No-Bake Chocolate Bird Egg Nest Cookies {Fun kid recipe!}

These No Bake Chocolate Bird Egg Nest Cookies are so simple and full of flavor. The best part is, there is no baking required, and the little ones will love making this with you.

Making these Bird Nest Cookies has been a tradition in our family since I was a little girl.
Every spring, we would always have a million birds in our backyard (mostly annoying magpies, but birds nonetheless) and we always knew when the baby birds had hatched from their eggs because you could hear their sweet little chirps.
Now these cookies are just a part of my springtime/Easter routine. They are so easy to throw together and something about the sweet and salty combo makes them so irresistible to me.
I seriously can’t stop eating them. My kids LOVE to help me make them- even my 2 year old gets into making his “bird nests” look just right.
It’s such a fun way to welcome spring, and the baby birds.

steps to make the perfect No bake chocolate bird egg nest cookies:

  • We love the chocolate and butterscotch combination for these, but you could easily just do chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter chips or whatever you prefer.
  • Once your chips are melted and fully combined, add your chow mien noodles and mix.
  • They can get a little messy and you should be warned, the little ones will lick their fingers and go back for more.
  • Hope you enjoy and have a happy spring.

what could i use instead of the whopper eggs?

I love this recipe because you can add your own little flare to it, depending on what you love. If you aren’t a whopper egg fan, here is what we recommend:

  • Hershey’s Cookies and Cream Eggs
  • Peeps (you may need to make the nests a little bigger)
  • Cadbury Eggs
  • Jelly Beans (I love the Starburst Jelly Beans)
  • Any chocolate that resembles eggs, or you could just eat them as is, because they are delicious.

what could i use instead of the chow mein noodles?

For this recipe, we used chow mien noodles. I know they probably don’t sound appetizing, but the sweet and salty mixture is actually delicious.

If you are looking for a replacement, here is what we recommend:

  • pretzels
  • cereal (Golden Grahams, Cheerios, Chex, Frosted Flakes, etc).
  • Graham cracker sticks

  • 1 (11-12 oz) bag milk chocolate chips
  • 1 (11-12 oz) bag butterscotch chips*
  • 1 (10-12 oz) bag Chow Mein noodles
  • M&M's, Jellybeans, Chocolate eggs, or any other kind of "egg-shaped" candy


  1. Dump your two bags of chips into a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Melt in the microwave on 50% power for 60 seconds.
  3. Stir and repeat until all chips are smoothly melted.
  4. Add bag of chow mein noodles to the melted chocolate and stir until all noodles are coated.
  5. Lay out wax paper and drop a large tablespoonful of chocolate noodles onto wax paper. Mold into a "bird nest" shape. Warning- your hands will get messy.
  6. Place a couple of "egg" candies on top of the chocolate nest. Let harden (if you can resist eating it! They are good when they are warm and gooey too!) and place in the fridge if you want them to set-up faster.


*Don't like butterscotch chips? You can switch them out for a second bag of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips. I have tried all of those combos and think that they are delicious!
