The finished nest wrapped in cellophane or on a platter as part of your dessert selection is certain to captivate your guests young or old!
Combine it...
Melt it...                        
Shape it...
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk          2 - (5-ounce) an thin chow mein noodles 
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips 
Line 2 baking sheets with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.  Scrape milk into saucepan.  Add chocolate chips.  Cook and stir until blended and smooth.  Place noodles in a bowl.  Pour chocolate sauce over noodles.  Stir until coated.  Drop generous 1/2 cupfuls onto prepared sheets.  Lightly spray fingertips with cooking spray.  Pres a well into nests making a depression in the center to hold candies.  Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set.  Peel off foil.  Fill with candies or Jordan Almonds.  Yield: 8 - 10 depending on size - fewer if larger nests are made!
