Chocolate Birds Nests - by Thanksgiving Point Emporium Kitchen

OMGosh!! How cute are these?!?!? I can't wait to make these for Easter!!

Recipe from Thanksgiving Point, Emporium Kitchen.

Chocolate Birds Nests

Makes 5 large or 10 small

* 5 oz. crunchy chow mein noodles (1 small can)
* 1 c. chocolate chips (½ a bag)
* 1 tsp. vegetable shortening
* Candy eggs (medium-sized speckled jelly-beans, or Cadbury Mini-Eggs in Easter pastels work nicely)

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Melt the chocolate and shortening together in a microwave or over a double boiler, stirring until melted. Allow to cool slightly, but do not let it set up. Stir in the chow mein noodles until evenly coated. Drop the coated noodles onto the baking sheet with a large spoon. For 5 large nests, form into circle about the size of an adult palm or half that amount for 10 small. Use your fingers to sculpt the noodles into a round shape and to form an indentation in the middle of the nest. Place eggs in the nest while chocolate is still wet. Place nests in the refrigerator to harden.

These look so cute and sound yummy. Do you think you could use pretzel sticks instead?
