 Recipe Information  
Category: Snacks
Recipe Created By: Tracy Martin


4 cups chow mein noodles
1 cup safe chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut, soy, or other nut butter

Melt chocolate chips and safe peanut/nut/soy butter on stove. Remove from heat, and stir in chow mein noodles. Press into muffin tin, making an indentation in the very center. Chill in refrigerator. Turn them out, put little jelly beans or egg-shaped candies in the indentations.... you've made birds nests!


Verify ingredients of chow mein noodles and chocolate chips. This can be made using any safe "nut" butter

To avoid wheat and/or gluten, this can be made with gluten-free rice crispies instead of chow mein noodles.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen.  You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
