Easter Peeps in a Nest
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 5
  • 1 – 6oz. package of chow mein noodles
  • 20 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 35 jelly beans
  • 5 marshmallow peeps/chicks
  1. Melt the chocolate by placing it in a heat safe glass bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir until fully melted then remove from the heat and stir in the chow mein noodles until they are completely coated with the chocolate.
  2. Using a food scoop or ½ cup measure, place mounds of the chocolate/chow mein noodle mixture on a parchment lined baking sheet. Use a spoon to flatten each mound slightly and make an indentation in the middle to mimic the shape of a nest. Place one peep in the middle of each nest and then surround it with 6 or 7 jelly beans.
  3. Let the nests sit undisturbed for several hours until set.
  4. Yield: 5 Easter Peeps in a Nest.
