmmmm. 

I scooped some mixture onto a silpat covered cookie sheet and some into a sprayed cupcake pan - when I do this again I will only use the cupcake pan.  It gives a more uniform look, which I like better than the free-form that the cookie sheet produced. 
Once they cool a bit, butter up your fingers and press a little "well" into the nest to hold your eggs.  Then put your eggs in there and enjoy!
