    Mommy Diva's Note:

    Just my take on a favorite recipe!! There are so many out there but this is the way I like to make them!! When I made this today I yielded 6 large muffin tins, 6 small, and two left over "hand formed" nests. ;) Total of 14 assorted sizes - depends on your pans what you will yield. Cook time is chill time.

      Loved these so much this past Easter! I can't believe I forgot to review them. I made a couple large ones in a bigger muffin tin and then a full tin of the mini muffin ones. They all turned out so cute and delicious with the peanut M&M centers and they were tasty to boot! :) Thank you!

      No-one in my family really liked these. Too greasy and salty.

      Great recipe. I saw lots of recipes for this idea, but this one was the only one that included chocolate! The only thing I did differently was that I didn't form my nests in the muffin tin. I dropped them by generous spoonful onto wax paper so they were more "free-formed." I think they look much more natural that way. (See the pic I submitted.) I garnished with Peeps and M&M's speckled eggs.
