Vegan Chow Mein Easter Nests

Here comes Peter Cottontail and an Easter induced sugar high.  Even as an adult I get excited to get an Easter basket and enjoy all the treats.  Chow Mein Easter Nests have always been one of my favorites.  I buy chow mein noodles once a year specifically to make these delicious Easter nests.  There are many different recipes out there, I went for a quick and easy 3 ingredient recipe.
Chow Mein Easter Nests

All you need to make these Vegan Chow Mein Easter Nests is:

4 cups of Chow Mein noodles

2 cups of 365 Vegan chocolate chips

1 cup of Earth Balance peanut butter

Place the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Place bowl in microwave on high for 1 minute.  Stir and repeat until they are melted and mixed.   Combine the Chow Mein noodles with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture.  Gently mix until the noodles are fully coated.

Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat.  Form noodle nests on the cookie sheet. Refrigerate until firm.

3 ingredient Chow Mein Easter nests

Once they are firm you can eat them the way they are or add jelly beans, peanuts or any of your favorite Easter goodies.  I put in little raw carrot cake “eggs”.

What is your favorite Easter treat?

    • Maria~ So glad you found it. I hope then enjoyed the treats.

  • Those ae so cute andway easy to make too!

  • That looks yummy.

  • My favorite Easter treat used to be plain old peeps – oh, the “creative” things we used to do with them besides eating, such as sticking them to the dashboard in the car! Anyhoo, this looks like a great recipe and as a “wanna be and trying hard” vegan I appreciate it!

    • We used to love to microwave the peeps and watch them expand.
      Finding support is the best way to stick to a “vegan” or plant-based diet.
      Get on twitter and pinterest and find peeps (lol) that are doing the same as you.
