Chocolate Nests for Easter

Last year, on Holy Saturday, my girls and I started making our Easter Treats.  We began with Chocolate Nests.  I adapted the recipe, using candy melts instead of chocolate chips and evaporated milk, and they were so easy, turned out cute, and were loved by everyone on Easter Sunday.  We are planning to make them again this year!

Chocolate Nests 


1 bag Chow Mein Noodles
1 Bag Light Cocoa Candy Melts
1 bag of Egg shaped Candy  (We used Speckled Jordan Almonds)
1 package of Peeps (optional)


Melt Candy in Microwave or Double Boiler.

Mix the melted chocolate into the chow mein noodles.

Make sure all the noodles are coated with the melted chocolate. 

Shape into nests, placing on parchment paper, and top with candy eggs and peeps.

Try to decide which one you are going to have on Easter! ;)
