Butterscotch Krunchies-Easter Style

One of the Christmas candies my family makes is the Butterscotch Krunchies.  I was perusing Pinterest one day and saw these cute little chocolate bird's nests candies with whopper eggs in them and thought I could do that with our Krunchies.  I have no idea where the actual receipe came from, we have been making them for so many years we just make them from memory.

1 pkg. Buttercotch chips
1 large (or 2 small) container La Choy chow mein noodles (the crunchy ones, not the ones to be cooked, trust me)
6 squares almond bark
1 carton Whopper mini eggs

For the Christmas candy variety you would use one can of spanish peanuts and mix that in to the melted mixture.

Melt the butterscotch and almond bark in the microwave stirring after each minute until melted.  Mix in the chow mein.  Spoon tablespoons sized nests onto tin foil and press 3 eggs into the middle. I made this a little bit too big, but it should make around 2 dozen. Let set and enjoy!
