No-Bake Biscoff Oatmeal Easter Nests

My Mom was at Trader Joe’s the other day when they were handing out samples of Biscoff Spread DSC_0495 and she said it was too good to pass up so she bought me a huge jar. Have you tried it? It has a similar consistency to creamy peanut butter and is made from Biscoff cookies.  Delicious!DSC_0492 It’s so indulgent I wasn’t sure how I’d use up the  one pound jar so I took to Pinterest to search for some ideas and decided to combine the recipes for chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies with the classic Easter nests with chow mien noodles, subbing Biscoff for peanut butter and chocolate and No-Bake Biscoff Oatmeal Easter Nests were born! They’re definitely on the sticky side so you want to spray your parchment or wax paper before you spoon them out and I recommend quick oats instead of old-fashioned as they’ll be less chewy/dense in the finished cookies.

What to buy (makes about a dozen cookies):

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup Biscoff cookie butter
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick cook oats
  • about 36 M&Ms or other egg-like candies

What to do:

  • combine butter, milk, Biscoff and sugar in a saucepan, bring to a rolling boil
  • after sugar mixture boils, remove from heat and add vanilla and oats, stirring to combine
  • spray wax or parchment paper with cooking spray and place 2 inch rounded spoonfuls of cookie onto paper, I used an ice-cream scooper which worked great
  • flatten a bit to get a nest look and place candies on top
  • refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to completely cool and help set
