Easter Nests

My daughter Maddie doesn't live by dates or months, but rather by holidays.  Here calendar year would look something like New Years, Valentines, Easter, her birthday, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  With such a holiday conscientious child I was reminded the other day how quickly Easter was approaching.  I thought I better get some recipes posted to celebrate this wonderful holiday.
These Easter treats are a great recipe to make with kids.  They are easy and look so cute.  And they make a great treat for your child's class or to decorate your Easter table.  Here's how...
1 cup milk chocolate chips
2 cups dry chow mein noodles
1/2 cup coconut
green food coloring
jelly beans or candy eggs
Line two cookie sheets with wax paper.  In a bow combine one drip green food coloring with coconut.  Stir until all the coconut is green.  
Using double boil method completely melt chocolate chips.  Stir in chow mein noodles & stir to coat.
Drop noodles by spoonfuls on wax paper, making an indentent in the middle with the back of the spoon.  While nests are still warm place a pinch of the coconut in the center.  Top with a couple of jelly beans, Robins Eggs, or even a Peep.  Allow to cool completely before serving.  Enjoy!
