Bird Nest Cookies

It’s Spring, Earth Day and close to Easter, what better time to make Bird Nest Cookies for the children.  These cookies are so easy to make, you need three things. Chow Mein Noodles, Chocolate/Peanut Butter or Butterscotch Chips based on preference and candy miniature eggs (or Jordan Almonds or Jelly Beans if nothing else available).

Melt the chocolate chips in microwave or on stove then pour and stir into chow mein noodles.  Spoon coated noodles onto parchment lined cookie sheets and add your eggs.  Place cookies in freezer or refrigerator to harden and set for at least 2 hours before serving.  All there is to it and kids love them.

These will make wonderful treats tomorrow while we celebrate Earth Day and learn about nature.
