Directions

  1. Place a sheet of waxed paper or foil on a large cookie sheet. In a large bowl, combine the noodles and the cereal and set aside.
  2. Melt white chocolate or vanilla candy-coating in a double boiler over hot water (or in the microwave). Remove from heat and pour over noodles and cereal.
  3. To form nests, mound 2 tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet. With the back of a teaspoon, make an indentation in the center of each mound. Press 3 or 4 candies in the center of each "nest". Allow to set at room temperature until firm.

I love this recipe... I use it every easter-it's great for kids to help with and I like using the the robin egg chocolate candies in the middle... sometimes I even throw a peep on- very festive! thanks for the recipie

Fun! I followed the recipe exactly - and added a candied espresso bean to my nests with the chocolate covered raisins. It ain't so easy to form the nests with a spoon, let alone 'make an indentation.' I ended up just piling my nests with my fingers - messy, but more effective. Thanks for the recipe!
