Feature: Birds Nest Cookies: Easy No-Bake Cookie Recipe to Make With Kids

Birds Nest Cookies – they’re an easy and fun no-bake cookie recipe, especially in the spring!

Different cooks use different ingredients to make these fun cookies, but the one thing they have in common are egg-shaped candies, pressed into the middle of the cookies after they are formed or dropped. (Tip: get them on sale now that Easter is over.)

This easy version is a great cookie recipe for kids. Can you say “No oven”? You’ll melt the flavored chips in the microwave and then mix in the chow mein noodles (the birds nest “straw”) by hand. Kids love to drop the nests onto baking trays and press the eggs into the centers before they set.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 15-30 minutes
Makes about 3-4 dozen cookies
