Easter Egg Nests

Here is a simple recipe for a fun Easter treat.  We are still home trying to do our part to flatten the coronavirus curve.  So we need to fill our time with fun activities.  I mean you have to do something besides argue with your kids, right?  Just kidding.  Maybe.  Anyway....  

This is one we do almost every year, but this year we almost didn't make them.  Last time I was at Walmart I couldn't find the chow mein noodles.  Things just aren't in stock as they normally would be.  But as luck would have it, my daughter found some at the back of our cabinet and they weren't stale.  Good find!  

Easter Egg Nests


One can or bag of chow mein noodles
One bag of butterscotch chips
Cadbury mini eggs (or jellybeans)

Melt butterscotch chips in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between.  Once chips are melted, pour in chow mein noodles.  Using two spoons, carefully scoop out mixture and place on wax paper or plastic wrap, creating a nest shape.  While the nests are still melty, place 1-3 eggs on top.  Let set for at least a half hour before eating.
