Easter Egg Nest Cookies

This is a different variation on a tasty little treat my Mom used to make at Halloween that we called "Crashed Broomsticks". Instead of making those.. I shaped these into little nests and added mini eggs!!

Warning: These are addicting!

2 cups butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup butter
4 cups chow mein noodles
1/3 cup skor baking bits
Approx. 6 bags of mini eggs

Mix the butterscotch and chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a large bowl. Microwave on medium for 3 minutes (stirring after 1 minute). Stir until the mixture is completely melted and smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients (aside from the mini eggs) and mix well.

Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper and press down the middle a little bit so it can hold mini eggs nicely. Add 3 mini eggs to each cookie to resemble a nest.

Refridgerate for 30 minutes (I also store them in the fridge to keep them nice and firm - if you like them softer let them sit out for a few minutes before eating them).
