Easter Egg Nests Recipe

Dark Chocolate Pieces
Chow Mein Noodles
Jelly Beans

Melt the chocolate and let it cool slightly. Mix the chow mein noodles into chocolate carefully so not to break them into smaller pieces. When the chocolate is cooled sufficiently to handle, mold this mixture into small bird shaped nests. Before the mixture has time to harden, place the jelly beans or small candy easter eggs in the bowl of the nest. They will stay put when mixture cools. Easy and fun Easter recipe to make. Use your imagination as to items you could place in the nests.
