I have made these many time for my kids for Easter. 2 cups of chocolate chips and 1 cup of peanut butter actually covers 8 cups of chowmein noodles, not just 2 cups! I made 16 large (3 inches diameter) nests, and filled them with Hershey's Eggies in pretty pastel colours. My kids love them! They are a little messy to eat, as the chocolate starts melting in their hands, but that's what chocolate is all about at Easter!
