Easter Bird Nests Recipe

After watching some Zoella vlogs I decided I needed to make bird nests...something I've never made before. I'm also not a celebrator of Easter, unless it is consuming far too much candy — Reese's eggs am I right? But let me tell you, these lil guys are so easy to make, you can find the recipe here, I'll also walk y'all through my process below.

I got all of my ingredients at Target, you need: 
Chow Mein noodles, peanut butter, milk chocolate, Cadbury mini eggs

I used a mix of milk and semi-sweet chips because the recipe called for a 
little over one bag, however, I wish I had just done the milk chocolate, I think the 
semi-sweet made it a little bitter. 

It'll take a while in the microwave, it took me 2 minutes & 20 seconds.

Put it in your best non-stick bowl and mix everything together. 

I think mine had a little too much chocolate.

Also, they are not easy to mold...in my opinion. I had to sit at my counter and 
really work to get them to look like nests and retain a 
little spot in the middle for the eggs. 

Then you let them sit for quite a while. I waited about four hours, 
then put them in the fridge for 30 minutes before taking photos. 
Then I left them on my countertop throughout the weekend for a snack.
 Also, I took some to work and people enjoyed them so I would recommend them! 
Especially if you have kids, I think they are a great school centers treat.
