Yummy, Spring-y and Easy
Most Easter candy comes from a handful of companies so it's not surprising that it all tastes the same even though it's packaged under different names and labels.
When a company makes a product for another company it's called "private labeling". It's done all the time from pasta to laundry detergent and there's nothing wrong with that.
But, when it comes to Easter candy, most of it is cheap, waxy chocolate all dressed up with fancy foil wrapping and stylish bows.
You deserve better!!!
Can't make candy, you say?
Too much trouble?
Here's a little recipe that will change your mind forever.
Easy, yummy and not the least bit expensive plus you'll impress the socks off your gourmet friends!
Easy for Easter. Special for Spring.
Great gift for your gardening pals.
Simple enough to make for wedding or shower favors, too!
|Chow mein noodles are|
available in the Oriental
food sections of grocery
stores every where
Special equipment - parchment paper and a cookie sheet
3/4 cup Chinese chow mein noodles (the regular thin kind)
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Measure the chow mein noodles and count out the malted balls.
(You have to work quickly once the chocolate is melted so measure and count now.)
I buy a couple of extra bags of the pastel, malted milk eggs at Easter and freeze them (unopened) in a sturdy container. This way I have the eggs if I want to make the nests at other times of the year - like for party favors or gifts.
