Cadbury Easter Mini Eggs: I like to use these for my Easter eggs that go in the nest.
How To Make Birds Nest Cookies
Step 1. Add the chocolate chips into a large heat-safe bowl and melt in the microwave for 1 minute. Make sure to mix every 15 seconds until smooth. Add in the powdered sugar and peanut butter and combine again until smooth. Put in the noodles and fold into the mixture using a rubber spatula until fully mixed and coated.
Step 2. Use nonstick spray to grease a standard-size muffin tin and wipe excess oil off using a paper towel. Add the mixture in scoops into the muffin tin using a rounded tablespoon. Make an indentation in the middle for where the eggs will go. Arrange 3 eggs in the center of the nests and set them in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes until firm. Remove and serve!
