No Bake Haystack Cookies - { Easter Edition }

No Bake Haystack Easter Cookies Faith and Fitness BlogIf I’m being 100% honest, I’m not actually into BIGGG social gatherings. I like to stay in my bubble, and if the crowd gets too large I have a mini { massive } panic attack. However, one way I can be bribed into big parties is… FOOD. Typical. Themed parties are the best kind of parties and these cute Bird’s Nest “Cookies” are perfect for any Spring/Easter parties you may have coming up.No Bake Haystack Easter CookiesWhy? Well,

one: they are super cute.

two: they take like zero time and only 4 ingredients.

three: they’re bite-sized! (Maybe 2 bites hehe)No Bake Haystack Easter Cookies Faith and Fitness BlogNo Bake Haystack Easter Cookies Faith and Fitness BlogMaybe it's just me, but I love tiny foods. I like to graze and pick at foods when I’m at a potluck or tailgate… or anywhere I can get away with it.

I’m the weirdo reaching for the broken chunk of brownie or the reason there’s a random 1/3 of a cookie gone. I even go as far as making my boyfriend make me a “baby” pancake every time we make pancakes. Sorryyy but I just want to try it all! No Bake Haystack Easter Cookies Faith and FitnessNo Bake Haystack Easter Cookies Faith and Fitness BlogSO, back to the "cookies" -- If you’re into butterscotch or have a thing for peanut butter you will adore these little guys!

P.S. – Not a butterscotch gal? Sub white chocolate or peanut butter chips and get the same haystack effect. (The peanut butter turns the white chocolate a pale brown) YUMM.

Festive + Delicious Bird’s Nest Cookies

  • 11 oz. butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 12 oz. chow mein noodles
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs
  1. Stir the butterscotch chips in a large saucepan over low heat until melted.
  2. Add a little bit of the peanut butter to the chips to keep the texture smooth and from burning. (Especially if you have white chocolate which burns easily!!)
  3. Remove from heat, stir in the rest of the peanut butter until smooth.
  4. Add chow mein noodles and stir until evenly coated.
  5. Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper & shape into nests. Let cool until set.
  6. Top nests with mini eggs.

(Makes approximately two dozen cookies – amount will vary depending on the size you make them)
