Equipment

  • silicone muffin pan or liners OR traditional muffin tin
  • heat safe glass bowl

Ingredients

  • cooking spray or butter for greasing the muffin tin This is only if you are NOT using silicone
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 oz butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup creamy all natural peanut butter I like all natural, any peanut butter will do.
  • 5 oz chow mien noodles
  • 1 package of Hershey's milk chocolate mini eggs or candy of your choice

Instructions

  • Grease the muffin tin if using a traditional one. Silicone needs no prep.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips over a double boiler, or in a heat safe glass bowl over a sauce pan with simmering water. Alternatively, you can use the microwave, using 20 second increments, stirring in between.
  • Add the peanut butter and combine well.
  • Fold in the chow mien noodles and gently stir to coat.
  • Fill each of the muffin cups with the mixture, making a well in the center.
  • Cool in the refrigerator until hardened, about 30 minutes.
  • Fill each 'nest' with a few mini eggs.

Notes

  • If you don't want to mess with the stove, you can melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips in the microwave. Use 20-second intervals and stir each time until they are completely melted. 
  • Silicone muffin pans, or silicone liners work the best, but, you can also use a regular muffin tin, just oil it first. Once hardened, let them sit a few minutes at room temperature before removing them. 
  • If you do use a silicone tray, be sure to place it on a baking sheet BEFORE filling it. Much easier to move around that way.
  • In a hurry? Pop them in the freezer to cool, about 10 minutes or so will do it!
