Notes

This Easter, Nestlé is providing chocolate lovers with something they can feel good about. Nestlé continues to expand its commitment to sustainable cocoa and has now bought enough certified, sustainable cocoa to produce its entire Easter chocolate collection. For more information, click here.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (11 to 12 ounces) Nestle Toll House Butterscotch or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • ¼ Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cans (5 ounces each) chow mein noodles
  • 30-60 Nestle NestEggs candies, any flavor

Directions

Line trays with waxed paper.

Microwave the morsels in a large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on medium-high (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in the peanut butter and mix until well blended.

Add the chow mein noodles and toss until coated. Scoop and drop the mixture onto the prepared trays using an ice cream scoop that measures about 2 rounded tablespoons; immediately shape into nests. Refrigerate the nests until ready to serve.

When you’re ready to serve the nests, place one or two NestEggs candies in each. Store the prepared nests in a covered container for up to 1 day.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
