Egg-Ceptional Easter Nests

Ingredients

  • Wax paper
  • 1 2/3 to 2 cups (11- to 12-ounce package) Nestlé Toll House Butterscotch or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cans (5 ounces each) chow mein noodles
  • 30-60 Nestlé NestEggs, any flavor

Preparation

  1. Line trays with wax paper.
  2. Microwave morsels in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on medium-high (70 percent) power for 1 minute; stir. The morsels may retain some original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in peanut butter until well blended.
  3. Add chow mein noodles to morsel mixture; toss until coated. Using ice cream scoop that measures about 2 rounded tablespoons, scoop and drop onto prepared trays then immediately shape into nests. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Before serving, place 1 or 2 candy eggs in each nest. Store prepared nests in covered container for up to 1 day.
