  • Melt white chocolate or vanilla candy-coating in a double boiler over hot water (or in the microwave). Remove from heat and pour over noodles and cereal.

  • To form nests, mound 2 tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet. With the back of a teaspoon, make an indentation in the center of each mound. Press 3 or 4 candies in the center of each "nest". Allow to set at room temperature until firm.

Fun! I followed the recipe exactly - and added a candied espresso bean to my nests with the chocolate covered raisins. It ain't so easy to form the nests with a spoon let alone 'make an indentation.' I ended up just piling my nests with my fingers - messy but more effective. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
