Chocolate Easter Nests:
Line a baking pan with a piece of aluminum foil, smooth the foil, and then
butter or spray the foil with a non stick vegetable spray.
Melt the chocolate in a
heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Gently fold in the chow mein
noodles, being careful not to break them.
Spoon six mounds of the mixture
onto the prepared pan and, using your fingers, form each mound into a 4 inch
(10 cm) nest shape. Make a small indentation in the center of each nest.
Place the pan, with the
chocolate nests, in the refrigerator to set (about 30 minutes). Just before
serving, remove the nests from the refrigerator and place some small jelly beans
or other egg shaped candy in the center of each nest.
Makes about six - 4 inch nests.
