Melt the chocolate and let it cool slightly. Mix the chow mein noodles into chocolate
carefully so not to break them into smaller pieces. When the chocolate is cooled
sufficiently to handle, mold this mixture into small bird shaped nests. Before the mixture
has time to harden, place the jelly beans or small candy easter eggs in the bowl of the nest.
They will stay put when mixture cools. Easy and fun to make.Use your imagination as to items
you could place in the nests.
