These are so great as cookies, that I knew the kids would really like these! I was right, they ate them like little piggies! This is an Easter time treat for us that will be made again!

This recipe is great very child friendly even though my baby is still too young to help out too much.. she just wants to put her hands in everything then in her mouth haha. I made this on easter sunday and took no time to make. Make sure you use good quality chocolate. Keep the spray oil on hand as I found after moulding each nest I woulod need more on my hands and Place in the refrigerator when done otherwise they are soft and are'nt nearly as great! TY Mum2Rose

So easy to make! I topped mine with mini gourmet jelly beans and they went over very well with the kids doing an Easter Egg Hunt at my house!

Made this as a recipenap to take to church for the Easter Sunday dinner on the grounds. The kids and I had a blast making them. We made one batch with white chocolate and the second with milk chocolate almond bark because that is what I had on hand. Our nest did not turn out as picture perfect as I'm Pats however; I do not think the kids at church will mind. Thanks for sharing this fun recipe Sarah! Made for the 27th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

I made these with the DS (24YO with autism and intellectual impairment) and we had great fun doing so. He took them to his music recreation day were they thoroughly enjoyed them. We did various sizes and in the extra big one I put candy easter eggs and in the rest jelly beans. I did end up putting the bowl with the mix over some hot water to keep it pliable but then realized if I scooped out with a spoon and used my hands to shape the warmth from my softened it enough to work without problems so took it off the hot water (but putting the bowl over did help me mix things up better to coat the noodles). Thank you Mom2Rose for a recipe which was a lot of fun and fed our creative side, made for Recipe Swap #27.

I made this for a baby shower last month for my sister and these were a hit!! They are easy to make, taste delicious and all the ingredients are probably in your pantry - lol!!

Mom2Rose - I am loving going through all your recipes and having such great luck!! These were excellent! I made these for my daughter's class and they loved it. I thought the ratio of chocolate to noodles was perfect and we couldn't get enough of them!! We will definitely be making these again!! Thanks for posting it Mom2Rose and Happy Easter.

I've made something similar to this before. It's better with about half the noodles and no sweetened condensed milk. Both dilute the chocolate taste too much. They were more crumbly also given the ratio of noodle to binding mixture. I'm sorry.
