Chocolate Easter Nests
8 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
2 - 2 1/2 cups chow mein noodles
12 -18 small jelly beans, speckled malted milk eggs, or other egg shaped candy
Line a baking pan with a piece of aluminum foil, smooth the foil, and then butter or spray the foil with a non stick vegetable spray.
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Gently fold in the chow mein noodles, being careful not to break them.
Spoon six mounds of the mixture onto the prepared pan and, using your fingers, form each mound into a 4 inch (10 cm) nest shape. Make a small indentation in the center of each nest.
Place the pan, with the chocolate nests, in the refrigerator to set (about 30 minutes). Just before serving, remove the nests from the refrigerator and place 2-3 small jelly beans or other egg shaped candy in the center of each nest.
Makes about six - 4 inch nests.
