An easy fun treat for the kids to make for Easter!


1 1/4 cups of  chow mein noodles small can
1/2 cup chocolate chips
assorted small colored jelly beans

Melt chocolate chip for 1 minute in a glass measuring cup in the microwave, add noodles. Make round nests in a circle on top of a wax paper lined cookie sheet immediately place three jelly beans in the middle. Refrigerate. Before serving, pile fake grass on a large plate arrange your nests, add peeps around or stuffed chicks.

SO cute! What a fun Easter project for wee ones~

Dan said...

Very cute (and cool). I'd replace the fuzzy chicks with peeps so they could be eaten too, but then that's me and loving sugar :-) Not serving peeps is probably better for the kiddies.

These are one of my favorite easy treats to make for holidays. The can be changed so easily just by substituting jelly beans for different colored sprinkles to match the holiday colors - and they are so yummy! :-)

These are cute. But you retail people are always rushing the holidays. Can't we celebrate St Patrick's Day before you push Easter on us?

Cute! If I had kids, I'd give it a try with them.

Denise said...

What a clever use of chow mein noodles--the nests are so shiny and pretty! What kid could resist them?
