Edible Crafts: Chow Mein Bird Nests
The intricate flavor of chow mein noodles makes the perfect foundation for edible bird nests with jellybeans, especially for an Easter party. This is one of the more sophisticated edible crafts and should be carefully supervised by parents. It calls for one cup of butter, one cup of brown sugar and one small can of chow mein noodles.
The butter and brown sugar should be heated in a saucepan until the sugar completely dissolves, then the pan should be removed from the heat and noodles added. The nests are formed by pressing the noodle mixture into muffin tins. The nests can be topped off with the jellybeans after cooling.
Edible crafts can done at any time of year for holidays and other themes. They are a fun, educational and very tasty way to pass the time.
