Feature: Easy Birds Nest Cookies: Fun for Cookie Recipe for Spring
Different cooks use different melting chocolate flavors to make these fun cookies, but the one thing they have in common are egg-shaped candies, pressed into the middle of the cookies after they are formed or dropped.
This easy version is a great cookie recipe for kids. Can you say "No oven"?
You'll melt the flavored chips in the microwave and then mix in the chow mein noodles (the birds nest "straw") by hand. Kids love to drop the nests onto baking trays and press the eggs into the centers before they set.
