Using fried noodles in Chocolate Easter Birds Nests

It might seem strange to use fried noodles in a sweet dessert… but trust me on this one! The noodles give the perfect amount of crunch – plus they balance out the sweetness of the chocolate and Easter eggs. 

I used Changs brand of fried noodles in this recipe (you can buy them from most major supermarkets). If you can’t find that particular brand, any type of fried noodles will work fine.
