Peanut Butter Chocolate Birds Nests Treats

Scripture to Live By:
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
Matthew 28:5-7

I really like the Spring of the year when the flower begin to bloom again and the birds begin to built their nest in preparation of laying their eggs and bringing forth new life.  I like seeing the trees get their leaves and seeing the cattle with their off springs.  I so enjoy the warmer weather and look forward to summer.  
The birds are making their nest in all the houses we have put up for them.  You can see them at Homes for Nesting Birds  and Purple Martian House  Yet they have taken a liking to a flower pot that is attached to our garage.  So for this year, I will wait until their babies leave the nest to plant flowers in it.  They have also chosen a candle holder I have hanging on my back patio.  It is located approximately four feet from my door coming into the house. The birds that are building their nest here are house finches.  So I guess the house is a proper place to nest.  We enjoy the birds so much.  Bald eagles must be nesting close by because of the morning we watch them fly over the river that is attached to our yard.  This is a wonderful time of year.

I also enjoy making Peanut Butter Chocolate Birds Nests Treats,  to eat and share with others.  

  I am making these for our Awana clubbers and Junior Church children.  Perhaps you would like to make them, as well.  Here is a list of the ingredients  you will need along with the instructions to make them.  

3 Tablespoons of butter or margarine
4 1/2 cups of miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup of peanut butter (I use crunchy peanut butter)
4 cups of chow mien or rice noodles (I prefer rice noodles - they are smaller)
1 cup of speckled jelly beans or candy eggs. 

In a large saucepan melt butter and marshmallows in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, remove from microwave oven and stir.  
Place back in microwave oven and cook for another 1 1/2 minutes.

  Remove from Microwave oven and stir in peanut butter and chocolate chips. Stir until chocolate is melted.  
Pour over chow mien or rice noodles until coated well.
Butter hands well and them take about a golf ball size of coated noodles and shape into bird nests.
Lay them on wax paper to set. 

Put three speckled jelly beans or chocolate eggs in each nest.  Let them cool completely.

Recipe makes approximately 15 treats.  

After they have cooled down. Store in a sealed container

They look cute served on Easter Grass.

Hope you have a blessed Resurrection Sunday, as you celebrate our Risen Savior.
