ADD chow mein noodles to morsel mixture; toss until coated. Using ice cream scoop that measures about 2 rounded tablespoons, scoop and drop onto prepared trays then immediately shape into nests.

Easy, quick, tasty, and cute nests!
I just made these little nests and the whole process only took about 15 minutes! I halved the recipe and put 2 mini malted milk eggs in each nest. I ended up making 30 nests which will be great for the Easter egg hunt I am hosting tomorrow!
Bringing Back Memories
I love this recipe. It tastes good and it is quick and easy. The kids can help with the cookies so you can work fun family time into baking as well. For me I always associated these cookies with Christmas, I had never thought to put an easter egg as the decoration. I will have to try them out this year.
Oldie but goodie
This recipe takes me way back, my mother always made these at the holidays but added nuts to them and called them noodle nut bites. They were always a hit with friends and family.
Have made these a few times and they really are a hit. You can even use them to decorate a cake or have your kids help make them. Will make these again during the year.
Great Easter project
Just made these with my 5 year old. She loved them, and it was easy to do. Taking them to family and friends this weekend!
