Chocolate Nests

Mmm... chocolate.

I can't really call this a recipe, they are just chocolate covered chow mein noodles.  So good. So easy.  Here's what you need to make them:

Seriously. Two ingredients.  That's it.

I used 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips for about 2 1/2 cups chow mein noodles.  I melted the chocolate chips in the microwave, stirred in the noodles, then dropped them in nest-like mounds on parchment paper.

I made 16 small nests then placed them in the refrigerator to firm up for a few minutes.  Both kids insisted on helping, justifying the mess of chow mein noodles on the floor and the chocolate fingerprints everywhere.  I hope one day I won't need to sweep my floors five times a day.

Do you know how hard it is for a one year old not to lick the spoon?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Mmmm...those look so good! I'm going to wait until well after Easter to try something like this though - we'll have enough chocolate in the house :)


I would love to hear from you. Thanks for your comments.
