Notes

RECIPE NOTES AND TIPS
  • I used the Changs fried noodle brand in this recipe. You can use any fried noodles you like. 
  • Choose a good quality chocolate as the better the chocolate, the better your birds nests will taste.
  • Use a creamy store-bought peanut butter (crunchy or smooth). Avoid homemade or natural peanut butter as they're not as creamy.
  • You can use any mini Easter eggs you like. I like to use Cadbury mini speckled eggs as they have a beautiful pastel colour.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. 
  • Freeze in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Place in the fridge to defrost before serving.
