Clare Crespo of Yummyfun Kooking shares this Easter craft

We here at Bunch HQ are giant Clare Crespo fans. Her recipes are awesome. So of course we were super-pleased that she shared a very spring-like and Easterly recipe from her book, The Secret Life of Food.

You’ll need:

  • Vegetable oil
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3 Tablespoons butter (plus 1 teaspoon for your hands)
  • 4 cups chow mein noodles
  • 12 yogurt-covered almonds or jelly beans

1. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and coat well with vegetable oil.

2. In a saucepan, melt the marshmallows and butter together over medium-low heat. Stir until smooth.

3. Pour marshmallow mixture over noodles in a large mixing bowl, and stir until well coated.

4. Rub butter on your clean hands and form balls out of the noodle mixture. Place on sheet.

5. With the back of a spoon, press the center of each ball to make an indentation.

6. Fill nests with yogurt-covered almonds or jellybeans.
