Butterscotch Nest Candy Easter Recipe

 SIMPLE Steps:
  1. Using a microwave safe bowl, melt the butterscotch morsels in the microwave at 30 second intervals. 
  2. Combine the melted butterscotch and the chow mein noodles.
  3. Line the muffin tin with the paper muffin cups.
  4. Spoon some chow mein mixture into each muffin cup.
  5. Press a few egg candies into the center of each “nest.”
  6. Let set until butterscotch is hardened.
  7. Enjoy!

These are the perfect Spring or Easter recipe.  And they’re super-easy for kids to help with.  As you can see, Sawyer did all of the work.  Priscilla was in the background putting egg after egg in her mouth!
