Easter Treats

For those who read my blog, I am sure you think all I do is bake/cook, eat & vacation... I do much more than that on a daily basis. I work hard (so I can play hard) and I workout regularly, and STILL do not eat any of my treats. I find licking the bowl is much more rewarding than eating the actual treat. But none-the-less, here is my latest creation for the work crew, just in time for Easter.

RECIPE: Easter Nests (also called Haystacks without the eggs)
Ingredients:
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter, I used natural peanut butter and used slightly less
- 1/2 cup peanuts, you could use crunchy peanut butter and forget this
- 2 cups chow mein noodles
- Reese's peanut butter cup eggs, only available at Easter. You could also use jelly beans or the other egg shaped candy.
Preparation:
- Microwave the butterscotch chips & peanut butter on 50% power for 3-5 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients and blend to coat noodles.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper and add your choice of candy

YUMM!!! I might have to run back to the store and make some of these to take for our Easter weekend in Nebraska! Thanks :)

p.s. I have NO IDEA where you get the willpower to not eat all this stuff. You're crazy!
