easy bird's nest cookies
three ingredients, only three-one bag of butterscotch morsels, one can of chow mein noodles and your eggs of choice whether it is jellybeans, malted robin's eggs, or in my case, little cadbury candy coated chocolate eggs.
zap the morsels in the microwave beginning with one minute, stir and keep zapping in 15 second intervals till it is melted, not scorched! watch it closely. stir in the chow mein noodles, folding and crunching till completely coated in butterscotch. spoon onto parchment/waxed paper or a silpat. shape like a nest with a little indention in the middle. place your eggs pushing them down slightly to make sure they stick when dry. let them air dry about thirty minutes and that's it. enjoy.
ps-i happened to have the large bag of chowmein noodles, so i just dumped what i thought was enough. i am thinking that the can will be a perfect amount. i used probably 2/3 of the bag.
