This featured creation is from Amy at Momma Hen's Frugal Life and it was just so cute, I just had to try it out.
First, assemble your ingredients.
THREE CUPS Large or Mini marshmallows
THREE TBSP Unsalted butter (which I didn't have, but what-ev)
HALF TSP of Vanilla
TWO TSP of Peanut Butter
FOUR CUPS Dry Chow Mein Noodles
Small Egg-like Candy (I used Cadbury Mini-Eggs because they rock.)
First, you're going to grease a muffin pan and set it aside.
Then, in a pot, you're going to combine the marshmallows, butter, and peanut butter like so...
After it melts, you're going to add the vanilla and the dry noodles:
Remove the pot from the heat, apply vegetable oil to your hands (Forget the Pam, it doesn't work as well. Tried it.), and press the mixture into your muffin cups when the mixture is just cool enough that you don't burn yourself, but not set up yet.
Stick the pan in the fridge and wash up your dishes while you wait for them to cool completely OR sit on the couch and stuff your face with the Cadbury Eggs while watching HGTV... Whatever works for you. The Cadbury Eggs were GREAT. ;)
When they're firm to the touch, put your little eggs in the little nests and admire your work.
Almost too pretty to eat.
This recipe should yield you fourteen, but I only got twelve out of it. But then again, I'm definitely no cook. Just ask Scott. :P
And then sit back, smile, and wave while you accept the Mom of the Year Award.
|Even though you totally just staged your kid for your blog post. :P|
But at least you feel like you accomplished something today - and put a smile on your kiddos' faces... Until the dryer buzzer goes off and reminds you that you still have a load or two of laundry to fold.
Oh well. It was great while it lasted. Right?
