Bird Nest Candy for Easter

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Nests Recipe

This cute little Easter candy recipe is easy, adorable, and tastes great. Make them in mini muffin tins for candies, or large muffin tins for Easter nest cookies. Yield depends on what size you make them, but total this should serve 10-15 people. As a bonus, this ultra easy Easter candy recipe takes just 10 to 15 minutes to make.
Ingredients:
2 C. chocolate chips
2 tbsp. peanut butter (creamy is best)
4 C. crunch chow mein noodles, broken into small pieces
Chocolate Easter eggs or jelly beans, as desired
Butter or cooking spray
Instructions: 1. In a microwave or over a double boiler, melt chocolate halfway, stirring often.
2. Add peanut butter and continue melting, stirring often, until creamy and combined.
3. Remove from heat and stir in chow mein noodles until sticky and coated in chocolate mixture.
4. Let sit until just cool enough to handle (you don't want to burn yourself, but you don't want to let the mixture set up too much), about 5 minutes.
5. Meanwhile grease muffin tins (size of your choice) with butter or cooking spray.
6. Spoon chocolate/noodle mixture into muffin tins, making a well in the middle for your "nest."
7. Repeat until you've used all of your nest mix.
8. Chill nests inside muffin pans at least one hour, or until set. Remove and serve.
