These White Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Egg Nests are a quick, easy, no-bake cookie you can whip up in minutes. They are a great spring treat to serve around Easter. And just look at them! They are adorable!

This recipe was created when I wanted to make traditional haystacks (made with butterscotch chips), but I didn’t have the butterscotch chips and my store was out of them as well. So, I checked my pantry to see what I did have instead. I had white chocolate chips (I keep them on hand because these Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies are my husband’s favorite!), and I had peanut butter. I couldn’t go wrong with the classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter, right?
