Ingredients:  
8 squares (8 oz.) semisweet chocolate
2 T. vegetable shortening
1 c. crisp rice cereal
1 c. chow mein noodles
1/2 c. sweetened shredded coconut
miniature candy-coated chocolate eggs

Directions:
Directions:
Line 2 baking sheets with waxed paper. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate and shortening. Microwave on medium, stirring at 1-minute intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth, about 2 minutes. Gently stir rice cereal, chow mein noodles and coconut into chocolate mixture until thoroughly blended. Drop chocolate mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart onto prepared baking sheets. Using the back of a spoon, make an indentation in each spoonful of chocolate mixture to form a nest. Place chocolate nests on baking sheets in the refrigerator; chill until set, about 1 hour. Remove nests from baking sheets. Fill each nest with candy as desired.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When melting chocolate in the microwave, be sure to stir it halfway through the cooking time. Chocolate tends to keep it shape as it melts. Stirring it will prevent overheating and scorching the chocolate.
