Bird’s Nest Candies
Makes about 2 dozen
1 12 oz. package chow mein noodles
12 oz. milk chocolate morsels
Egg shaped candy (I used Cadbury mini eggs)
Place morsels in a microwave safe dish and heat for about 30 seconds or until melted, add chow mein noodles and mix until combined. Take about 2 Tbls. Of the mixture and put into a mini muffin tin and shape as a nest, repeat, place in the refrigerator until they solidify and you can pop them out. Should one break simply reheat in the microwave. Place chocolate egg in the center. (I sprayed the nests with edible gold food coloring spray that I purchase at Michaels).
Sunnyside Chocolate Eggs and Bacon
Makes about a dozen
1 bar white chocolate (I used Ghirardelli)
Yellow m & m’s
Place white chocolate in a double boiler as the microwave tends to burn the white chocolate (can use a pot with simmering water and stainless bowl over that if you don’t have a double boiler.
Once the white chocolate is melted, spoon on to a sheet pan lined with parchment. Place 2 pretzels at the end and a yellow m & m in the center. Do not place the m & M on the chocolate until it has cooled a bit, if it is too hot it will crack. Place in the refrigerator until solid and peel off.
