Easter Egg Nests

Easter No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Birds Nests


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • Waxed paper
  • 1 bag Cadbury Mini Eggs


In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the spoonfuls, immediately make indent in the center until it looks like a nest, let sit until cooled and hardened.

I doubled this recipe and made the nests for my family for Easter this year. For the eggs I used Cadbury mini eggs because they simply are the best, but you could use any form of eggs or jelly beans. I guess now that im a mom I get to make cute little holiday themed things like this on a regular basis. Boy am I excited. :)

We used the smaller nests for our sunday school class that we teach. it's our first week as their new teachers and we are very excited!

a big thank you to my two cooking assistants:
