Easter Egg “Nests” Recipe

Happy Saturday!

Despite setting an alarm, Derek and I slept in until 11:40 this morning! I couldn’t believe it. I haven’t slept that late since undergrad. I think the insanity of the last few months is finally catching up with me.

A few hours later we left Durham and headed to Wilkesboro, where Derek’s family lives. It’s a quick trip since we have to head back tomorrow afternoon, but I’m glad we could make it to celebrate Easter. It’s our first holiday as a married couple!

After we arrived, I made these delicious little Easter egg “nests.”


These were SO easy to make. If you’ve ever made haystacks before, it’s exactly the same except you add Reese’s Pieces Eggs. Enjoy!


Easter Egg “Nests”Β 


  • 1 11oz bag of butterscotch chips
  • 2 to 4 Tbs. peanut butter
  • 6 oz show mein noodles
  • Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Pastel Eggs
  • Wax paper


  1. Put butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. (It took me about 1 min 30 seconds total.)
  2. Add chow main noodles to the melted butterscotch and peanut butter mixture. Mix well.
  3. Scoop out 1 to 2 heaping spoonfuls of the mixture and place on wax paper.
  4. Gently push noodles into a nest shape and place Reese’s Pieces eggs in your “nests.”
  5. Allow the nests to cool for 20 to 30 minutes before eating.
