So, remember those “creepy crawlers” from Halloween? THAT post is how this post happened.

Birds Nests l

While standing at the store with the can of chow mein noodles in-hand, I panicked and picked up another one – “just in case” (do you ever do that?). Turned out, one can was plenty and I bookmarked this idea for spring.

How cute?

And just as easy as those crawlers. Simply melt your chocolate, fold in the noodles and shape into a nest. Pop in a few mini eggs and let set.

I used Cadbury mini eggs and took my cue from the colors in the bag but literally ANYTHING goes. You can use your favorite white/dark/milk chocolate, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips – you name it.

And if you can get your hands on some gluten-free noodles they’d make a perfect Passover treat too!

“Birds’ Nests”

12 ounces melting wafers or chocolate chips (I used 3 ounces each of yellow, pink, blue and white melting wafers and divided the noodles into fourths)
5-ounce can fine chow mein noodles
mini chocolate eggs or jelly beans

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Melt the wafers in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Remove bowl from heat and add the noodles. Toss to gently but thoroughly coat. Scoop into 12 mounds and use a spoon to shape into “nests”. Place a few eggs into each and let set before serving. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
