Happy Easter - Bird Nest Cookies

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead ... 1 Peter 1:3

Happy Easter everyone!  We are going to my parents for the day, they have goats and cows and chickens and ducks!  Its going to be fun!  Since we're just doing a simple dinner, I wanted to bring a Easter-y treat.  I saw these on Pinterest and was super excited to make them for Easter. They are very similar to the Haystacks my grandmother makes for Christmas.  And there are only a few ingredients.

All you need are:
1 - 12oz bag of butterscotch chips
1 - 12 oz bag of chow mein noodles
1 - bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs

Before starting, I sorted the Mini Eggs by color.  Yes I am a dork, and also look how you few pink ones you get compared to the blue & yellow!  Which was ok though, because we have been seeing a bluebird in our yard this week, so I went with the blue & yellow eggs anyway.  There were also a million white ones, but I didn't use those either.

Ok, cookie time. First melt the butterscotch chips in a glass bowl in the microwave.  I also mixed in a scoop of creamy peanutbutter at this point (maybe about 1/4 cup).

When that is fully melted, then you mix in the chow mein noodles.  (One thing would change for next time, is I would pour the melted peanutbutter and butterscotch over the chow mein noodles. It was kind of difficult to get them fully coated when I added them on top of the mixture without breaking too many while I stirred.) Once the chow mein noodles are mixed in, I used an ice cream scoop to drop on to wax paper.  Add some of the Cadbury Mini Eggs to the center of each one and you're done!

  1. You will also need to do your research and learn how to determine if the replica watches sale you are choosing is real or fake.

There is no denying that breitling replica sale are definitely a way to go about making that fashion statement. Many celebrities and average people can be found wearing this piece of jewelry. They are definitely rolex replica sale at their best. There are different brand names of diamond watches. Many of them have taken the classic diamond and given a modern twist to them. There is no determining the best fake rolex sale out there. The best all has to do with the preferences of the individual. One person may think this replica watches sale is the best while the other individual may think that one is the best.
