If the word "food" doesn't pop into your mind when you think about a holiday, then you and I are probably in a fight. Holidays are great because they bring people together and what's a better activity to do together than to eat delicious food? Probably delicious treats that also are pretty and festive! When I was growing up, my best friend's mom would always make these nests and I always thought that they were adorable. They left such an impression that I started making them every year as an adult. I've made a few adaptations over the years but they are as cute as ever. The peanut butter flavor paired with the peanut butter filled pastel M&Ms will not disappoint. If you don't like peanut butter than you and I are also in a fight. I can't wait for you guys to try these!
1 3/4 cups of fluff
4T unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup of peanut butter spread (or creamy peanut butter)
1/4 cup white chocolate chips (leave these out if you don't like things really sweet)
2 5oz. cans of Chinese chow mein noodles
In a large mixing bowl, melt the butter (and the white chocolate if you are including it).
Add in the peanut butter and fluff and stir to combine.
Add in the chow mein noodles and gently fold them into the mixture.
Spray a muffin tin with coconut oil or another nonstick spray. Then, take a ball of the mixture and press it into each muffin tin slot until it forms a nest.
Chill for at least an hour. Then, dust it with powdered sugar and fill it with the M&Ms.
