No Bake Bird’s Nest Cookies – Great for Easter AND Spring

Chocolate Bird's Nest Cookies

My friend Holly loves to cook.  She thrives on making treats that are adorably cute, as well as tasty!  I asked her if she’d start letting me share some of her creations with you and she said yes!  She brought these to our church’s Easter Party they had for the kids.  They were soooo cuate!

No Bake Chocolate Bird’s Nest Cookies


  • 1 (12 oz) bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 1 (12 oz) bag of butterscotch chips or peanut butter chips
  • 1 (12 oz) bag chow mien noodlesI
  • M&Ms or Jelly Beans


  1. Melt chocolate chips and other chips in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in chow mien noodles.
  3. Spray muffin tins lightly with Pam.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls into a greased muffin tin and mold into nest shapes.
  5. Let them sit until firm.  (You can put in the refrigerator to speed it up).
  6. Place eggs and/or Peeps on top.

Please note.  You make large cookies in regular size muffin tins or smaller ones in the small muffin tins.  The ones pictured are the smaller muffin tins.  If you use the larger ones, you could use Peeps in them for a bird on top.

Holly’s note:  If the chocolate seizes up while melting, you can just add a bit of shortening to it.

FREE Printable Easter Savings Recipes & Grocery List

The following post is brought to you by Favado.  Any opinions expressed are 100% my own.  

Easter is right around the corner (April 20th to be exact).  Do you know what you’ll be serving for Easter dinner yet?  We typically get together with my side of the family and have the traditional Easter fixings of ham with lots of delicious sides!  After we eat, we head outside to hide Easter eggs filled with candy and treats and we let all the kids (14 in all this year!) go and find them.  It’s always a great time and we make some precious memories together!

Did you know that there’s an easy way to find out the lowest prices on Easter foods like ham, potatoes, eggs, produce, and candy?  You can, with the Favado App!  A few months ago, my sister showed me the Favado App on her phone and I was so impressed that I downloaded it onto my iPad.

Why Do I Like the Favado App?


The main reason I like it, is because it allows me to look at my favorite stores and see what the best deals at those stores are.  It saves me time and money both, by matching current coupons with the sales at the stores.  I live in a rural community and don’t have many stores to choose from, but Favado even feature MY stores.  Stores like Walmart, Dollar General and Aldi!  These are stores I frequent on a regular basis!  In order to find your local stores, all you have to do is enter your zip code and the App will tell you all the deals for your area and show you where to print the coupon (if there is one).  It’s really cool!

Because Favado wanted to make your Easter meal really simple and affordable for everyone, they’ve created a FREE Easter Recipes & Grocery List for you to use in your meal planning! Each of the recipes calls for commonly used ingredients, that will most likely be discounted the week before Easter.

Delicious food, delicious savings…
