10 little birds...

My parents just recently got 10 baby chickens to raise for eggs! They are so precious and I never knew how fascinating watching these little things could be.  AND here's a recipe for a twist on the traditional haystack... nests!


1 cup(5 ounces) semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 cups (4 ounces) chow- mien noodles or pretzel sticks
1 1/4 cup slices almonds
eggs- almond or peanut m&m's
sweetened coconut
powdered sugar

1.Line baking sheet with wax paper
2. Using a double boiler, melt chocolate and butter together, stirring until smooth, gently stir in noodles and nuts.
3. Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto paper, make an indention in the top for eggs. Sprinkle nests with powdered sugar and coconut, then place eggs!
4. Let clusters set about 1 hour
