Bird Nest Treats

These are all over Pinterest and other websites and everyone does them different. I'll include the recipe I used below. The kids had tons of fun making these, especially Skylar. They thought they were so cool. I thought they'd totally eat them up quick but I'm pretty sure adults ate most of them.
 Skylar held out till the end.
Bird Nest Treats
12 oz bag Chow Mein Noodles
10 to 12 oz bag Butterscotch, peanut butter or chocolate chips (or a mixture)
Egg shaped candies

In a microwave safe dish melt chips for 30 seconds, stir then melt for thirty more seconds, stir until melted (melt a little longer if needed).  Stir in the Chow Mein noodles, because I had 10 oz bags I only used about 3/4 of the bag. I wish I had used only 1/2. Scoop out with a 1/4th cup measuring cup onto wax paper, parchment paper or silicone mat to form the nest. Place 3 eggs in the center of the nest. I wanted to try different kinds so I got Cadbury Eggs, Robin Eggs and Jelly Beans. They all look cute. I didn't see this done on any sites until I went to post this but some people just scoop the nests into cupcake tins, I think this would make them stay together better because mine were falling apart a little. That's one reason I wish I had used less noodles, taste is the other reason.
