No Bake Easter Cookies | Edible Egg Nests

easy no bake Easter cookies - adorable spring egg nests

Last week I had an idea, what if I made my no bake trail mix cookies into nests? If you can’t tell, I’m definitely feeling spring, even if snow is in the forecast this weekend. Plus, I was just really craving these cookies. I love all things sweet and salty, but the marshmallows take these no bake Easter cookies over the edge. I get the worst cravings for these cookies and they’re all too easy to whip up on a Wednesday afternoon. So, I made them into edible egg nests. I’m calling it, Happy Spring!

My only disappointment with these cookies comes from Cadbury. Why, why are you depriving us of pretty little robin’s eggs? Please take note, next year I need eggs in a pretty soft blue, okay? I knew if I made them with Peanut Butter M&M’s they’d never make it into the no bake Easter cookies, so I decided to make them with the classic Cadbury mini eggs our baskets were always filled with growing up.

In good faith, I want to disclose that this recipe uses butterscotch chips. I have found that some are very opposed to butterscotch like myself, but assure you if you’re a peanut butter fan, you’re going to be all over these cookies and would never know there was a hint of butterscotch in these cravable, addictive little egg nests.
