I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chocolate Chow Mein Nests

Made it through the ice storm that took out our electricity for 4 days! Luckily we had a campstove and BBQ for cooking and could whip up these no-bake cookies for Easter.

300 g (about 10 oz) chocolate chips 
2 cups dry chow mein noodles 
a handful of peanuts or cashews
Cadbury mini eggs

Ideally, melt the chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave or in a double boiler. (Or very gently in a pot on a propane campstove). Whichever method you choose, heat on low to medium temperature until almost completely melted. Remove from heat and stir until smooth and every bit has melted.
Dump the chow mein noodles and melted chocolate into a large bowl and stir to coat. Throw in a handful of nuts and stir some more.
Take large spoonfuls and drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with chocolate mini eggs then allow to set. If the fridge isn't out because of a power failure pop the tray in there for a quick set.
Boom, done!

Makes 8-10 large cookie nests
