Crunchy chinese noodles + Milk chocolate morsels + Candy robin's eggs (or jelly beans)
Here's what you do:
1. Melt a bag of milk chocolate morsels in the microwave and stir.
2. Add 5 ounces of noodles and stir until covered well.
3. To make a nest, spoon out a large heaping spoonful of the mixture onto a waxed paper covered tray or pan, making sure to leave a well in the middle for the eggs. They pretty much look like nests on their own. Repeat until nests are complete.
4. Put eggs in the nests.
5. Leave on waxed paper and refrigerate to firm up. Ready in minutes!
Make sure that they're not refrigerator cold when you serve as they'll be very hard and you'll actually believe that you are eating twigs. Room temperature and not melting is perfect. I wanted to use large eggs so I made six big nests. If you make smaller ones that might hold jelly beans or smaller eggs, you can probably get eight nests out of the recipe. Super easy and no-fail. They probably took ten minutes tops. And cute! You can also put little Peeps chicks in your nests instead of eggs.
Until next time,
