  • 1 package Chocolate Candy melts
  • ΒΌ cup peanut butter Homemade Peanut butter
  • 3 cups chow mein noodles
  • 1 package Chocolate Mini Eggs


  1. Melt chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave. Heat for 1 minute and stir. Continue to heat for 15-second intervals until the chocolate is fully melted.

  2. Then add the chow mein noodles in a large mixing bowl and pour the chocolate and peanut butter over the top. Stir until all the noodles are completely coated.

  3. Using a large tablespoon, drop onto wax paper. Wait about a minute or two and form into nests. Press the end of the spoon a little into the nest to create a dip for the little eggs to rest. But make sure there is no hole on the bottom.

  4. Place three chocolate eggs on top before it hardens. You have some time here, so no need to rush.

  5. Let the little nests harden. Pro Tip: place them in the fridge or freezer to harden quicker. Once hardened they are ready to eat.
