Springtime Treats


I’m just about done with winter, and since spring is just around the corner, I though that I might make up some yummy treats to help welcome it in! These Springtime Nest treats are super sweet, super cute and really easy to make. I remember my Mom making them every Easter for our family get-together’s, and I thought that I would try my hand at them as well. Fair warning, once you start making them your kitchen will smell delicious! The mix of melted butterscotch chips and peanut butter will have you drooling for these treats. If you try them out for yourself, please let me know how they turn out in the comments! Here’s the recipe:


1 cup butterscotch chips

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/3 cup sugar

2 1/2 cups chow mein noodles

2 cups cornflakes, lightly crushed

Jelly beans or malted milk egg candies


  1. Combine butterscotch chips, corn syrup, peanut butter and sugar in large microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals
  2. Stir in chow mein noodles and cornflakes until evenly coated. Quickly shape scant 1/4 cupfuls of mixtures into balls; make indentation in centers to create nests. Place 3 jelly beans in each nest. Place nests on waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature to set
