Little edible birdie nest. Cute! Right? Who knew you could mix marshmallows and chow mein noodles up into a tasty spring treat. I realize chow mein noodles sound weird but they basically taste like pretzels without all of the salt. I saw a photo of these sweet treats years ago but never got around to making a batch. This was the year. The kiddos and I experimented with the traditional Rice Krispies Treats recipe and everyone was very pleased with the results. Cute and tasty. We will be sharing these bird nests this weekend at church to raise money for Cambodia. And of course we’ll make them when hosting our family Easter gathering.
