Simple Easter Fun and Sunday Swapping

Easter Nests - a classic, people have been making them at least as far back as I remember in the 70s, and they're still just as delicious as ever.

We used chowmein noodles and buttescotch chips. Most people use 2 bags of chips to 1 bag of chowmein noodles but that's way too sweet and goopy for us. We prefer 1 bag of chips and most of a bag of noodles. 

Microwave the chips in a large heat-proof bowl.
 Stir in the noodles.
Drop spoonfuls into lined cupcake pans.
Make a depression in the middle. 
Add candy - jelly beans or cadbury mini-eggs are great for this.

And now onto Sundays Are For Swapping

Those chow mein noodle egg nests are adorable. Where have I been since the 70s?! I've never seen them.

Thank you and the boys for sharing your tips.

oh my goodness- a trip down memory lane! I loved those little nests as a child!! I've never made them as an adult- how smart to use the cupcake pans!
