Egg Nests Snscks

Recipe from: Amancay Maahs


1. Butter the cups in the muffin pan.

2. (In a 2 qt saucepan) combine marshmallows & butter. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted (6-8 minutes.)

3. Stir in noodles, until well coated.

4. With buttered fingers, press mixture on the bottom & up the sides of each cup of the muffin pan. (you may find the need to re-butter often, and move quickly & carefully as the mixture is very sticky & hot!)

5. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.

6. Remove from the pan (you may find it easier to sit the pan in warm water to loosen them up first!)

7. Fill with Mini-Eggs!
