  • Easy No-Bake Easter Dessert Recipe

    Holidays are a great “excuse” to get together with loved ones and eat delicious food. No matter how old you are, it is still exciting to have a festive and cute treat on a holiday, and it’s even better when you get to contribute your baking skills to the table. But, if you’re — let’s say, “conventionally challenged” — we’ve got the most adorable, delicious, and simple-to-make Easter dessert for you!

    These Easter nests are so easy to make, you don’t even have to bake them. As if that wasn’t enough reason to hit the kitchen, they are also oh so pretty {you better hope your fam is ready to be impressed}. It’s supposed to be over 80 degrees on Sunday and we think that matching your pastel M&Ms to your pastel sundress sounds like a great game plan. This Easter Sunday, share this recipe from The Cozy Curator’s kitchen:

    Ingredients:

    1 3/4 cups of fluff

    4 TBS 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

    Powdered Sugar

    Pastel M&Ms

    Directions:

    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.

    The last very important step: Enjoy!
