HERSHEY Chocolate Easter Nests & A Hershey’s Candy Giveaway #BunnyTrail

I have a very yummy recipe for everyone just in time for Easter. Now even though we very carefully watch what we eat, it is nice to have a treat every once and a while, and holidays is the time that usually happens around our house. When we were little my mother would make chow mien noodle cookies and they were delicious actually one of my favorite cookies, one year she made the cookies into nests and filled with HERSHEY’S Candies. So I decided to take some of the HERSHEY’S goodies that we were sent and make our own HERSHEY’S Chocolate Easter Nests. Chocolate Easter Nests Ingredients:

  • Chow Mien Noodles 10 oz
  • HERSHEY’S Chocolate Chips 16oz
  • Butterscotch Chips 16oz
  • Hershey’s Candies to fill your nests (ex. WHOPPERS ROBIN EGGS, ROLO Candies, Jelly Beans, HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolate)
  • Wax Paper or cookie sheet


  • Melt HERSHEY’S Chocolate Chips and Butterscotch Chips on the stove or microwave until the chocolate chips and the butterscotch chips are melted together, stir together until thoroughly mixed.


  • Pour in the chow mien noodles into the chocolate mixture, use spoon to mix the chocolate until all the noodles are well coated.

  • Take a spoonful of the covered chow mien noodles and set it on wax paper or cookie sheet, form into the shape of a nest. Repeat until all of the chow mien noodles are used up.


  • Put nests into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or leave them out for about an hour to let them harden.
  • Fill nests with goodies! ex. HERSHEY’S Kisses Milk Chocolate, WHOPPERS ROBIN EGGS, ROLO Candies, Jelly beans, or any other candy you choose, we used WHOPPERS ROBIN EGGS, and a HERSHEY’S Kisses Milk Chocolate.

  33. I loved it when my little sister and I would try to make our own confetti eggs. We would get eggs from the fridge and make a hole on top to remove the egg whites and the yolk (which was used to make scrambled eggs). Then we would dunk the eggs into water with food coloring. After it is colored and dry, we would cut up colored paper(sometimes colored by us) and call it the confetti. We would then stuff the eggs with the confetti and cover the hole on the egg with paper. Then we would go outside and break our eggs!

    • I almost forgot! I am probably going to try to make the peanut butter easter bonnets, because they are cookies with peanut butter and Reeses which are so yummy! I would also like to make the Easter critter cups, because they are so cute!

  55. Never thought of using noodles as nests – thank you for sharing with Pin worthy Wednesday Nicole

    • Amberjane,
      Thanks for stopping by, it was my mothers idea years ago. They were originally just chow mien noodle cookies and they were always one of my favorite growing up. One time she made them into nests for my kids for Easter, that’s what started the idea. Now we make them since she isn’t around to do it anymore. Thanks for hosting. Have a blessed weekend!!

  56. Nicole, this would be a great contribution to Food on Friday: Easter Foods over at Carole’s Chatter. Please do bring it over. Cheers

    • Carole,
      Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving a comment. I had not heard of your linky party, I’ll have to stop by and check it out!! Have a blessed weekend!!

  57. I’ve been seeing these nests around for Easter but can’t help thinking how great it would be to go along with our bird studies in the spring. I’m pinning these for our science unit!

    • Joanne,
      They sure would be great for bird unit studies too, I never though of it though! Thanks for the great idea!! Thanks so much for pinning and for stopping by. Have a blessed weekend!!
