Ingredients:

1 Tblsp. solid shortening (Crisco)
1 large can (5oz.) La Choy thin chow mein noodles
1 bag pastel colored M&M peanut candy

Directions:
Directions:
Melt entire bag of chips and 1 tbsp. of shortening slowly in microwave or in double boiler on stovetop. If using microwave, heat full power in intervals of 30 seconds at a time and then less as chips begin to melt. You want the chips and shortening to be well blended and creamy and hot. DO NOT OVERCOOK!!! Immediately pour the can of chow mien noodles into the peanut butter mixture and toss lightly to coat noodles. Avoid crunching noodles. Using a spatula can help. Do this quickly, making sure the noodles are evenly coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper and gently form into the shape of a nest, leaving a hollowed area in the center in which you immediately place three M&M peanut candies for the "birds eggs". Helps to have two people! Each batch makes approximately 14 nests.
