Christmas Bird Nests

Mr. Z and I headed east (only about 90 miles or so) for a family Christmas celebration today. I brought a sampling of yesterday's cookies, and these puppies were the clear winners.

These cookies are a happy accident, since Red grabbed peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch chips at the store. Although I'm sure any kind of chips would make these treats a success. The nice thing about these guys is that there is no oven involved.

Heat. Mix. Drop. Cool. Eat.

Here is the recipe:
1 bag peanut butter chips
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 bag milk chocolate chips
1 bag chowmein noodles
Mini marshmallows
Peanut M&Ms

Melt all of the chips over low heat. Add chowmein noodles and marshmallows, stir until everything is coated. Drop on wax paper and top immediately with M&Ms. I drizzled white chocolate, but you could add Christmas sprinkles or chopped up heath bar... really, at this time of year, anything goes (you could also add nuts to the chocolate mixture withe the noodles and marshmallows)! Let cool and enjoy!
