Bird Nests

Happy Easter everyone! I've been working on a few fun things for my Easter dinner. I'm SO excited for dessert (aren't I always), because we are having these sweet little bird's nests! Ingredients: 1 can (12 oz) sweetened condensed milk 2 cups (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips 2 cans (5 oz each) thin chowmein noodles "Egg" candy - I used Cadbury Minis 1. Prepare a tray or sheet of waxed paper with nonstick spray. Set aside 2. Scrape condensed milk into a medium sauce pan, add chocolate chips. Place over low heat and stir often until chips melt and mixture is blended and smooth. 3. Put noodles in a large bowl, pour on chocolate mixture and toss with a rubber spatula until noodles are coated. 4. Drop generous 1/2 cups on prepared baking sheets. Lightly spray fingertips with nonstick spray. Form into nests by making a little indentation in the middle. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set. Tip: Can be made up to 3 days before serving. Store lo
