What to do with Left Over Chocolate

Jen Jacobs

First of all, you shouldn’t have any left over chocolate, but if you do, here’s a cute idea to repurpose Easter candy leftovers. 

My husband Glen has been making these things since he was two, so now it’s tradition around our house that come spring and after Easter when the only thing left is the chocolate bunny, we melt it down and make nest cookies. Here’s what you need:


Chow Mein Noodles

Jelly Beans

Sauce pan

Cookie sheet

Wax paper

Line cookie sheets with wax paper. Slowly melt the chocolate in a saucepan until it’s a smooth consistency. Pour chow mein noodles into the chocolate and stir until the noodles are well coated. With a large table spoon, scoop out chocolate covered noodles and place a blob on the wax paper. While chocolate is still melty, arrange a few jelly beans on top of the blob. Repeat until all the noodles have been blobbed and jelly beaned. Stick the pans in the fridge to allow for cooling and curing. When the cookies are fully hardened, take a pancake turner and gently pry cookies off the wax paper.

They’re not difficult to make, but they’re a cute way to repurpose left over Easter candy. We use chow mein noodles, but you could use oatmeal or coconut instead.
