No-Bake Easter Nest Cookies Recipe

These chocolate peanut butter nest cookies are the perfect treat for Easter long weekend, and the best part is they require zero baking!


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup pretzels, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate Easter egg candies

In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add milk, sugar, and cocoa and stir to combine while bringing to a boil. Boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add in peanut butter and vanilla, and stir until smooth. Stir in oats, chopped pretzels, and salt. Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto waxed paper and form into bird nest shapes. Press down the centre with your thumb so there will be a place for the candies. Let the nests cool completely. Place egg candies in the centre of the nests. Serve.
