How to have fun this Easter…
Grab some easy ingredients and throw ’em all together. We’re talking four ingredients, friends. Easy as pie. Actually, way easier than pie. Do it!
Whatever way you’re spending this Easter weekend, I hope it involves much food, love, and happiness. And most importantly, chocolate!
Chocolate Nests (from The Pastry Affair)
Makes 8 nests.
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
3 cups chow-mein noodles
Mini-eggs (or jelly beans)
In a saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate and peanut butter and stir until smooth. Pour over top of the chow mein noodles and stir until evenly coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed or parchment paper. Try to create “nest” shapes as you work, leaving an indentation on the top of each nest. Allow the nests to set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before decorating with chocolate eggs or jelly beans.
PS. The fun level of this activity is exponentially higher when you have help from little hands. 🙂
