Author:
Serves: 11 -12
Ingredients ...
  • ½ cup Peanut Butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 2 packets of Changs Original Fried Noodles
  • 1 packet Candied or Chocolate Eggs (I used M & M Speckled Eggs)
Method ...
  1. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Allow Peanut Butter to soften if it’s been in the fridge and add it to a small saucepan with the chocolate chips.
  3. Melt gently over a very low heat, stirring constantly to combine the two ingredients as they melt.
  4. Once fully melted, remove saucepan from heat and add Noodles. Mix to coat the noodles in the chocolate mixture but stir gently so the noodles don’t break up too much.
  5. Once mixed drop large dessertspoons of mixture onto prepared trays. Use two spoons to shaped the nests into a round shape. Once shaped press down in the middle to create the hollow that will hold the eggs.
  6. Refrigerate on trays for at least an hour or until set firm. This recipe will make approx. 11 - 12 nests.
