Have you ever made these with the thin Chinese Noodles? (Not Ramen Noodles) Just melt the chocolate and add the dry thin noodles righ to the chocolate and stir gently. I mix well, put out on a parchment paper lined pan. Scoop into nests. Right away I add jelly beans and Marshmallow bunnies or chicks to the nest. Let them dry over night. I serve each of my guests one as a table decoration, too.

These were made for a church event during the Easter period. They sold out within a few minutes and looked very attractive . Very little work prep wise.
