A simple, fun dessert perfect for Easter. This is adapted from one I found on Recipezaar.

Chocolate Nests

2 cups chocolate chips
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
4 cups chow mein noodles
cooking spray

Heat water in double boiler over medium heat and add chocolate chips to top portion. When chocolate begins to melt, add peanut butter and continue to stir until creamy. Add chow mein noodles, stirring until completely coated.

On spread-out wax or parchment paper, drop a generous spoonful of the chocolate-covered chow mein noodles for each nest. Garnish with candies (I used M&M eggs) and Peeps.

Makes 10-16, depending on how big you make them)

The original recipe I read said to form the nests inside a muffin tin. I think free-forming them like this looks more realistic.

I was going to put a nest on each person's plate at the table, but before I could, my husband carved up the ham and started putting it on plates. So, I just served them with dessert after the meal.
