  • 1 package 16 oz. Chocolate Candy (I used CandiQuick, but you could use Wilton Candy Melts or your favorite Chocolate Candy.
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups chow mein noodles
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs


  • Melt chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave. Heat for 1 minute and stir to see if you need any additional time. Heat for 15-second intervals if not fully melted.
  • Combine all ingredients (except eggs) in a mixing bowl.
  • Stir well to coat all of the noodles.
  • Drop by spoonful onto wax paper. Wait about a minute or two and form into nests. The dip in the middle doesn't need to be too big, but make sure there isn't a hole in the nest.
  • Let harden.
  • Add eggs to your nests.
  • Enjoy!
